There is one main motorway in Mauritius which connects the airport to all major towns. It only takes an hour and a half to drive across the island, so you can be sure there is not too long of a drive back to your hotel. From Port Louis you can drive your car rental easily to most parts of the island, including the tourist area of Grand Baie on the northern coast, and the Black River Gorges National Park in the south. Mauritius is known for its stunning white sand beaches, and whilst you visit you can also try your hand at sports such as surfing and water-skiing. Head to Tamarin Bay for a boat tour that will take you to view wild dolphins and even hzave the chance to swim with them. You could also make the drive to Chamarel Waterfall and on to Chamarel Seven Coloured Earths, both incredible examples of the natural beauty this island has to offer.
