2 Weeks in Mauritius: Which Itinerary for 14, 15 or 16 Days?

You want to spend 2 weeks in Mauritius and you’re looking for the best Itinerary?

You’re at the right place!

In order to help you plan your stay, I have prepared this recommended Itinerary for 14, 15 or 16 days in Mauritius.

With its picture-postcard scenery, Mauritius is going to blow your mind. During your trip, you will enjoy on the beaches of Belle Mare and Peyrebère and water activities on the Flic en Flac coast.

You will also discover the capital Port Louis, climb up the Morne Brabant mountain, go on a trip to Rodrigues Island.… And a lot more!

For this itinerary, in addition to the best things to do and must-see attractions, I will also give you all my best tips as well as my list of the best accommodations depending on your budget.

So, what are the best things to do in Mauritius in 2 weeks? Where to stay?

Let’s find out!

1) South of Mauritius – Mahébourg / Vallée de Ferney / Le Morne / Chamarel (3 days)

I suggest kicking off your two-week tour in Mauritius with an exploration of the southern part of the island.

This region is where you’ll touch down on your arrival day, at the Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport near Mahébourg.

The south of Mauritius is one of the most unspoiled areas of the island, with many pristine natural spaces. Get ready to explore breathtaking forests, majestic mountains, picturesque valleys, and of course, gorgeous beaches and the crystal-clear sea.

To start off on a relaxed note, after you’ve dropped off your luggage, stay in the southeast and spend your first day in the Mahébourg region.

Kick off this 15-day journey with a little tour around Mahébourg, the iconic town of South Mauritius. It’s worth noting, Mahébourg is the first town built on the island and its former capital.

The charming little coastal town of Mahébourg, laden with history, is welcoming and perfect for experiencing the daily life of Mauritians.

I was charmed by the quaint Creole houses, the authentic shops, the waterfront, and the picturesque alleys.

During your visit, make sure to swing by the Rault Biscuit Factory, famous for their traditional Mauritian manioc biscuits. The covered market is also quite appealing, brimming with local fruits, vegetables, and spices to discover.

Next, head over to Blue Bay, just a few kilometers away, to round off the day on the beach, relaxing and swimming. Why not also opt for a glass-bottom boat tour where you can observe the sea bed under your feet?

Tickets for the boat tour need to be booked by clicking here.

If you’ve got the time, I also recommend the boat excursion to Aigrettes Island, a bird sanctuary that’s well worth a visit (departure is from Pointe Jérôme).

To book a sunset cruise, click on the following button:

For your second day in Mauritius, I propose you continue exploring the southeast by spending the morning in Ferney Valley. This excursion is one of the must-do’s during a 2-week stay in Mauritius.

Ferney Valley, a few kilometers north of Mahébourg, is a nature reserve of over 200 hectares comprised of tropical forest and rolling meadows. It’s incredibly beautiful!

Entrance is around 8 euros (325 rs) and you’ll easily spend 2 to 3 hours walking leisurely while enjoying the numerous panoramas of Mahébourg bay.

You also have the option to go on a 4×4 ride, allowing you to delve a bit deeper into the valley. One last thing, be sure to bring good walking shoes, protection from the sun, and mosquito repellent (it’s really essential).

Voyage Tips - Advice

The access to Ferney Valley reserve is from the old Ferney sugar mill, between the towns of Mahébourg and Vieux Grand Port. If you didn’t rent a car, you’ll need to take a taxi from Mahébourg to get there.

Before taking the shuttle to the start of the hiking trail, don’t miss out on visiting the tiny coffee museum located near the reception.

Vallée de Ferney
Vallée de Ferney

In the late morning, set off on your journey towards the scenic southwest coast.

The remaining part of your itinerary awaits in the captivating region of Morne Brabant. If you’re traveling by bus, expect the journey to take approximately 2.5 to 3 hours (compared to around 1 hour by car).

By bus, you need to:

  1. Take the first bus from Mahébourg to Souillac
  2. A second bus from Souillac to Baie du Cap
  3. And the third bus from Baie du Cap to Morne Brabant.

To plan your bus routes, visit this website.

Le Morne Brabant is one of the most iconic mountains on the island, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, situated right on the coast. It’s situated right at the water’s edge, offering a stunning beachfront view.

I suggest you spend the rest of the day on Morne Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in Mauritius. It’s very quiet during the week, but much busier on weekends (like almost all beaches in Mauritius).

