Mauritius in 3 days

Day 1: If you go to an island paradise, well, you should go to an island paradise. Mont Choisy's curvy, sweeping white sand beaches low on watersports and fishermen make it the best beach to relax. Move up one beach to Trou aux Biches for some of the best scuba diving and snorkeling in the world. End the day in Grand Baie for the Tamil Surya Oudaya Sangam Temple, some of the island's best shopping, and the best nightclub around: The Banana Beach Club

Day 2: On day two take a trip to the hills in the south of the island for some absolutely breathtaking scenery. You'll get it by walking up the natural stairs at the 100 m tall Chamarel Waterfall. From there head on to the island's most popular destination: Seven Coloured Earth. The volcanic rock here is rich in iron and aluminium and gives a uniquely emblematic blue and red hue to the sand dunes.

Day 3: Explore the City of Port Louis on day three for a fascinating look into the island's colonial past. The Saint James Cathedral, Port Louis Theater, and Government House are three highlights. Grab a snack and a souvenir at the Central Market and close the day out with a craft beer and a tasty Creole dinner at Lambic.

Mauritius in august

August falls in the Mauritius winter months and so even if it's not scalding hot you'll be sure to find some fine weather. Expect daytime highs of 24°C with the odd day pushing 28°C. With six days of rain you might find paradise temporarily interrupted but the 8 hours of daily sunshine almost guarantee you a great day at the beach on a three day stay.

In August you'll find the aptly named Kiteival, the island's five day kite surfing festival which attracts some of the top talent in the world. The Hindu festival of Ganesha Chaturthi also falls in August and you won't want to miss the folk dancing and traditional dishes like moluk, a rice flour dumpling stuffed with coconut or dried fruit.
