Places to visit

Venture into the island’s interior to reveal the enchanting Trou aux Cerfs, a dormant volcano shrouded in lush rainforests and cascading waterfalls carving their way through deep ravines. You will also find Black River Gorges National Park, with its rugged peaks and verdant landscapes, inviting you to embark on exhilarating hikes and explore Hindu temples and historic colonial mansions.

While you’re exploring inland, you can take an aromatic journey along the tea route, and keep your eyes peeled for some of the rare species found here, from giant tortoises to pink pigeons and the Mauritian kestrel.

Le Morne, a small island off the coast, is a captivating addition to Mauritius' allure. This UNESCO World Heritage site coaxes you in with its historical significance and stunning views.
