Grand Baie — 4 nights

Wide-open beaches with dazzling blue water and a relaxed coastal atmosphere lure visitors to take a trip to Grand Baie.
Venture out of the city with trips to Les 7 Cascades (in Riviere Noire), Jewish Detainees Museum and Saint Martin Jewish Cemetery (in Bambous) and Flic en Flac Beach (in Flic En Flac). There's still lots to do: take in nature's colorful creations at SSR Botanic Garden, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kaylasson Temple, enjoy the sand and surf at Mont Choisy Beach, and see the interesting displays at Chateau De Labourdonnais.

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.
