Natural attractions in Mauritius Overview

In Mauritius, instead of whisky or wine routes, we take pride in our unique tea route. At the forefront of one of the several natural attractions in Mauritius, is the renowned Bois Cheri Tea Plantation, the largest tea producer on the island. Established in 1892, Bois Cheri has steadily expanded to become the country’s leading tea manufacturer. Encompassing over 250 hectares, the tea plantation offers a captivating experience, featuring a museum and a factory where visitors at this natural attractions in Mauritius excursion can delve into the fascinating world of tea, exploring both its artistic and scientific aspects. 

Up next in the list of amazing natural attractions in Mauritius is St. Aubin. It is a graceful plantation house with a rich history dating back to 1819. Initially situated next to the factory, the house was relocated in the 1970s to provide its owner with a more peaceful night’s rest. While the estate no longer engages in sugar production, its gardens boast a traditional rum distillery and a nursery cultivating anthurium flowers and vanilla. 

Ile Aux Aigrettes, declared a Nature Reserve in 1965 and obviously ranks in one of the top natural attractions in Mauritius. It stands as a globally significant conservation site. Its name originates from a colony of graceful white fishing birds known as Egrets, which inhabited the island in the 1600s. This island hosts unique plant species that are exclusive to Ile Aux Aigrettes, representing the final remnants of a coastal forest that once enveloped a significant part of Mauritius. Notably, 18 Mauritian plant species found on the island are classified as endangered or very rare and they surely sums up the natural attractions in Mauritius in one place for its tourists. 

Situated in the southeast of the island, Blue Bay earned the status of a national park in 1997 and was later recognized as a wetland site of international importance under the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands in 2008. At Mauritius Holidays, we ensure your trip to several places at the natural attractions in Mauritius is worth the time, entertainment, and price. Want to know about more exclusive offers?
