Mauritius - God's canvas

After our recent trip to Mauritius, I would like to share the following:-

1. If a person has seen the hill/mountains in India-Himalays-North East-Western Ghats then spend not more than 1 day to visit Curepipe/Seven Color Earth/Sleeping volcano. Spend the evening in Port Louis and have dinner in Namaste Restaurnt. No point in wasting the long road trips, especially if you are staying in the picturesque Northern part of the island
2. Spend all the balance days visiting only the beaches which are God's canvas. Keep gazing at the white sand, the astounding reefs.
3. If you are visiting Ile Aux Cerfs, ensure you reach the island as early as possible as it closes at 4 PM.
4. While in Grand Bay I strongly recommend a gentleman (whose name I forgot) but was a thorough gentleman and an expert on Coral Reefs. He represent La Chouette. He was very sincere and had a passion for marine studies. In fact this was the best part of the trip.
5. If you are fresh from your overseas journey and the hotel is in the northern part, I would suggest that southern part of the island is completed en-route otherwise you would be wasting your time in the road trips.
6.Tairssa Resort and Mont Choice Beach are heavenly.
7. Don't forget to spend the beach time during 7-9 Am and 5-6 PM as during the afternoon the 3 shades of the water colour is not clearly visible.
8. Also the sunset should not be missed.
9. Take rubber slippers and don't worry about towels as the resorts have interesting arrangements for the same.
10.Undersea walk is fabulous and ensure that all your documents/cards is kept in hotel locker. Keep bare minimum cash as it involves lot of dress changes. Avoid taking mobiles. Undersea photo is arranged by the concerned operator and you need take the camera to the platform where the walk takes place.

Paradise island

Looking for a relaxing but romantic environment? Go to Mauritius.

It is a small island. One can either make one resort their base or could move to other resorts as per the travel plan. Moving around is not much of an issue as public transport is easily accessible and taking a car on rent is also quite affordable. We started from West, went down south one day and towards east one day. Spent first four days at Sugar Beach Flic en Flac and next three days at Beachcomber in Grand Baie.

Local food is quite delicious. For Indians, finding Indian food is not difficult.

Mauritius is known for white sand beaches and real blue sea. The water/sea sports/activities are as fun as they could be anywhere else. If one is into hiking, one can always go to black water forest. And if one is not much into any of the former, relaxing at the beach with a hat and sunglasses is always the option.

I mostly relaxed, moved only when the wife wanted me to. Relay loved seven colored land and the big turtles there.

Advice: Rent a car (negotiate the price well), carry the currency in dollars and exchange from Western Union which gives the best price. Try to stay at the same resort for longer period.
