Mauritius

Top ways to enter Mauritius

Mauritius Airport: The only international airport on Mauritius is located in Plaisance and is about an hour’s drive away from Port-Louis. It hosts flights to and from many destinations in Africa, Europe, and Asia.

Top cities and places to visit

  • Blue-Bay: Famous as a spot for snorkeling and doing other water sports, Blue-Bay is also where you can sample the delicious Mauritian cuisine, a mixture of French, Indian, and African influences. Locals say that you have to look for the best restaurants outside of the main tourist areas.
  • Port-Louis: The capital of Mauritius is small and cozy. Its art spaces and museums are the best places to learn about the island’s culture and history.
  • Bel Ombre: Home not only to wild beaches, but also impressive mountains, the area around Bel Ombre village is home to Frédérica Nature Reserve.
  • Rivière Noire: Also known as the Black River District, the westernmost part of Mauritius has the scenic Tamarin Falls, as well as unique dunes and gorges.
  • Pereybere: Located on the northern tip of the Mauritius island, Pereybere and its surrounding beaches offer world-class diving opportunities.

Most popular rental car

The most popular rental car in Mauritius is the Hyundai i10, but the Toyota Vitz and the Citroen C1 are also popular.

Crossing Borders

As an island country, Mauritius doesn’t have any neighbors, so there are no land borders to cross.

Most popular types of rental car

The most popular rental car type in Mauritius is an economy, but travelers also tend to pick mini and intermediate.

Top driving routes

Plaisance - Grand Baie (70 km / 43 mi) Mauritius is famous for its beaches, but the route between these two popular tourism destinations will let you explore more of the inland.

Rent a car and do a tour of the north and tour of the south yourself, don't pay for a taxi. North: Mont Choisy beach; Grand Baie beach (and town); Red church. South: Model boat shop in Curepipe; Grand Baisson Temple; Alexandria waterfall; Black River Gorge lookout; Rhumederie Chamarel; 7 sands; Curiousity Chamarel. Don't forget the beaches at Flic en Flac and La Morne. All of these are easily accessible by car.

We traveled all the way around Mauritius coastal roads and inland. Stayed at 4 locations. Fabulous beaches, nature and wildlife very interesting, people were friendly and helpful. Loved our rental car as it provided freedom to explore and get off the Beaton track. (Ebony Forest, Tamarind Falls, Botanical Gardens; dolphin whale watching, Ile aux cerfs) Roads were good particularly if you are a UK driver it’s like driving back home. Very Easy. Mauritius has so much to offer. A jewel in the Indian Ocean.

We were given an automatic Mazda Demio and it was small enough for Mauritian roads and yet as powerful as an SUV, even though it was a hatchback and had run more than 1 lakh km! We thoroughly enjoyed the car and drove it all around Mauritius. We didn't feel the need for the GPS because you can just download offline maps and use them with location on your phone, even without data. However, there was no USB or Aux port in the car and the infotainment system was completely in Japanese. But the views and the navigation kept us busy so we didn't miss music!

The gas mileage was great on the vehicle. We visited port Louis, the 7 earth colors and le monte. Port louis is very busy and the waterfront is nearby and a nice area to visit and shop. The 7 earth is interesting and nice views on the way there. The coastal area is a nice drive to the south with beaches along the way.