On the agenda: relaxing on the sun-kissed sand while soaking in the breathtaking scenery, taking a refreshing dip in the Indian Ocean, engaging in thrilling water sports, and exploring the area with a leisurely stroll if you fancy.

Bright and early the next morning, I recommend tackling the climb of Le Morne Brabant Mountain.

You can hike it on your own, but I advise you to hire a guide. They’re really friendly and will teach you a lot about the region!

They’ll also help you navigate and ensure your safety, as the trails are steep in some places.

To book this hike with a guide, simply click on the following button:

The climb of the last few meters to the summit is quite perilous, I do not recommend it for children or those with vertigo. If you’re lucky enough to reach Morne Brabant’s summit, the view up there is breathtaking The colors are splendid and it’s simply magical!

This is indeed one of the excursions I enjoyed the most during my 2-week holiday in Mauritius. The complete hike will take you about 3 to 4 hours (6 km round trip).

Voyage Tips - Advice
If you plan to take the guided tour for the climb of Morne Brabant (which I recommend), be sure to book in advance.

For your third day on the island, this time I suggest you head to Chamarel, close to Morne Brabant, just a few minutes by bus or taxi from the beach.

Chamarel is one of the most touristy sites on the island as it’s home to one of Mauritius’s main natural wonders: the Seven Colored Earths.

Just a heads up, there is an admission fee for entry. To make things easier, you can get your tickets in advance by clicking here.

Upon arrival, take the dirt road leading to the Chamarel Waterfall. You’ll discover a lovely viewpoint overlooking the waterfall below. If you’re up for it, you can go down to get a closer look and even take a dip.

Then, follow the path and you’ll come upon a large clearing, and that’s where the site’s main attraction is. Get ready to be mesmerized by a one-of-a-kind landscape featuring vibrant ochre dunes.

The colors will astound you as they transition from burnt orange to violet, with stunning shades of yellow and brown in between. This natural color gradient is a real spectacle.

A few years ago, you could walk on the seven Colored Earth and even grab a sample. However, for the sake of preserving the site, access is now prohibited.

I reckon it’s a good thing. With all the tourists coming in, there wouldn’t be much of the seven Colored Earth left today! Allow about 1 hours for the visit.

Still in Chamarel, as you exit the site, you’ll have a chance to visit the rum distillery or “Rhumerie de Chamarel”. Here, they’ll explain how they make local rum and you’ll even get a tasting session.

The Rhumerie also features a restaurant and a shop.

Just next to Chamarel’s entrance, you’ll also spot the Curious Corner the optical illusion museum.

At first glance, it might not seem like your cup of tea, but I promise you, it’s really surprising, fun, and interactive. The visit lasts about 1.5 hours and it’s suitable for all ages. An excellent way to end the morning on a high note.

After lunch in one of Chamarel village’s quaint little restaurants, I suggest spending the afternoon hiking in the Black River Gorges National Park, just a few minutes away by car or bus west of Chamarel.

It’s the island’s largest natural park spanning a whopping 6,754 hectares.

On the agenda: a captivating excursion that will take you through the tropical forest, where you’ll encounter a myriad of lush vegetation, fascinating wildlife, winding rivers, and enchanting waterfalls.

You should discover the place with a guide so you won’t lose your way and learn everything there is about the park’s history, local plants, and endemic animals you’ll see during the hike (including the famous Pink Pigeon!)

Book your guided hike in the park by clicking the following button:

The guided hike will take about 4 hours. If you prefer to go on your own, make sure to set landmarks and plan your route in advance because there are lots of different trails.

2) the west coast – Flic en Flac / Tamarin (2 days)

The second stop on this 2-week itinerary in Mauritius takes you over to the west coast of the island for 2 days.

Your first destination is Flic-en-Flac, the tourist town of the West, boasting a large, beautiful white sandy beach lined with many casuarina trees.

On your Flic-en-Flac day agenda:

  • Sunbathing on the white sand or chilling under the casuarinas
  • Swimming and snorkeling to check out the vibrant fish (you can see them really close to the shore)
  • Tasting snacks and fresh fruits sold by beach vendors (I recommend: the excellent “Roti Aka” located at the start of the beach, among the first food trucks).
  • Scuba diving with one of the city’s diving clubs (I suggest booking ahead, it’s always better)
  • Boat trip

Voyage Tips - Advice

For lunch, treat yourself to a Roti Aka from the food truck of the same name located at the start of the beach (on the right when facing the sea).

It’s the typical local snack you can eat on the go just about anywhere on the island. It’s sort of a stuffed pancake with your choice of different curries, and those from Roti Aka in Flic en Flac are among the best.

