There’s much to do and see on a tropical island. Day eco-tours are a great way to sample not only privileged island-sights, but also authentic island cuisine.
There is so much to explore in Mauritius! And when, just a few years ago, visitors went for the white sandy beaches and the hotel activities, they have nowadays discovered that the island offers an amazing array of exciting, adventurous and thrilling holiday attractions.
Ranging from diving, snorkelling, boating and kayaking right up to canyoning, quad-biking horse riding, zip lining and skydiving, anyone with the appropriate fitness level can find the leisure activity that suits them best. Rare plant and bird-species wait to be discovered in the National Park, which is criss-crossed by a system of trails for nature-lovers with any degree of endurance.
But that is by far not it! A range of sustainable day tours enables an encounter with the unique nature of Mauritius, its beautiful but fragile eco-system, multi-faceted religious and cultural life. Eco-tours grant insights into the sizzling melting pot which is Mauritius; not only as far as races go, but also concerning the mouth-watering island cuisine and amazing history.
Travellers with children might like a visit of a Nature Park, where they can meet animals up-close and choose their favourite activities. Or else opt for a leisurely catamaran cruise, with included snorkelling stops to discover the fascinating underwater life of the turquoise lagoon. Most catamaran cruises are topped by a visit to the outer isles, where passengers are treated with a barbecue of grilled fish and specially prepared sweet tasting local banana.
