Mauritius, an island-nation in the Indian Ocean is a popular tourist destination that has a wealth of fascinating attractions. From beautiful beaches to dense forests and aquamarine waters, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
Here are 4 fun things you can do to make the most of your Mauritius tour package:
One of the best benefits of visiting an island destination is being able to explore the underwater world around it. As you’d expect, Mauritius is home to a number of dive sites such as the Cathedral off Flic en Flac, Whale Rock, Roche Zozo and a submerged crater close to Ile Ronde. There are even ship wrecks from the 18th and 19th centuries that have formed amazing artificial reefs. As for a natural reef, the island is almost completely surrounded by a beautiful barrier coral reef. The waters, wrecks and reefs are home to a number of sponges, sea anemones and brightly coloured damselfish, trumpet fish, clown fish and a wealth of other marine life that you can see in their natural habitat.
Mauritius is famous for its beaches, but one of its hidden treasures that you can explore during your Mauritius tour package is its amazing variety of wildlife. The Casela Nature Park is home to lions, giraffes, elephants, a Bird Park and Canopy Park and even an amazing Animal Show that you just shouldn’t miss. But before that, make sure to go on an African safari and spot these animals as they lead their lives out on the open Savannah.
An unforgettable experience, sky diving anywhere will give you an adrenaline rush like no other. But skydiving over Mauritius is truly special because of the spectacular view of white beaches, blue waters and green forests you get to enjoy as you hurtle towards the ground from a height of 10,000 feet. It’s not for the faint-hearted, but don’t let that stop you from having one of the most memorable experiences you could possibly have on a Mauritius tour package, since you’ll be guided by an instructor the whole time.
Explore the lagoons around the island, the deep blue waters of the outer reefs of Mauritius, the remains of a 1902 shipwreck or even visit the enchantingly beautiful Casita Bay on a wonderful catamaran cruise. You could also opt to take it easy and enjoy a magnificent ocean sunset with a sunset cruise or enjoy an incredible meal out on the open water with a dinner cruise. Catamaran cruises let you take in the stunning environs of the country at a luxurious, relaxed pace while enjoying cocktails and delicious snacks on board.
Whether you choose to do just one activity or create a Mauritius bucket list and try them all, you’re sure to have a fantastic time in this exceptional travel destination for sure.