Flic en Flac Beach

The following day, stay in the west and head to Tamarin Falls, also known as the Seven Cascades hike, one of the prettiest walks on the island. The site is completely public and thus free.

You can choose between a 3-hour walk, with the route covering the first 4 cascades, and the full tour which will easily take you the whole day. I suggest dedicating the entire day to the hike, as there’s so much to see and the point is to relax, take in the stunning landscapes, and not rush around.

Your day’s agenda:

  • Discovering the waterfalls and the site’s stunning natural landscapes
  • Swimming in the invigorating waters of the cascades
  • Having a picnic in the shade of the trees
  • Observing the local fauna and flora

You can choose to do the hike on your own or with a guide.

Voyage Tips - Advice
I advise against doing this hike if it’s rainy, the paths get really slippery in the rain and you won’t really enjoy the walk.

3) The northwest: Port Louis / Pamplemousses (1 day)

Embarking on the third leg of this 14-15 day road trip in Mauritius, set off to explore the capital, Port Louis, nestled in the northwest of the island. Swapping natural landscapes and paradise-like beaches for the heart of the bustling local day-to-day life, you’ll find yourself in Port Louis for a half-day visit in the morning.

Things to do and see in Port Louis:

  • Check out the covered market on Queen Street, brimming with countless stalls offering fruits, vegetables, spices, and other local products. You can also indulge in snacks and buy souvenirs here (don’t hesitate to haggle for a good deal!).
  • Make sure you visit The Caudan Waterfront, an outdoor shopping centre set on the waterfront, the oldest one in Mauritius. The place is delightful, with pretty walkways, shops, restaurants, and food stalls by local vendors. Definitely swing by Patrick and Rosie Latulipe’s stall, which sells products exclusively made from cassava. It stole my heart, and I wholeheartedly recommend giving it a try! There are also sea views, a cinema, and even a museum (the Blue Penny, highly informative about the history of Mauritius). On weekends, the place buzzes with life, often hosting musical performances in the evening.

Voyage Tips - Advice

To discover the culinary specialties of Mauritius, I recommend you book a guided street food tour in Port Louis.

You’ll get a chance to visit the market and of course, to savour the local cuisine. Find all the details about this activity by clicking here:

If you’re driving, park directly at the Caudan parking lot upon arriving in Port Louis. It’s the simplest option, and everything else is easily accessible on foot.

Port Louis Caudan Waterfront

After enjoying a waterside lunch at the Caudan, catch a bus, hop in your car or take a taxi to the Pamplemousses Botanic Garden a mere 20 minutes away from Port Louis. It’s original name is “Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam Botanical Garden” but we’ll keep on calling it Pamplemousses!

This 37-hectare botanical garden was established in the 18th century by a French botanist. It houses a rich collection of plants, not only local but also from many countries around the world.
Admission fee: 8 euros per adult, 5 euros per child.

A walk in the garden is refreshing and pleasant, especially after spending the morning in the sweltering heat of Port Louis. The paths are well laid out, and you’ll get to discover some impressive plants such as the enormous baobabs, giant water lilies, palms of all sizes and shapes, aromatic plants, tropical fruit trees…

You can explore independently or take a guided tour. The guides are incredibly friendly and quite chatty!

If you’re looking for a peaceful stroll amongst the flora, opt for the self-guided tour as the guides’ explanations do require quite a bit of focus.

On the contrary, if you’re keen to learn as much as possible about the garden’s history and its collection, the guided tour is very comprehensive and will take you 1 to 2 hours.

Voyage Tips - Advice

To visit the north of Mauritius and the botanical garden, you can also opt for a private full-day tour.

Your driver guide will pick you up directly from your hotel and will take you to the Pamplemousses Garden, Port Louis, and even to the beach. You can book below:

4) The north – Grand Baie / Peyrebere / Trou-aux-Biches / Cap Malheureux (2 days)

Almost a week into your Mauritian stay, it’s time to move on to the fourth stage of the trip! You’re now going to explore the northern part of the island.

Set off in the morning towards Grand Baie. If you’re taking the bus, it’s an easy 20-minute ride from Port Louis via an express bus from the bus station.

Once you reach Grand Baie, the island’s first seaside resort, you’ll immediately be immersed in a relaxed, summery, and lively vibe. Grand Bay is a popular tourist coastal town, featuring a beautiful public beach, stunning villas, numerous street vendors, restaurants, bars, clubs, and a shopping avenue (Sunset Boulevard).

