Be in Enchanting Places While Enjoying Mauritius Holidaysby Daisy Wilkinson Travel Guides
Located off the south-eastern coast of Africa, Mauritius is an island nation that is renowned worldwide for its attractive natural features, including the white-sand beaches. What would really make your holiday in this part of the world memorable is the warm hospitality of the locals. This island destination is home to a multi-cultural and multi-lingual population, including the Indo-Mauritians, Creoles, Sino-Mauritians, and Franco-Mauritians. In recent times, Mauritius is one of the world's major tourist destinations with more than a million tourists arriving in the country every year.
The best time to enjoy your Mauritius holidays is between May and December when the island experiences a cool, dry, and sunny weather. You'll have pleasant daytime temperatures in this season to go sightseeing and have a wonderful time on the beaches. From the month of May until October, the island experiences its winter season and there is a slight drop in temperatures. However, if you visit during the summer season between November and April, you'll have hot and humid days. Avoid visiting the country during its wet cyclone season, which begins in the month of January and lasts until March. It is also advisable to avoid being on the east coast during the months of July and August owing to strong winds.
During your time spent in Mauritius, you'll get the chance to explore some fascinating attractions on the island. One of them is the Mauritius Botanical Garden located near the capital city of Port Louis. It covers a vast area of over 35 hectares and is well-known for its collection of palms brought from Africa, Central America, Asia, and the Indian Ocean islands. You'll also have a great time exploring Black River Gorges National Park, which spans an area of more than 6,500 hectares. You'll also be delighted to visit the island of Ile aux Cerfs, which is home to some majestic sandy beaches, a beautiful lagoon, and facilities to enjoy a wide range of activities.
Your holiday in this island destination would also give you the chance to indulge in some exciting activities outdoors. Among them is diving, which you can enjoy in its safe lagoons that stretch up to the barrier reef. Of all the dive sites located in Mauritius, Cathedral is one of the most popular ones. With some of the award-winning golf courses on the island, you'll certainly get to play a round or more of this popular sport. The shopping malls and markets of the island country would give you ample opportunities to shop for souvenirs and gifts.
While in Mauritius, you can also taste some of its delicious dishes. One of the Sino-Mauritian delights is Bol Renverse, which literally translates as 'Upside Down Bowl'. Also known as 'Magic Bowl', this delicacy is a rice-based dish and is quite similar to Chop Suey. Biryani is also widely eaten in Mauritius and is prepared using 'Basmati' rice along with meat and a variety of spices and herbs. Don't miss 'Dholl Puri and Roti', which is one of the favourite street foods of the locals.
