1 week in Mauritius: Epic 7-8 day Itinerary (First Time Visit)


1 Week in Mauritius: The Perfect 7-8 Day Itinerary

Planning a one-week trip to Mauritius?

7 days in Mauritius is perfect to thoroughly explore everything this destination has to offer.

To help you prepare, I’ll detail here the ideal itinerary for an excellent stay.

Of course, you’re not obliged to follow this to the letter, but this is a great foundation to simplify your holiday planning and ensure you don’t miss anything on this paradise island!

Spending one week in Mauritius gives you ample time to discover all the must-see places and to enjoy the pristine sandy beaches.

From the magnificent beaches of the North to the Black River Gorges National Park, the Morne mountain, the natural wonders of Chamarel, and the tranquil town of Mahébourg: a fantastic journey awaits you!

Just think about the amazing week that awaits you and let me guide you!

Step 1: North of Mauritius (2 days)

Day 1 – Grand Bay and the Northern Beaches

Finally, the long-awaited day has arrived, and you’re stepping foot on the island!

To make it easier to move from one place to another, I strongly advise you to rent a car locally. Having a car to visit Mauritius is almost essential and will make your stay much more enjoyable.

Sure, the country is quite well served by public transport, but the journey times are often huge. A car will save you the wait and will allow you to save a considerable amount of time to make the most of your trip.

It’s usually best to go through a comparison site. I personally use Booking.com Cars, there’s no better service in my opinion.

By using Booking Cars you can:

  • Easily compare all car rental offers in Mauritius, sorted by price or type of vehicle
  • Benefit from comprehensive insurance protection, for a 100% stress-free holiday!
  • Get a quick refund in case of an incident
  • Cancel your reservation for free right up to the last minute.

Once you’re all set behind the wheel, head straight to the north of the island.

Why start with the North coast? Because it’s arguably the most attractive part of the country, one of the most lively and a great way to acclimate right from the start.

For many, Mauritius is about the tropical climate, coconut trees, turquoise waters, and soft sand underfoot.

And you’re about to see that for yourself! In this region, you’ll find the most beautiful beaches on the island and you’ll feel completely transported from the first day of your visit.

Cap Malheureux, Pereybere, Grand Bay, or the beaches of Mont Choisy and Trou aux Biches a little further… So many heavenly places to start off your one-week stay in Mauritius in the best way possible.

Cap Malheureux Mauritius
The church at Cap Malheureux beach

Without a doubt, the must-see of the North coast is Grand Bay.

This former fishing village turned into a beach resort is the favorite destination of expatriates and the hub of the region.

The coastal town of Grand Bay has a charm of its own: the place is very lively, especially in the evening, and its beach with colorful boats is unmatched elsewhere.

The street vendors along the beach add to its attractiveness and make it such a vibrant spot.

For foodies, I highly recommend the guided gastronomic tour of Grand Bay. A unique “food tour” on the island to taste Mauritian specialties while discovering the most beautiful parts of the city off the beaten track.

Grand Bay and its surroundings are as pleasant during the day as they are in the evening. You can definitely spend the whole day there, and end on a tasty note with a dinner by the sea.

I can’t recommend the restaurant Les Canisses enough for a delicious meal facing the lagoon.

With everything that the North coast has to offer, your first of 7 days in Mauritius will be jam-packed!

My Advice

To prepare your day in the north of Mauritius, I invite you to read my dedicated article: What to do in Grand Bay and its surroundings?

Day 2 – Port-Louis and Pamplemousses Botanical Garden

How can you visit a country without seeing its capital? It’s impossible to spend a week in Mauritius without experiencing Port-Louis!

After a day relaxing on the beach while still a bit tired from the journey, following up with a visit to the capital is a great idea to continue your trip.

Port-Louis is not only the cultural and historical center of Mauritius but it’s also a city brimming with life!

My Advice

If the second day of your trip falls on a Sunday, you should consider rescheduling your day in Port-Louis as the city is very quiet on this day of the week and you would miss out on the usual hustle and bustle which is so distinctive.

Your visit to the capital will allow you to learn more about Mauritius’ colonial background. For that, you should definitely stop by several key sites:

La Place d’Armes to start with.

