Mauritius island

Ultimate guide 2017
Mauritius - luxury tourist island in the Indian Ocean. However, budget tourism is possible last years. Contrary to popular belief beaches of Mauritius are not so good. Nature is also not so good as in neighboring Reunion and Seychelles. Beach and seabed: sand, stones. [edit]

Hotels [edit]

Mauritius is famous for huge amount of luxury five-star hotels. If you want to get the maximum pleasure of your beach holiday, we recommend to choose an expensive hotel with a nice beach. Because the best beaches belong to the hotels in Mauritius.

Budget travelers can also find an inexpensive room. There is evidence that some tourists lived in Mauritius for $10 per night. Though in general the beaches in Mauritius are not very good, however a few good public beaches are available. Notice that all beaches in Mauritius are considered to be public, so feel free to sunbathe near the water in front of an expensive hotel. Though at a distance of 10 meters from the water's edge the private beach area may begin, where hotel non-residents are not admitted. However, most of the year beach hotels in Mauritius are not very high packed. So in many cases you will be able to have free access to facilities of an expensive hotel - sunbeds, shower and pool.

How to get there [edit]

Fly to Mauritius International Airport (MRU). Continue by the taxi or by public transport.

Keep mind that it may be cheaper first to fly to the neighboring Reunion island, and next fly to Mauritius.

Food in Mauritius is a little expensive, but comparable to Europe. If you want to save, choose fruits and rum. These are good and cheap.

These is also a great meat boutique Epicerie Nicolas in Pointe aux Canonniers.

Prices in Super U & in Winners.

What are the prices for food in Mauritius (markets, supermarkets)? Is it expensive? I want to stay for a month, and need to plan my budget.

I'm not sure, but diving with whales is prohibited in Mauritius since 2013. Also most likely that you will be attacked by sharks if go outside the reef. Especially in Reunion.

Where is the best place for free diving with whales in Mauritius? Maybe Reunion?

I don't recommend to live in a tent in Mauritius. It's not safe. And it also makes no sense, as you can easily find cheap room.

Is it possible to live in a tent in Mauritius?
