A good place to start collecting travel information for Mauritius is on the official tourist authority website MTA. Its an informative website. The “What to See” section suggests itineraries, beaches, ecotourism and nature ideas, marine life attractions, and tour and car rental services. Other sections offer advice on accommodations, golf, deep sea fishing excursions, and information on the culture and cuisine.

As with many other agencies in Mauritus, they can be slow to respond to queries via email and may not always have the answers.

Mauritius Island Online features both travel and business information. Helpful information is available regarding the area’s wildlife, places of interest, geography, and climate. You can also learn about Sega (pronounced Saygah), a native dance that originated from the ritual music of Madagascar and mainland Africa, and listen to song samples.

Use the Mauritius-Info website as your guide to sightseeing, for ideas on attractions, beaches, and festivals. There are also links to hotels, restaurants, and transportation options.

If you are interested in learning more about the area, check out the Mauritius Museum Council . Here you can find out about all the local museums, including the Natural History Museum, the Museum of Indian Immigration, the Mauritius Postal Museum, and others.
