Visit Mauritius, says the Himalayan Times
A recent article in the Himalayan Times gets right to the heart of why holidays in Mauritius are so appealing.
Of course, the beaches are a large part of the allure, with every coast home to its own distinct stretches of sand. The article highlights Mont Choisy and Trou aux Biches as being among the best, and we’ve written extensively about our favourites in features on the south coast, north coast, best beaches for swimming, and the top spots to see the sunset.
Also noted by the Himalayan Times is the island’s rich history and multiculturalism. Mauritius is home to two World Heritage Sites and numerous old plantation houses, both of which give a glimpse into the history of the island’s peoples. Read our features on Eureka House and Domaine des Aubineaux and the story of tea for more of an insight.
For those after nothing more than a relaxing break in the tropics, the article places an emphasis on spas and rightly so. With so many five star hotels and resorts it’s little wonder our spa scene is thriving. For more information, we’ve got the lowdown on unusual treatments, how to enjoy the ultimate spa break and even specific spa treatments for men to whet your appetite.
Finally, we can’t leave without mentioning the food. This is truly a highlight of any visit to Mauritius with everything from street food (think: dhal puri, alouda and sweet potato cakes, and unusual fruits) to homegrown breweries, fancy French patisseries and Creole Haute Cuisine.