After spending the morning in Grand Baie, hit the road again to discover the beach of Pereybere, just 10 kilometers away. This pretty little beach promises a relaxing afternoon filled with rest, sunbathing, swimming, and water activities. I highly recommend staying for the sunset, as it provides a breathtaking finale to the day. Whether you choose to admire it from the sea or while relaxing on the warm sand, it’s a magical moment you won’t want to miss.

The next morning, I recommend discovering another of Mauritius’s most beautiful beaches (after all, that’s what you’re here for!), Trou aux Biches, on the northwest coast. The atmosphere here is very tranquil, and the scenery is postcard-perfect with its palm trees, bougainvilleas, white sand, and crystal-clear waters.

Your day at Trou aux Biches includes:

  • Chilling out on the warm sand
  • Doing some snorkeling and/or diving in the lagoon along the coral reef
  • Having a picnic on the beach
  • Partaking in water sports offered by nearby hotels: sailing, water skiing, parasailing
  • Sampling Mauritian flambéed bananas (delicious!)

In the mid-afternoon, continue your journey to Cap Malheureux, at the northernmost tip of the island.

The beach at Cap Malheureux is unmistakable thanks to its red church, creating a stunning contrast with the surrounding green vegetation and the azure blue of the ocean.

This small beach and its church are, in my opinion, one of the most charming and authentic places in Mauritius. It’s usually very quiet and peaceful, hardly ever crowded, and you can relax there while admiring the sunset.

If you have some extra time, I highly recommend taking a boat trip to Ile Plate, which can be spotted on the horizon from Cap Malheureux beach.

5) The Tea Route (1 day)

And here we are, already at the fifth stop of this two-week itinerary in Mauritius. Today, let’s set off on a journey to discover the tea production process in Mauritius.

This culinary and cultural adventure is known as the Tea Route, and you’ll need to book in advance. A guide and a driver will escort you to several spots on the island:

The Tea Route is split into 3 stages and kicks off at Domaine des Aubineaux located near the town of Curepipe. This estate is a former colonial residence built in 1872.

During your visit, you’ll have the chance to explore a variety of attractions, including a distillery, a charming period tea room, beautiful gardens, and even some historic stables.

The next phase of the journey then takes you to Bois Chéri, where you’ll discover the island’s tea plantations. You’ll also visit the tea factory to grasp the various stages of production of this illustrious beverage.

Make sure not to miss the tea museum, where you can delve into the rich history of tea production. Afterward, treat yourself to a delightful tea tasting experience in a charming chalet, offering a panoramic view of the stunning southern region of the island.

The third and final stage of the Tea Route will introduce you to another colonial house from 1819, converted into a restaurant.

There, you’ll tour the sugar factory, the rum distillery, and also “La Maison de la Vanille” where Mauritian vanilla – a typical flavor added to local tea – is produced. To cap off the day, they’ll serve you a typically Mauritian meal.

Voyage Tips - Advice

The Tea Route is a truly intriguing experience to have in Mauritius.

Even though it might sound quite intense on paper, it’s conducted in a relaxed atmosphere and time just flies by. If you’d prefer to visit these 3 places at your own pace, you’re more than welcome to tour them one by one, independently and across several days.

6) East coast – Belle Mare / Île aux Cerfs / Bras d’Eau National Park (2 days)

For this sixth stage of your two-week vacation in Mauritius, I highly recommend dedicating the next two days to exploring the enchanting East Coast.

With its stunning expanses of white sand lining the country’s largest lagoons, lush nature, and luxury hotels, it’s one of the most beautiful regions of Mauritius.

Your first destination is Belle Mare and its dreamy beach that stretches over 10 kilometers! You can relax there, have a picnic, snorkel, dive, or try other water activities offered by the nearby hotels.

By late morning, head towards Trou d’Eau Douce beach, a few kilometers south of Belle Mare.

From this stunning beach, you can take a boat to Île aux Cerfs, a little paradise island off the coast. Spend half a day there relaxing, walking around, swimming, or trying out the sports and water activities on offer.

Booking your cruise to Île aux Cerfs is easy – just click on the following button:

The island also hosts several shops and restaurants. Despite its desert island vibes (white sand beach, palm trees, casuarinas…), Île aux Cerfs is in fact very (very) touristy.

I was slightly disappointed by the rather “artificial” aspect of the island with all its activities and facilities everywhere. Still, the place is worth a visit because the landscapes are breathtaking, and the boat trip in the turquoise lagoon is pure magic.

ile aux cerfs
Ile aux Cerfs – Deer Island

The following morning, stay in the east and follow the coastline north towards Bras d’Eau National Park.

