You can also head inland to take a jungle tour.

There’s a beautiful Maheswarnath Hindu temple in the village of Triolet, and if you’re travelling with kids, take a day trip to see the animals at the Vanille Réserve des Mascareignes. The village of Flacq has a terrific food market, perfect for lunch on the go. And be sure to try Mauritian cuisine—it’s a delicious mix of Indian, French, and African influences.

Mauritius isn’t big, but there’s so much to explore. So why not get a longer term car rental, extend your vacation, and discover more? You can even pick up your car at Mauritius Airport and drop it off at a different location. Start planning your adventure now!