It’s located at the entrance of the city, opposite the Government Palace. There, you’ll find a statue erected at the center of Mahé Labourdonnais, a French governor and the founder of the city in 1735.

Fort Adélaïde, also known as the Citadel of Port-Louis, is another monument worth seeing in Port-Louis. You’ll find it overlooking the city.

This building was constructed by the British in 1834 as a base for cannon fire against the French army.

Also make sure to visit the Central Market, a large covered market that is full of exotic fruits, vegetables, and spices.

The Caudan Waterfront, the oldest shopping center in Mauritius, is also worth a visit. Built on the waterfront, it’s an ideal spot for a shopping break and a taste of local flavors.

A museum is often the best way to learn more about a country. The Blue Penny Museum, located at the entrance to Caudan, promises a very interesting and educational visit about the art and political history of Mauritius.

There’s also a super cool thing to do in Port-Louis, which is the guided tour that combines history, culture, and street-food. In my opinion, it’s the best way to discover the authentic Port-Louis.

This tour is in high demand, so you should book it now to secure your spot by clicking below:

Caudan Waterfront Port-Louis
Caudan Waterfront – Port-Louis

Allocate 2 hours afterwards to visit the Pamplemousses Botanical Garden!

Not far from Port-Louis (about 20 minutes by car), it’s an unmissable visit during your 7 days in Mauritius.

The garden spans over 37 hectares and is filled with several hundred species of plants from all corners of the world.

You might also catch a glimpse of the tropical wildlife with geckos, chameleons, fruit bats, and colorful birds hopping around in the branches!

It’s a place where I myself love to take a stroll, and find it very refreshing for both body and spirit.

My Advice

If you really don’t want to miss anything from your day in Port-Louis and the Pamplemousses Garden, you can opt for a guided tour.

Your guide-driver will pick you up directly from your hotel and take you to the highlights of the capital then to Pamplemousses Garden, and finish off with a tour of the beach.

Best Hotels in the North of Mauritius

My Advice

During your one-week stay in Mauritius, you have 2 accommodation options:

  • You can change lodgings at each stage, to fully enjoy each region and minimize travel time
  • Or you can choose to stay at the same accommodation throughout your stay since the island is small (or change hotels only once or twice).

The advantage of staying in the North is being close to the most beautiful beaches on the island, in a vibrant and lively area with many restaurants and shops.

If you’re looking for accommodation in the North of Mauritius, here are the places I recommend:

  • Cosi Dolce: a villa with a swimming pool in Peyrébère, 700m from the beach, with a fully-equipped kitchen and a large terrace where breakfast is served each morning. There’s also a bar, a garden, and a private outdoor pool. Very friendly staff and an ideal location. From 80€ per night for a 5-person welcome (2 bedrooms with 2 double beds and a spare bed).
  • Bleu de Toi Boutique Guesthouse: a charming guesthouse just a 5-minute walk from the beach, run by warm hosts. Double rooms and studios with elegant and fresh decor. Enjoy the garden, covered terrace, and swimming pool. Expect to pay at least 150€ per night for 2 people.
  • Ocean V Hotel: a 4-star hotel in Peyrébère, 50m from the beach. It features an infinity pool, a gym, a jacuzzi, and a restaurant. Stay in a comfortable double room starting at 150€ per night, breakfast included.
  • Sakoa Boutik Hotel: a superb small hotel in Trou-aux-Biches, situated right on the beach in a dreamlike setting. White sandy beach and pool, bar, restaurant, and spa. Attentive staff and comfortable rooms. Double room from 230€ per night. I definitely recommend it for a high-end stay in Mauritius.
  • LUX* Grand Baie Resort & Residences: this is THE holiday hotel in the north, as luxurious as you can get, perfect for those who want to go all out! Double room from 450€ per night (breakfast extra at 25€).
My Advice

Then you should include some exciting tours and activities!

Step 2: The East Coast of Mauritius (1 Day)

Day 3 – Bellemare and Île aux Cerfs

Let’s start the third day!

I know, it’s been 24 hours since you haven’t been to the beach and you already miss it. It’s normal, but don’t worry, we’re heading right back!

