WHEN SHOULD I GO TO MAURITIUS:
Mauritius has a tropical climate characterised by dry and rainy seasons. During our autumn and winter months, Mauritius is mild and summery.
In October and November, while it's cold and wet in Europe, you can soak up the sun in Mauritius. At this time of the year, it's relatively dry on the island.
The hottest months are January and February, with temperatures exceeding 30 degrees. In the Mauritian winter, from July to August, you can benefit from particularly attractive prices. At this time of the year, it's not as hot and stifling.
GOOD TO KNOW:
The island of Mauritius has a volcanic origin. It is largely surrounded by coral reefs which have created protective and crystal clear lagoons. Mauritius has been a dream holiday destination for a long time. The Arabs knew the island in the 10th century, but it was not officially "discovered" until later, by the Portuguese seafarer Pedro Mascarenhas. Mauritius then came under Dutch rule (1598 - 1712), later under French rule (1715 - 1810), and finally in 1814 it was ceded to Great Britain. Mauritius gained independence on 12 March 1968. Today, it presents itself as a first-rate holiday destination and one of the most popular golf destinations.
THE TOP 5 SIGHTS:
1. Ile aux Cerfs
The island off the east coast of Mauritius boasts beautiful sandy beaches and an 18-hole golf course designed by Bernhard Langer. Guests of the Le Touessrok reach the island via the hotel's own shuttle boat service. We advise all other visitors to go on an excursion to the Ile aux Cerfs by catamaran.
The coloured earth of Chamarel (terres des coleurs de Chamarel) is of volcanic origin and seems to shine in all the colours of the interior of the earth.
Especially in the morning and in the evening, the slightly wave-like ground makes the light shimmer in many different colours.
3. Tamarin waterfalls
It's not that straightforward to find, but definitely worth a visit: you can take a cooling bath in the Tamarin waterfalls and enjoy a magnificent view.
4. Black River Gorges
The 6,500-hectare National Park was founded in 1994. Here you can explore the original landscapes, plants and birds of Mauritius.
5. Botanical Garden in Pampelmousses
North-east of Port Louis, you find the Garden of Pampelmousses, which was created in 1767 by Pierre Poivre and is considered by many the heart of the island. It is 90 hectares in size and one of the most species-rich and beautiful botanical gardens in the world. Without a doubt, the top attraction is the pond with the cartwheel-sizes water lily pads (Victoria regia). In the northern part of the garden you find the colonial house Chateau de Plaisir, which was built in the middle of the 19th century.
