Family Holidays in Mauritius

June 20, 2017

Mauritius is a tropical paradise where everybody finds amazing and beautiful things to do! If you are a person who likes quiet holidays in a luxury hotel, tanning by the pool or on the beach sipping delicious cocktails. Or if you are the adventurous type climbing mountain tops, going on hikes exploring the fauna and flora, Mauritius is the place to be. But did you know that Mauritius is an island that will not only the perfect place for you but also for your entire family?

In Mauritius, there loads of activities to do with your family. The kids and the “bigger Kids’’ will have tones of fun playing, exploring and relaxing together. You’ll have a blast exploring the best spots in Mauritius. But what is really exciting for you to discover is the culture of the Mauritian people; many cultures living together peacefully embracing their differences and rejoicing their similarities. One thing that all Mauritian have in common, although some of them might have very different lifestyles, is the sense of family. Mauritian are big on family values, this is their most precious price. They take care of each other and if you’re welcome in a family they will take care of you as their own flesh and blood.

While visiting the island you may notice that there aren’t too many nursing homes it’s because the elderly are usually taken care of by their children as well as their brothers and sisters. The grandparents take care of their grandchildren. All the grandkids playing together after school, learning together and having special treats made for them by their grandparents. Grandads teaching the boys how to fish while grandmothers show to the little girls their secret recipes.

It might feel like you have traveled back in simpler times but that doesn’t mean that modernity hasn’t reached this paradise yet. It’s just that the island that knows how to hold on to the greatest of its oldest values and provides the best of both worlds for everyone.

When you come to Mauritius with your family not only will you be able to live through exciting experiences such as hikes to exotic places, swim in a clear turquoise lagoon, underwater safari, interact and walk with lions and tigers and lots other cute animals but you’ll also be able to experience the core of family values. Visiting and staying at gorgeous locations is awesome but living through experiences that run deep in each member of your family is transcendent. Sitting down for a meal with a Mauritian family is amazing, your family will be able to taste succulent homemade recipes undoubtedly passed on through generations and will be able to experience firsthand the customs and discover little secrets such as untouched locations in the area not well known by tourists or where to find the best bargains for your souvenirs although the malls in Mauritius offers great recreational activities for kids while adults can enjoy shopping.

If you’re thinking of having a holiday with your family, Mauritius is the ideal location! Come and have fun with the whole family.

    I went to college with someone who grew up in Mauritius, and he had pictures on his wall of the amazing beaches near his home. I’ve wanted to go ever since, and now your pictures make me want to go even more. I love how you describe family life and dynamics there — the whole way of life seems appealing. I’d love to see it in person!

    Oh, so that’s how part of Mauritius looks like. I only know the place because of the infamous “take it take it” metro manila film festival that happened in Manila years ago. Ms. Universe – Mauritius was one of the presentors and was allegedly paid to read the wrong winner. Anyway, the place looks more than a sanctuary. It’s so peaceful and just heavenly.

    I think this is the first time I read about such details on Mauritius! It makes me want to go and visit. I think it is good for that beach chill vacation. I also love that they value family relations just like our culture here in the Philippines.

    Those photos are really tempting and make me wanna pack the bags right away. Mauritius really does look like a paradise and their culture seems also interesting. But those beaches and the color of the sea are amazing. I can’t stop looking at those photos 😀

    You took awesome shots of the place. I love it. Anyway, we, Filipinos, are quite similar to the Mauritians because we also have a strong sense of family. The children take care of their parents when they get old. Also, all the family members get together from time to time so we are also close with our extended family members like our aunt, cousins, and even second cousins. Hoping you could include information on their food as well as photos because it got me curious.
