Mauritius – Paradise for families too!

The Indian Ocean could be described as the definition of paradise, with its lush sandy beaches and jaw dropping scenery and 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 world class service – but would you consider Mauritius for families?

Exploring more of Mauritius

Honeymooners and sun seekers flock here year after year, but the destination is just as extraordinary for families, with activities galore! For diving enthusiasts, or for those that have only yet marvelled at the idea, there are plenty of opportunities to explore the marine life (and there is 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 the scenery too, it’s worth hiring a driver to explore the island’s gorges, waterfalls, botanical gardens and volcanic rocks. There’s so much to see.
