Setting sail from Port Louis

The lovely island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean is striking in the contrasts between its mountainous backdrop and beautiful white sand beaches. The capital Port Louis, on the northwest coast, dates back to 1735 and is a busy administrative centre, packed with office workers during the day. Interesting as it is, visitors arriving in Port Louis may well choose to travel immediately to other areas of the island, as it boasts many excellent hotels. Although English is the official language, French is more widely spoken and most Mauritians will also speak Creole in relaxed settings.

Our tip

Look out for dodos! But if you can’t find a live one, at least there is a full skeleton in the natural history museum.
