Island Adventures & Resort Fun in Mauritius

On this Platinum DreamTrip, stay at a beachfront resort, go on a daytrip to a picturesque island & visit historic Port Louis.

About Your Trip

Combine the best of shore and sea on this Platinum DreamTrip to Balaclava on the gorgeous island nation of Mauritius, starting with an island adventure. You’ll jet off in a speedboat to the private island of Ile aux Cerfs. After a visit to the gorgeous Grand River South East Waterfalls, head to the beach for some fun in the sun! Swim, snorkel, explore the exotic surroundings and feast on a delicious Creole barbecue lunch on the beach.

On your next full-day tour, you’ll head to the capital city of Port Louis to see some of its many historic landmarks. Go for a stroll down Place d’Armes, the city’s beloved boulevard lined with royal palms. At the end of the avenue, you’ll reach the Parliament House, which features a statue of Queen Victoria front and center. After your walk, you’ll be treated to a refreshing glass of alouda, a local drink comprised of vanilla, basil seeds, agar jelly and milk — sometimes it’s even topped with a scoop of ice cream! Your journey continues to Pamplemousses Botanical Garden. There, you can marvel at 85 types of palm trees, including talipot palms, which grow for up to 80 years before blooming and dying. After a stop for lunch in Grand Bay, sit back and enjoy a scenic drive along the sinuous coastal road to the historic Red Roof Chapel in Cap Malheureux, or the “cape of misfortune” — so named because of the many ships that once wrecked upon nearby coral reefs. Your last stop is Historic Marine, a model ship factory in the charming village of Goodlands, where you can watch local artisans at work.

The rest of your getaway is entirely made up of free time to enjoy the amenities at your beachside resort or explore the area on your own. Don’t forget to take advantage of your complimentary 60-minute deep renewal massage at the resort’s spa!

What we love:
• The World Travel Awards has named the country the “World’s Leading Honeymoon Destination” 4 times.
• The British defeated the French and gained control of Cap Malheureux in 1810.
• Mark Twain said it best: “Mauritius was made first, and then heaven.”

Destination

The remote, tropical island nation of Mauritius is located off the southeastern coast of Africa, boasting a setting so romantic and serene that it’s a true vacationer’s ideal destination. More than 90 miles (145 kilometers) of pristine white-sand beaches circle the island, which is surrounded by the world’s third-largest coral reef. Some of the rarest plants and animals in the world are found on Mauritius, with many, like the extinct dodo bird, being unique to the country.

English and French are widely spoken on the island, while the vast majority of locals speak Mauritian Creole, a pidgin language. Local cuisine presents an exciting mix of European, African and Asian flavors, with fresh seafood at its heart.
