La Gaulette

— 3 nights
Protruding out towards the ocean and nestled among the mangrove tress, a holiday to La Gaulette strikes a balance traditional fishing village and a tourist-friendly surfing spot.
Take a break from La Gaulette with a short trip to La Vanille Nature Park in Riviere des Anguilles, about 56 minutes away. Spend the 26th (Sat) exploring nature at Black River Gorges National Park. There's much more to do: get a new perspective on things with Dolphin Warrior, take in the dramatic scenery at Chamarel Waterfall, make a trip to Chamarel’s Seven Coloured Earth Geopark, and browse for treasures at Le Dernier Comptoir.

Island of Rainbows and Shooting Stars
A small but surprisingly multicultural island in the Indian Ocean, Mauritius sits just east of Madagascar and offers a white-sand coastline lapped by sapphire waters. The contrasts of colors, tastes, and cultures here makes a vacation in Mauritius richly rewarding, with plenty to do along the coast and deeper inland. A tour of Mauritius usually includes long stops at the island's beaches, which serve as launching points for deep-sea fishing trips, dolphin-watching excursions, and scuba diving adventures. Farther away from the water, you can discover a paradise for hikers and nature lovers. Mauritius is made for explorations on foot, with several volcanic summits and a large national park sheltering abundant species of indigenous plants and birds.
