If you can tear yourself away from the exotic sands for just sometime; Mauritius has a ton of activities, historical sights, and lush forests to offer to its visitors.

Leading the tourist attractions, Port Louis- the bustling capital of Mauritius, boasts of French colonial architecture and offers exciting shopping and entertainment venues. Grand Baie is also the amongst the main tourist attractions. Not to miss the Black River Gorges National Park, which is spread across an area of 16,244 hectares and is the best place to watch rare bird species and fauna. Another interesting spot is Chamarel- a village located in the district of Black River where people can see a dune with seven different colors.