Hit the road towards the East coast and the legendary Bellemare beach.

It’s not just an iconic spot for tourists but also for Mauritians who love to picnic here on weekends.

This beach will wow you too. Lying on the white sand, under the shade of coconut trees, you will feel truly peaceful and far from home.

Its clear and shallow waters are perfect for snorkeling and are equally inviting for a relaxing swim.

If this getaway has stirred your desire for tropical beaches, take a look at Palmar beach, wilder and just 5 minutes away by car.

Bellemare Beach – Mauritius

A bit further on, you’ll reach the charming village of Trou d’Eau Douce.

From there, you’ll be able to proceed to the second major highlight of your day: Île aux Cerfs.

It’s an essential visit during a week-long trip in Mauritius!

There are boat shuttles to Île aux Cerfs from Trou d’Eau Douce beach or pier, with departures every 20 to 30 minutes.

Just crossing the lagoon is beautiful!

Once on the small island, you’ll find plenty to do. The setting is already magical with white sand and an endless expanse of turquoise ocean before your eyes.

It’s obviously a very popular spot for vacationers, so don’t expect to find yourself on a deserted island.

Île aux Cerfs isn’t inhabited but is fully dedicated to tourism.

It offers numerous activities: water sports (towed tubing, parasailing, water skiing…), golf courses, and some shops.

There are also various restaurants for lunch or dinner in a wonderful setting.

However, if you’re in search of quietness, you’ll have no trouble finding a nice spot away from the crowds to relax on the beach.

My Advice

I highly recommend choosing this full-day excursion that takes you around Île aux Cerfs and also includes a visit to the Grande-Rivière-Sud-Est waterfalls. Besides, the excursion includes meals and drinks.

Book it now by clicking below:

Best Hotels on the East Coast of Mauritius

If you’re seeking peace and quiet, the East Coast is the perfect place to stay in Mauritius. It’s one of the most tranquil and unspoiled regions on the island.

Here are my accommodation picks for the East:

  • EvaZion: Located in Grande Rivière Sud-Est, in a quiet natural setting, 20 minutes from Bellemare Beach. Comfortable double rooms with sleek decor from €80/night. Outdoor pool, restaurant, kayaks available, and direct shuttle to Île aux Cerfs. Extremely welcoming staff and tranquil surroundings.
  • Otentic Eco Tent Experience: Have an incredible time sleeping in a comfortable tent in the great outdoors, nestled between the river and the ocean, luxury camping style. Tents suitable for 2 to 5 people starting at €130 per night. Loads of on-site activities, pool, and a delicious restaurant featuring local products. This is definitely my top pick for a rejuvenating stay on the East coast of Mauritius!
  • Veranda Palmar Beach Hotel: A beautiful hotel set by the lagoon in Bellemare. Bright, spacious, and cozy double rooms with balcony from €175/night, meals included. Access to the beach, pool, and spa.

Stage 3: The West / South-West of Mauritius (3 days)

Day 4 – Flic-en-Flac and Black River Gorges National Park

Now that you’re familiar with the North and the East of Mauritius, let’s take a little trip to the West coast, which is just as enchanting as the rest of the island.

To kick off this new stage of your 7 days in Mauritius, head to Flic-en-Flac and its 8 km of white sand.

It’s one of the most popular beaches in the country, distinguished by its border of Filao trees, the Mauritian pines.

In addition to creating a beautiful landscape, they provide the perfect shade to relax while gazing at the stunning turquoise lagoon. Sounds like a dream, right?

Like most of Mauritius’ beaches, there’s something for everyone: whether it’s swimming, sunbathing on the sand, or snorkeling to see the colorful fish.

Around the beach, you will also find numerous scuba diving centers.

If you’re looking for this type of activity, you should book a diving session in Tamarin Bay, to discover the beauty of the underwater world with a fantastic team!

To book your diving session near Flic-en-Flac, just click here:

Flic en Flac beach
The beach of Flic en Flac

My Advice

On Flic-en-Flac Beach, there are several food trucks offering snacks and fruit. You should really stop by the one named Roti Aka to try their faratas (also known as rotis).

