    Let us take you to Chamarel, Mauritius
    Let us take you to Chamarel, Mauritius The village of Chamarel in southwest Mauritius is home to two natural wonders – the magnificent Chamarel Falls and the colored earths of Chamarel. The earths are particularly unsual; created by volcanic rocks that cooled at different temperatures, the earths form beautiful patterns of color in the exposed hillsides. And if you mix the colored earth together, they’ll eventually settle into separate layers. Sometimes the colors play tricks on you and appear to be shadows. Close to Black River Gorges National Park, from the village of Case Noyale, a winding road leads to the coloured earths at Chamarel. Over time the weathering and subsequent erosion of volcanic ash has led to the formation of exposed hills complete with contrasting tiers of different shades of red, yellow, green and blue. From the hillside an easy walking trail leads to the beautiful...

  • Shopping in Mauritius: What you need to know
    Shopping in Mauritius: What you need to know
    Shopping in Mauritius: What you need to know Mauritius became a duty-free port in 2010 and has the best shopping in the Indian Ocean. The island is known for diamonds, designer clothing, cashmere and linen, which can be a third of the price back home. Many of the best shops, and a craft market, are found in Le Caudan Waterfront in Port Louis, but there are markets island-wide and a wide selection of shops on the central plateau. Organized shopping excursions will take you to a selection of tourist-oriented shopping centres, including Le Caudan and key markets (Mahébourg is the cheapest), but for serious shopping it’s best to strike out on your own. For clothing, shopping centres sell western labels at western prices, but decent high-street brands and quality cotton clothing can be found at knock-down prices at markets (try Flacq and Quatre Bornes), in factory shops,...

  • Not to miss: Famous watersports in Mauritius
    Not to miss: Famous watersports in Mauritius
    Not to miss: Famous watersports in Mauritius Mauritius’s dive sites are the best in the Indian Ocean, ranging from canyons to submerged wrecks teeming with tropical fish, eagle rays, turtles, sharks and moray eels. The best dive sites are found in the west and the islands off the north coast, while Rodrigues is just as inviting, with colourful coral and virgin sites to be found in the east. There are around fifty dive centres registered with Mauritius Scuba Diving Association (MSDA), of which many are PADI and CMAS certified. Most are based in hotels and resorts with access for non-residents, and cater for novice to experienced divers, with good equipment and English-speaking instructors. December to May is the best time of the year for doing watersports as waters are clear, calm and warm; June to July is best avoided. All decent-sized hotels arrange snorkelling trips, with masks,...

  • Food & Drink : What you need to know about the Mauritian cuisine
    Food & Drink : What you need to know about the Mauritian cuisine
    A big family meal equals happiness for most Mauritians, and with a blend of Indian, African, French and Chinese culinary traditions, island cuisine is tasty, unique and varied. Locals mix and match, so it’s quite usual to have croissants for breakfast, Indian dholl puri for lunch and Chinese-influenced bol renversé for supper. Unsurprisingly seafood features heavily, with dishes ranging from octopus curry to vindaye (deep-fried fish coated in turmeric, ginger, chillies and mustard seeds) – both usually served with rice as the main staple. The island also produces camarons (freshwater crayfish) and smoked blue marlin, which is delicious when combined with palm heart salad. You’ll also find plenty of fresh fruit including lychees, mangoes, pineapple and bananas. French hunting traditions are reflected in seasonal game such as venison and wild boar, which is served on the domaines or estates themselves as well as in the island’s restaurants...
