Looking for the ideal destination for your next family vacation? With its beautiful sandy beaches, protected lagoons with a nice temperature all year round, and countless activities for all ages, Mauritius is perfect for a family getaway and quality time. Whether at the hotel or during the journeys awaiting you, your stay in Mauritius promises to be memorable for young ones as well as for the young at heart.
Mauritius is the ideal destination for a return to nature. Forests such as the Black River Gorges National Park, Ebony Forest in Chamarel or the Bras d'Eau National Park in the East, will plunge the whole family into an unexpected world, in the heart of a preserved nature. Discover centenary endemic trees and protected native animals such as the Pink Pigeon, the Mauritian Parakeet, the Paradise Flycatcher and the very rare Kestrel. Ile aux Aigrettes is also worth a visit. The island is part of a conservation program and encompasses a unique flora and fauna. That will be a complete change of scenery!
Leisure parks are very appealing to the more adventurous. From quad biking to zip lining, and safari to approach African animals, countless possibilities are available to families at the Gros Cailloux Park, Casela and La Vallée des Couleurs. Giant Aldabra tortoises and crocodiles are waiting for your visit at La Vanille reserve; the most impressed will probably not be the youngest ones…
The time spent at the hotel will never get boring neither. Hotels in Mauritius offer a wide choice of sea and land activities to do with the family. Some of them also offer art or cooking workshops, an opportunity to learn a little more about local cuisine while having fun with the family. Some children will prefer to spend time at the Kids’ Club with other kids of the resort while their parents relax on the beach or at the spa. Babysitter services are also usually available. The activities proposed are very diverse and resourceful, both indoors and outdoors, suitable for different age groups. Some resorts even organise outings on the surrounding islands for teenagers who will love playing adventurers!