It’s a Mauritian specialty resembling an Indian naan, stuffed with various curries and sauces. You’ll find them all over the island, but if you ask me, the best ones are at Flic-en-Flac. A must-try!

For the second part of the day, there’s an amazing national park just 15 km away: Black River Gorges National Park.

A massive nature reserve within the tropical forest, you’ll discover the island’s wide variety of fauna and flora (home to more than 300 species of plants and 9 species of endemic birds!).

On the agenda: waterfalls, river crossings, and numerous viewpoints overlooking the coast and the ocean.

The park is quite sprawling and it’s not easy for first-timers to navigate without missing anything. For this reason, I suggest booking this guided tour to enjoy the best experience possible.

Best Hotels Near Flic-en-Flac, in the West of Mauritius

  • Lariad BnB: A welcoming residence conveniently located just a 5-minute walk from Flic-en-Flac beach. Enjoy a comfortable double room from 50€ a night, breakfast included.

That’s a full day indeed! If you still have some energy left after all that climbing in the park, why not spend the evening in Flic-en-Flac?

The vibrant seaside resort is packed with trendy restaurants and nightclubs.

Day 5 – Le Morne Brabant

Time for a bit more nature walking!

Trekking in the Black River Gorges National Park was just a taste of what’s to come the following day: a great hike at Morne Brabant.

There’s nothing like it to recharge and immerse yourself in the Mauritian natural heritage!

Located in the southwest, it’s the most famous mountain on the island, and for good reason! It has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2008.

Climbing Morne Brabant is by far my favorite hike to do in Mauritius. Count on approximately 3 to 4 hours to reach the summit and come back down.

The trails can be quite steep at times, and towards the end, you’re pretty close to climbing. The hike remains very pleasant, but be cautious if you suffer from vertigo.

For maximum safety and especially to learn everything about the history of the region, it’s a good idea to hire a professional guide who will accompany you during the climb.

I actually have one I can recommend! You just need to click below to book your guided tour of Morne Brabant (it’s very popular, so I recommend you book without delay):

The panorama at the top of the mountain is a breathtaking reward, literally taking your breath away.

Morne Brabant
Le Morne Brabant

My Advice

It’s important to know that Morne Brabant holds high historical and emotional value.

The stone cross erected at the very top of the mountain was installed in tribute to the slaves who, back then, jumped from the summit to escape their captors.

At the foot of the mountain, there is also a commemorative monument called “The Unknown Slave.”

Once back on solid ground, treat yourself to a few well-deserved hours of relaxation on Le Morne Beach.

Located at the foot of the mountain, it’s another heavenly beach to add to your vacation diary.

This one is wilder and quieter than the ones in the north or Flic-en-Flac.

A peaceful moment of tranquility away from it all, in communion with the ocean and with a spectacular landscape as a bonus.

Then head back to your hotel for the night.

Day 6 – Southwest Road Trip: Grand Bassin and Chamarel

Get ready for the 6th and penultimate day of your vacation!

I suggest you continue exploring the southwest of Mauritius, an exceptionally rich region.

And what better than a little road trip to tour it all in one day?

Having explored this part of the island by car, I am offering you my optimized itinerary so you won’t miss out on anything:

1) Start early in the morning heading towards Grand Bassin (also known as “Ganga Talao”).

It’s a very important cultural site in the country. Indeed, this sacred lake is a pilgrimage site for the Hindu Mauritians.

It’s always an experience to be there, especially at the sight of the two enormous statues of the gods Shiva and Durga, which are very impressive and stand at the entrance of the site.

Fun fact: the statue of Durga is the tallest statue of the goddess in the world!

At Grand Bassin, you can visit several temples, have a “tika” put on your forehead, and even mingle with the little wild monkeys that add to the charm of the site.

(Just be careful, some of them are quite cheeky, so keep an eye on your belongings! 😀 )

Grand Bassin Mauritius

2) For the second stage, head to the south to find yourself in a place called Plaine Champagne.

This is where the locals come to pick Chinese guavas at the end of the year, these delicious little wild fruits with a sweet-sour taste. If you’re visiting during the guava season, you can even pick them yourself by stopping on the side of the road.

