Moka — 5 nights

Moka is a village in Mauritius located in the Moka District, the western part of the village also lies in the Plaines Wilhems District. Popular historic sites such as Citadel and Maison Eureka are in your itinerary. Get a sense of the local culture at Le Morne Brabant and Curious Corner of Chamarel. Change things up with these side-trips from Moka: The Martello Tower Museum (in Riviere Noire), Le Morne (Crystal Rock & International Slave Route Monument) and Chamarel Seven Coloured Earth Geopark (in Chamarel). And it doesn't end there: get engrossed in the history at Jewish Detainees Museum and Saint Martin Jewish Cemetery, examine the collection at The Photographic Museum, browse the different shops at Bagatelle Mall by Ascencia, and push the limits with Casela Nature Parks.

Island of Rainbows and Shooting Stars
A small but surprisingly multicultural island in the Indian Ocean, Mauritius sits just east of Madagascar and offers a white-sand coastline lapped by sapphire waters. The contrasts of colors, tastes, and cultures here makes a vacation in Mauritius richly rewarding, with plenty to do along the coast and deeper inland. A tour of Mauritius usually includes long stops at the island's beaches, which serve as launching points for deep-sea fishing trips, dolphin-watching excursions, and scuba diving adventures. Farther away from the water, you can discover a paradise for hikers and nature lovers. Mauritius is made for explorations on foot, with several volcanic summits and a large national park sheltering abundant species of indigenous plants and birds.
