Mauritius is situated east of Madagascar and lies over 2000kms off the east coast of Southern Africa. The island is 45km wide and 65km in length.
Mauritian culture is a wonderful blend of English, French, Chinese, Creole, Hindu and Muslim influences and the warmth and hospitality of the people can be seen the moment you arrive onto the island. English is the official language on the island, although French and Creole are mostly spoken amongst the local community.
Apart from the warm turquoise Indian Ocean waters, tropical white sandy beaches, luxurious hotels and wonderful service, Mauritius offers a wealth interesting places to see during your stay on the island. The Caudan waterfront in the capital of Port Louis is a vibrant daytime venue of outdoor cafes, restaurants and shops. In the North of the island, Grand Baie offers some wonderful shopping opportunities and at night is probably the best place to experience some of the local nightlife. The picturesque fishing village of Cap Malheureux, on the North Coast, with its red-roofed church is well worth a visit.
In the local towns and villages in the central plateaux area of the island such as Floreal, Curepipe and Quatre Bornes you will find some great shopping bargains and experience the local way of life. For those visiting in February / March, during the colourful Hindu Maha Shivaratri festival, a trip to the Hindu pilgrimage site of Grand Bassin, one of the islands' two natural lakes, is a worthwhile visit.
Full or half-day catamaran cruises to Ile aux Cerf on the East coast or Ilot Gabriel on the North Coast are highly recommended and you may even be lucky enough to see flying fish or even Dolphins.
Mauritius is not far from the Capricorn. That means that the sun is longer at its highest point than anywhere else.
Usually in winter (means May to October) the highest temperatures vary between 20°C and 26°C in the coastal regions. In summer (November to April) it’s slightly higher, meaning 26°C to 32°C .The water temperature of the Indian Ocean can go up to 28°C. Usually wind is blowing quiet steady from easterly directions.
Important to know: Mauritius has a micro-climate: it could rain cats and dogs where you are. Only a few kilometers away sun is shining and no cloud in sight. If you wake up in the morning with a gray sky, don’t worry. Go for your shower, have breakfast and after the sky will be blue.
