The saying goes: “West is best”, is the saying many people would use, where most of the islands finer resorts are located around the Grand Baie town in the north west corner of the island.Besides the obvious beach attractions, options to do scuba diving, catamaran tours, hikes to waterfalls, parasailing, swimming with dolphins and great silk and cotton textile shopping in Port Louis, Mauritius is simply a island brimming with many diverse cultures and fascinating history. Consider a 4 to 7 night stay here, and unwind after all the excitement of your safari!
