Mauritius Luxury Yachting Guide

It would be hard to find any worldly place where the sand runs smoother and the ocean gleams brighter than the heavenly island of Mauritius. A long-standing honeymoon favourite where the world beneath the water is just as spectacular as the one above, Mauritius is a luxury paradise unlike any other.

An intriguing mix of French and Indian cultures, this tiny island has developed its own alluring ambience that has been enticing discerning travellers to its shores for many a year. Tropical palms and turquoise seas dominate the scenery in this part of the Indian Ocean, where the Mauritius shoreline stretches for 300 kilometres of uninterrupted beauty. Sunbathing delights abound on the beach pleasures of Belle Mare, Flic-en-Flac, Le Morne and Pereybere, while Grand Baie and Blue Bay are the perfect water sport locations.

Underwater
Boasting coral gardens of unbelievable colour beneath its waters, Mauritius also provides a dizzying number of superb diving and snorkelling sites off its shoreline. No matter which part of the island you choose to spend time, the scenes that await are guaranteed to impress.

Port Louis
The dainty waterfront area of Port Louis is full of character and boasts a brilliant range of shopping and entertainment options, including an impressive casino. One of the most diverse dining areas on the island, Port Louis is a positive menagerie of rich and exotic treats for the senses.

Isle aux Aigrettes
The Isle aux Aigrettes is a naturalist’s dream, a pristine nature reserve only accessible by boat that was once home to the famous dodo and now houses delightful flocks of pink pigeons and giant tortoises. For a more adventurous look at the island’s exciting wildlife, the south of the island is home to the La Vanille Crocodile Park, home to over 1000 crocodiles skulking in the dark waters.

Inland
Head inland away from the luring whisper of the ocean to discover another side of Mauritius where cascading waterfalls, extinct volcanoes and vegetation-rich mountains fill the landscape. Fiercely protected by its government, the number of visitors allowed to visit Mauritius each year is strictly limited to ensure the unique atmosphere and natural charm of this idyllic island is preserved.