This 500-hectare forest reserve is definitely worth a visit. It offers a tranquil and off-the-beaten-path experience, immersing you deep into nature’s embrace.

If you get there early in the morning, you might be lucky enough to see and hear local endemic birds like the Grey White Eye, the Coq des Bois, or the Kestrel. You might also come across monkeys, bats and wild boars.

As for flora, the park houses intriguing species like white eucalyptus and mahogany, which can sometimes grow over 40 meters tall. During the walk, you’ll also discover the ruins of an old sugar mill and a lime kiln, an old railway track, and several ponds.

Be careful! Just remember – you’re in a tropical forest, so your mosquito repellent is pretty much your best friend…

Voyage Tips - Advice

It’s easy to get to Bras d’Eau National Park by car. There’s even a parking area right at the entrance.

If you’re taking the bus from Belle Mare or Trou d’Eau Douce, you’ll need to get to Flacq, then take a taxi to the park entrance (a 10 to 15-minute car ride).

7) Rodrigues (3 Days)

For the last three days of your 14, 15 or 16-day itinerary in Mauritius, I highly recommend taking a side trip to Rodrigues, a quaint Mauritian isle nestled approximately 600 kilometers to the east of Mauritius.

So, make your way to the airport and catch a flight to Rodrigues, which is roughly a 1.5-hour flight.

Rodrigues is a tiny, tranquil island, perfect for some rest and rejuvenation. A lot of Mauritians pop over for a weekend now and then to kick back and relax. Far from the hustle and bustle of cities and beaches of the larger island, your short stay in Rodrigues will be characterized by peace and nature, all in a chilled-out ambiance.

Here, you won’t find mass tourism or large hotels, which means a more abundant and pristine nature and lagoon, and accommodation in bed and breakfasts or guesthouses.

Things to do and see during these 3 days in Rodrigues:

  • Explore the stunning eastern beaches of the island, between Pointe Coton and Port Sud-Est. From tiny U-shaped beaches, long beaches lined with casuarina trees, to hidden coves, all along azure, crystal clear sea waters, your eyes are in for a feast. In the winter, the beaches are nearly deserted, adding even more charm to these spots.
  • Take in the view from Rodrigues’ highest peak, Mont Limon (393 meters high). The climb to Mont Limon is super easy and only takes a few minutes. From there, you can enjoy a gorgeous sunset.
  • Visit the capital Port Mathurin, a tranquil little town with colorful houses. Stroll down the streets and don’t miss the market to pick up a souvenir or taste local specialties.
  • Take a boat trip to Hermitage Island and Cat Island. These two tiny islands are incredibly beautiful and very well-preserved.
  • Observe the marine flora and fauna in the lagoon: diving and snorkeling in Rodrigues are even more intense than in Mauritius, thanks to its much richer and preserved underwater life.
  • Go on an excursion to Coco Island: one of Rodrigues’ treasures. You can spend a full day or a half-day on Coco Island, which is home to numerous bird species. From Pointe Diamble village in the west, take a traditional pirogue boat for a 1.5-hour journey. Once on the island, you can explore it from end to end (it’s only 1 km long and 250 meters wide), relax on the white sand, or go birdwatching.
Voyage Tips - Advice
If you don’t have exactly 15 days in Mauritius, but rather 14 or 16 days depending on your flights, I recommend:

  • Either spending only 2 days in Rodrigues for a 14-day trip
  • Or adding an extra relaxation day in Rodrigues for a 16-day trip to Mauritius and Rodrigues

Where to stay in Mauritius

As I’ve told you, Mauritius is a tiny country! So, you have two options for exploring the island:

  • Book one hotel for the duration of your stay. The advantage is you don’t need to worry about packing and unpacking.
  • Choose to stay in 3 or 4 different places based on the stops we present in this 2-week itinerary. This way, you minimize the time spent on the road each day. Even though it’s tiny, you should consider the distances and potential traffic jams. There obviously aren’t any highways!

Whichever option you choose, I still recommend spending your first night in Mahébourg. This will help you recover more easily from the flight fatigue and jet lag. Plus, it’s the most convenient for visiting the Ferney Valley, scheduled for the following day on this itinerary. You could also spend your last night there to be close to the airport for an early departure.

So here are the best hotels for each stop, depending on your budget. You should not hesitate making your reservations now, as the best rooms go very quickly! (and if there are any changes, cancellations are usually free anyway)
