A-Mauritian-Holiday-Beyond-the-Beaches

Take a hike

Going on a holiday usually means lounging around and doing nothing. In this case you will have the idyllic Mauritian beaches to enjoy your cocktails and massages at; basically the obvious stuff. However, if you decide to take the path less taken and take an amazing hike around the place, you will realise you can explore so much more this way. The Black River Gorges National Park and Yanature are ideal spots for the same. You can not only have the chance to explore an interesting terrain, but will also be thrilled with the beauty of the flora and fauna of the place. You will come across a number of birds and animals along your hike and can admire them in their natural glory.

 

Visit the oldest race course

The Champ De Mars Race course is one of the oldest in the world and is located in Port Louis. It was inaugurated in the year 1812 and since then has been the venue for the most thrilling horse racing in the region. You will be thrilled to catch races here and have the best time with your friends and family.

 

Go fish!

Imagine going fishing in the amazing blue waters of Mauritius, well you can do exactly that. The blue Marlin and the Black Marlin are spots where you can find the best catches and will be able to make a good day trip out of it. Being able to enjoy freshly caught fish is something that will be one of your fondest holiday memories.

 

Taste the heat

The typical Mauritian food is nothing short of crazy. There is crushed chilli served with every meal. If you truly wish to become a part of the local culture, you have to dare to bear the heat. Even though the food is scrumptious, you may want to take it slow when trying the chilli or you can end up sweaty and uneasy by the end of the meal.

 

Take a leap into history

There are beautiful museums and antique shops that have preserved the history of Mauritius. The Blue Penny Museum, the Curious Corner of Chamarel, the Chateau de Labourdonnais, the National History Museum and so on are some of the best places to visit; museum-hopping is one of the best things you can do here to learn about the history and culture of Mauritius.

 

Explore raw and wild Mauritius

Ever fancied walking with the big cats? You can do this in Mauritius. At the Casela Nature Park, this is something you can do. There are guided walks and tours here where you can have a look at the majestic lions and tigers and cheetahs in their natural habitat. Mauritius will make all your dreams come true!
