Mauritius for Families

Mauritius for Families

The Indian Ocean is described by many as the definition of paradise, with its lush sandy beaches and jaw-dropping scenery. At the centre of it all is Mauritius, an island with some of the warmest waters in the southern hemisphere, lush tropical rainforests and not to forget, its first-class service.


Honeymooners and sun seekers flock there year after year, but the destination is just as extraordinary for families - with activities galore! For diving enthusiasts or those that have only yet marvelled at the idea, there are plenty of opportunities to explore the marine life (and there's plenty of it)! In fact, there are over 430 marine species and 200 coral species to gaze at in those lovely warm waters. There are plenty of idyllic spots to choose from too – and most are just a short boat ride away from the shore, making it easy for the whole family.

For those who prefer to stay on the ground, check out Mauritius' many golfing spots, with over 100 clubs to choose from. Whether you're a golf fanatic or just want to give it a go, you'll be in good company. And not to mention the incredible scenery throughout – it's worth hiring a driver to explore the island's gorges, waterfalls, botanical gardens and volcanic rocks. There's so much to see.

A range of activities for all to enjoy
