Where to go

Mauritius has a tropical climate meaning that it is warm or hot all year round. There is however enough variation between the months, in terms of temperature, rainfall, sun, risk of showers and cyclones, that it is worth having a think before the compulsion to book your Mauritius family holiday has overcome you. If you don’t have a choice on timing, just book it anyway, as you have to be very unlucky at any time of year for the entire trip to be ruined by the weather, especially where children are concerned.

Where to holiday in Mauritius?

We would say at all costs avoid the centre unless you are here for work. The centre is on a plateau and is cooler, wetter and further from the beautiful coast. All four coasts are lovely, and if you are there to just enjoy the beach and pool, then just find any good hotel and relax. If other factors are important then read on.

The North

This is the busiest region with the most restaurants, bars and activities on the island. It is the most touristy, and has some of the best beaches on the island, notably, Trou-aux-biches, Pereybere and Mont Choisy. There is no mass-tourism in Mauritius here so it never feels too crowded except for perhaps Christmas and New Year. In addition to the beaches above, the North region also includes Grand Gaube, Cap Malheureux, and Balaclava. There are lots of activities for children if they fancy something different.

The South

This has the most wild and rugged coast, but equally the most strikingly beautiful. It is a picturesque drive along the South Coast, with plenty of beaches that you can just park next to and have privacy and solitude. There are no supermarkets other than small stores so you will rely on hotels and not much else down there.

The East

Another beautiful coast, with the beaches of Bell-Mare and Pointe d’Esny (South-east) the highlights. There are some wonderful little villages to visit, with fresh fish at Trou d’Eau Douce restaurants being a firm favourite of ours.

The West

Hotels on the West Coast are generally contained in two locations in the West. In Flic-en-flac, which has a stunning beach with many restaurants and bars nearby, and Le Morne (South West) which is perhaps the most beautiful location on this island, displayed in many brochures and postcards, the mountainous rock sits right next to the beach, an Instagram Influencers dream.
