There aren't any real towns in the area so I can't think what you'd do in such a short time, unfortunately. Unless you just take a taxi and go for a sight seeing drive in the area. Personally I'd hang out at the airport but let's see what others suggest.
By the time you've got off the plane and into a taxi etc. and allowed plenty of time for arriving back for the next flight it won't be 5 hours. As you've already visited Mauritius and as Dee says there's nothing much to see near to the airport I'd just chill out in the lounge
Etihad has the bad habbit of delaying the flight from SEY to MRU since it is the same plane that takes all the tourists from Abu Dhabi to Seychelles. Last November when I flew between MRU and SEY and back, the delay was ranging from 60 to 90 minutes so there is no time remaining for visiting Mauritius.
thanks everyone. Looks like I will be catching up on work at the airport.
