When visiting the paradise island of Mauritius, it’s hard not to conjure up images of Robinson Crusoe in the mind’s eye. Gazing out towards a vast fresco of sea blues, creamy coloured sand and the many wonders of nature that populate the island – it’s easy to feel a little smug. Enjoy your nature-filled stay in Mauritius.
Surrounded by vegetation as far as the eye can see, the pristine sands of Mont Choisy beach make it one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. No boats will disturb your view of the sublime expanse of blue from the comfort of your deckchair, and there’s a conveniently located dive centre should you want to explore the underwater population of multicolored species. Guaranteed to give you chills and fill you with wonderment.
To really appreciate Mauritius, it helps to have a good head for heights! From Belle-Mare and Trou d'Eau Douce, several providers can organise a parachute jump for an unparalleled view of the lagoon. Suspended in the air, you can admire Mother Nature’s amazing designs in their many hues of green and blue. These few adrenaline-filled minutes in the air will seem like hours!
Nestled in the heart of the wild coast, So Sofitel Mauritius exudes luxury and tranquility. Start your sensory journey with a visit to the spa, where wellbeing professionals will transport your mind and body to a better place. Massages in Mauritius, traditional Chinese treatments and beauty packages...the island has everything you need to truly escape reality for a while. After your relaxation is over, why not treat your tastebuds in one of the delicious restaurants? At La Plage bar, you can enjoy the local culinary specialties with your feet planted in the sand and eyes locked on the ocean. Or maybe you prefer to visit Flamboyant, where local seafood combines with French and Mauritian know-how? After dinner, we suggest indulging in one of the many activities offered by the establishment. Whether that’s a boat trip, diving or snorkeling experience, game of tennis or spot of golf – there’s no shortage of things to do!
To experience paradise in an even more private setting, l’île Plate is highly recommended. Book a small motor boat trip, complete with a guide, to enjoy rum-based aperitifs, local food and traditional music as you make your way to the island. Once you’ve arrived safely, snorkeling and diving are a must-do for a closer look at the hundreds of species of fish and shells.
