For those looking to combine time on the beach with some laid back exploration to local highlights, a three-centre stay in Mauritius will provide a wonderful itinerary. The island is relatively small, so it is easy to move from place to place, and offers sweeping beaches, fantastic swimming opportunities, along with a rich culinary scene and the chance to get off the beaten track in the inland mountainous scenery. Start your trip with four nights on the southwesterly side of the island, sample street food at Port Louis, hike in the Black River Gorge National Park, explore the coastline by boat, or simply relax on the coast. From here, hire a car to head towards the more remote eastern side of the island, perhaps stopping at Chamarel on the way for lunch. On arrival at your next hotel, for those wanting more activity, kite-surfing and mountain biking are on offer, or picnic on the beautiful eastern beaches of Ile aux Cerfs and Ilot Mangenie. Finally head north to the famous Belle Plage region for five nights in your final hotel, chosen to make the most of your remaining time on the beach.
