Botanical Garden of Pamplemousses

The oldest botanical garden in the southern hemisphere, this 60-acre site, which dates back to 1729 is packed with around 500 species of both local and imported flora, including the grapefruit-like pamplemousse, brought here by 16th-century Dutch explorers. The garden can be combined with a visit to the Beau Plan sugar mill, which gives insight into the history of sugar production and slavery on the island. The Château de Labourdonnais gives a taste of how the colonial sugar plantation owners lived by comparison.

On the edge of the untamed and beautiful Black River Gorges National Park and nestled alongside pineapple and sugar cane plantations, is the cheery and welcoming mountain village of Chamarel. It is well-known for its culinary scene and coffee and there is a great selection of restaurants. For something to wash your meal down, visit the working rum distillery and museum, La Rhumerie de Chamarel. The village’s best-known attraction, the Seven Coloured Earths is an area of different coloured sands. Visitors sometimes find it a little underwhelming but the Chamarel Waterfall, which drops almost 100m over the cliffs, rarely disappoints.

Flat Island

Also known as Ile Plate, this small, uninhabited, flat island lies around 11km off the northern coast at Cap Malheureux. With no facilities, it’s an idyllic isle lapped by clear and shallow waters, perfect for sunbathing and snorkelling. The Pigeon Rock area harbours a famous dive site called The Shark Pit, where divers can witness sharks swirling within the pit for the rich oxygen. Flat Island is a low lying island situated off the North coast of Mauritius, and in danger of possible submersion due to the historic rise in the sea-level due to global warming. The island is also home to an abandoned army base and one of Mauritius's few lighthouses still in operation which is accessible by a foot trail.

Grand Baie

Referred to as the Mauritian Cote d’Azur, this is by far the most developed resort area. The town of Grand Baie is arranged around a glorious (though busy) curve of fine golden sand, which offers good anchorage and a friendly yacht club. The colourful Tamil temple of Shiv Kalyan Vath Mandir, older than Surya Oudaya Sangam, warrants a visit. One of Mauritius’s best drift-dive sites, Whale Rock, has submerged caves to explore the abundance of marine life such as angel fish, trigger fish and clown fish. If you're lucky you might even spot a swordfish or hammerhead. At the end of the day, head back to the bone-white beaches and thatched cocktail hangouts to watch the sun disappear over the horizon.

Le Morne Brabant

Mauritius’s most iconic image – Le Morne Brabant is not only a striking bulk of a rock jutting into the sea but it has huge local and cultural significance. Rising 556m above sea level, it was one of the island’s hiding places for runaway slaves and legend has it that in 1835 as police arrived at the rock, a group of slaves jumped from the summit to their deaths rather than be recaptured. The police were apparently there to announce that slavery had been abolished. Le Morne Mountain has long represented a symbol of freedom, and in 2008 was inscribed onto the UNESCO World Heritage List where it's been welcoming thousands of local and foreign visitors ever since. Surrounded by the magnificent Mauritian lagoon, the steep sloped summit overhangs creating many caves beneath, which look out to the Indian Ocean and once sheltered escaped slaves.

Port Louis

The port capital’s muddle of old and new buildings – from 18-century colonial mansions to modern corporate towers - and tangle of streets give a sense of the island’s rich and cosmopolitan history. To get a feel of modern-day Mauritian life, visit on a weekday morning when the colourful and noisy open-air market is on. At the former immigration depot of Aapravisi Ghat, built in 1849, visitors can tour the buildings where indentured labourers were processed when they arrived to replace the slaves who had worked the sugar plantations.

The bustling coastal resort of Tamarin, backed by the imposing 777m bulk of the Rampart Mountain, is named after the Tamarind trees planted by the early Dutch settlers. Today, visitors come to enjoy the area’s sandy beaches and water sports or to take a dolphin trip. One of the most rewarding excursions here is to explore the twists and turns of the Rampart River mouth by kayak. This small fishing village exudes an incomparable energy and harmony, with waves and an incredible sunset that seduces visitors. The area's bohemian aura, is a hotspot for surfers due to the superb waves in the bay, with advanced surfers preferring to tackle the fearsome reef waves nearby. Be careful though as the currents are strong and have swept away many careless swimmers.
