This list contains everything I saw during my trip in Mauritius. I added some tips to the attractions. If you would like to know more check out my reviews.
Notice first (this is my own opinion) don't believe what the books say about the beaches. Yes the beaches are white and the water is blue. The books say that one beach is even more beautiful then the other. Which I think is not really true. A beach is just a beach there. After reading the books I though it would be paradise on earth and it is if you have never seen white beaches before. I've seen some beaches before and these were not the best ones. So don't get your expectations up to high! Same thing with Grand Baie the 'touristic' place. Yes there are some shops, but don't expect beautiful buildings or a nice boulevard!
We visited Mauritius in august, so it is winter there. temperatures around 25 degrees. Make sure you bring an umbrella/rainsuit and some warm clothing. Temperatures can drop easily.
If you are into history visit Mapou: chateau de laboirdonnais.