A bit further along the main road, you’ll find Alexandra Falls, which is definitely worth a stop!

3) By midday or early afternoon, make your way to the Seven Coloured Earths of Chamarel.

It’s THE natural wonder of the island, wildly popular with visitors. It’s an area covered with multicolored volcanic soil, hence its charming name.

The site is located within a private estate, so there’s an entrance fee. But if you’re staying in Mauritius for a week, it’s an absolute must-see.

Seven Coloured Earths – Chamarel

4) On the same private estate, you’ll also find the Ebony Forest Reserve, which I highly recommend as well. This is a roughly 2-hour walk in an indigenous forest that offers a fantastic panorama of the valley from Sublime Point.

5) And for the final stage of your road trip, why not visit the Chamarel Rhumerie, where you can enjoy a guided tour before sampling various spirits.

Believe me, this will be the best rum you’ll ever taste!

My Advice

To ensure that this day of sightseeing flows smoothly and fits into your schedule, I advise you once again to go with a guide.

The guided tour is incredibly well-organized and spares you the worry of navigating the roads.

You can book it with a simple click of the button below:

Chamarel Waterfall Mauritius
The Chamarel Waterfall, Mauritius
My Advice

If you have the time, I strongly recommend a visit to “Curious Corner” of Chamarel.

It’s a small museum dedicated to optical illusions, and it’s really well put together!

You’ll find it just beside the entrance to the Seven Coloured Earths.

I’ve been there several times and I love it!

If you’re with kids, it’s a family activity in Mauritius not to be missed.

Best Hotels Near Le Morne and Chamarel (Southwest)

The Southwest is one of the most touristic regions on the island, and accommodations tend to fill up quickly. If you already have your travel dates, you should book now.

Here is my selection of the best hotels in the region:

  • Résidence au Bout du Morne: a family-run guesthouse by the sea, 1km from La Prairie beach. Spacious, modern, and well-decorated rooms with a large double bed and a balcony.

Step 4: The Southeast Coast (1 day)

Day 7 – Mahébourg and Blue Bay

Here we are… It went by so fast, you saw so much, yet it feels like you arrived just yesterday.

That’s the problem with dream vacations!

So, there’s no other choice but to wrap up your 7 days in Mauritius beautifully!

For this final day, I recommend two places to visit: Mahébourg and Blue Bay.

We’re heading to the Southeast coast this time.

Mahébourg was the very first city built on the island by the Dutch colonists.

I believe every Mauritian will tell you: Mahébourg is the city you absolutely must not miss during a week-long stay in Mauritius.

It has a very different atmosphere from the rest of the island, more unique, somewhat timeless. It’s truly a great place to feel transported and surrounded by Mauritian culture.

I myself sometimes go there when I need to recharge and get away from everyday life. It’s very pleasant, and time seems to slow down.

Take a moment to sit on the waterfront, which is genuinely worth seeing.

Afterward, you can stroll through the cobbled streets to admire the old Creole houses and soak up the very “roots” vibe of this town.

Then, head out to Blue Bay, the neighboring village.

The beaches there are stunning, especially Pointe d’Esny. It’s personally my favorite beach on the entire island.

The most incredible thing about spending a 7-day vacation in Mauritius is that no matter how many beaches you visit, each one manages to take your breath away every time!

Blue Bay’s lagoon, crystal clear and rich in colorful fish, is particularly well-suited for snorkeling.

You can engage in this activity on your own or be accompanied to the best spots.

This glass-bottom boat excursion with several snorkeling stops is really cool and even includes meals and drinks.

Travel Insurance for Mauritius: My Advice

My Advice

Many travelers mistakenly believe that healthcare in Mauritius is affordable and that they don’t need travel insurance. But in reality, the public healthcare system is fragile, and even a simple consultation at a private clinic can be very expensive!

That’s why it is essential to take out travel insurance with good medical coverage before your trip.

To ensure your safety, I recommend the following two insurance options (both include epidemic coverage – such as for Covid-19 -, which is very important!)

To sign up, it’s very simple, just click on the links below:
