Mauritius Golf Holiday Destinations
While the seafront resorts have everything you could ask for from a luxury escape, the island’s interior is peppered with attractions including the Black River Gorges National Park, whose rainforests and waterfalls are best experienced on an invigorating hike.
The capital of Port Louis exudes the quintessential charm and character of bygone days, particularly its fantastic French colonial mansions. For tourists, the outstanding stretches of sand that border the island are unforgettable, while the relatively recent addition of a number of top quality championship golf courses has made Mauritius a serious option where we’re concerned.
Highly recommended are the Heritage Golf & Spa Resort, the famous Belle Mare Plage, and the ultimate luxury of Shangri-La's Le Touessrok Resort & Spa, all of which are purpose built to ensure the most memorable deluxe long-haul holiday.
