Around the island in a day

Around the island in a day

By Lisa Vial

Who has not dreamed of going on a paradisiacal adventure, discovering breathtaking landscapes and new cultures? Let's taste what this extraordinary experience could be like in Mauritius.

Rent a gorgeous car, powerful motorcycles or take advantage of the services of a private driver... There are many transport alternatives that allow you to explore the island.

From Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam Airport in the South-East Mauritius, go around the island clockwise, starting from the South. What could be better than an incursion into the Mauritian regions to identify what may become later the district of your future cocoon?  The exploration begins.

The Southern Seas

Starting from the turquoise lagoon of Blue Bay, the Southern Road is home to magnificent wild beaches, less known and frequented than the famous beaches of the North and West. Not far from the historic village of Souillac, discover Gris Gris’ beach and cliffs. The high volcanic rocks spread over several kilometres, giving way to some natural spots that seem to live and breathe the spray of the coast, such as Le Souffleur or the surprising Pont Naturel.

If the wild charm of the South seduces you, discover this charming waterfront house for rent on the Blue Bay lagoon. 

A Climb Up the West

After enjoying the island's paradisiacal beaches - a must in Mauritius - enjoy a hike up the Western mountain range. Classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Morne Mountain offers one of the most beautiful views of the lagoons that Mauritius is famous for. Three levels are provided to allow both amateurs and pros to have a blast. Discover the immense pleasure of experiencing this one of a kind adventure.

Have you been charmed by the warm life of the West? We suggest you this spacious apartment for rent in Tamarin, with direct access to La Preneuse beach.

A Cultural Centre

Following the sublime Black River Gorges via Chamarel road, join the Route du Thé, Colonial Domaine des Aubineaux, Jardin des Camphriers, essential oil distillery, Bois Chéri tea factory... Immerse yourself in the island's History and discover what it holds in store for you.

The refreshing atmosphere of the Centre is a great comfort. Enjoy it on the long term thanks to this magnificent penthouse rented in Floréal.

A North Full of Flavours

A tour like this one deserves a delicious lunch break. Taste the inimitable Table du Château de Labourdonnais, where Chef Fabio de Poli prepares a very creative menu especially for you, inspired by the local orchard’s fruits and vegetables. Your taste buds will also be delighted by the Salle à Manger of the Demeure Saint Antoine, offering you refined dishes in a friendly atmosphere and a sumptuous setting.

If the lively North remains your favourite, opt for this sublime triplex house in the heart of Pereybère, close to the sea. 

The Grande Finale of the East

After crossing all the cardinal points of Mauritius, your journey will naturally end in the East. Station your car, park your motorcycles and board a boat to end your adventure on a high note on the clear sea. In the East, many islands, each more heavenly than the next, are waiting to be visited: Île aux Cerfs, Île des Deux Cocos or Île aux Aigrettes, offering you nautical activities and delicious cocktails in the heart of an endemic fauna and flora.

Finish your memorable day on the sofa of this luxurious penthouse for rent at Poste Lafayette, with breathtaking views over the lagoon.
