Mauritius What to Pack

    Depending on means of travel: For hotels nothing is a problem. You will get great service. If you are backbacking be as small as possible as busses get really packed. Normal summer holiday clothes. A good pair of walking shoes recommended. You get everything in the stores. Mosquito Repellent would be a good idea. The stuff we got there did not...

Low healed metallic sandals and dressy flip flops are perfect for day time and evening. A dazzling array of sundresses and beaded kaftans. Smart shorts & tops. I also pack 3 in 1 wipes,...

  • Flip-flop's - clever choice

    What shoes to take with you? Take flip-flop's as they are the ones you will need there.When it rains the water comes pouring down and there are water puddles everywhere.

From the hotel it is just a short walk into the local village where you can buy Polo Ralph lauren clothing etc. Take plenty of...
