Self Drive Holidays & Honeymoon
Day 1
Arrive at Reunion Airport, collect your hire car and drive 1.5-hours to Saint-Pierre in the south of the island.
 
This craggy volcanic island offers wonderful walking and mountain biking opportunities in its three magnificent 'cirques' (steep-walled bowl-shaped natural amphitheatres), formed inside Piton des Neiges - the volcano that gave birth to the island and further shaped by centuries of erosion - Salazie, Cilaos and Mafate.
 
Check into your hotel on the beautiful south coast that has beaches framed by coconut trees.
Days 2 To 3
At leisure to explore the wild south of the island - with its steep cliffs, lush vegetation and colourful Creole houses. Start with a walk along the harbour of Saint-Pierre, the largest town in the south. It has a small covered market in the town centre and a larger market each Saturday by the seaside.
 
You can visit Grand Anse beach, famous for its spectacular sunsets, but be aware that sea currents are very strong here so only swim and snorkel in the volcanic rock enclosed lagoon. You can also walk up the headland that overlooks this beach for beautiful tropical island views.
 
Other options include visiting Cirque de Cilaos and Piton de la Fournaise (Furnace Peak), the most active volcano on the island. You can also visit the Jardin des Parfums et Epices (Spice Garden) in the southeast of the island and Anse Waterfall in the east. Between the fisherman's harbour of Sainte-Rose and Saint-Philippe you can see the lava rivers that are gradually increasing the size of the island.
Day 4
Today drive 1-hour from Saint-Pierre to Saint-Gilles-Les-Baines on the west coast.
 
Check into your hotel in this town that is known for its beaches, with over 12-miles (20-kms) of golden sands, and lovely coral reefs. The town has many lively bars and restaurants clustered around Roches Noires beach.
Days 5 To 6
At leisure to relax and enjoy the lively town of Saint-Gilles-Les-Baines, which has a lovely beachfront and splendid sunsets over Roches Noires beach.
 
At the Garden of Eden botanical gardens you can see chameleons and a magnificent volcanic lava tunnel. We suggest an early morning trip to the Maido viewpoint over the Cirque of Mafate, where hiking is popular. This popular holiday town is a favourite surfing spot, but as sea currents can be very strong  you should only swim in the lagoon or at one of the protected beaches between L'Ermitage and La Saline-les-Baines.
 
In nearby Saint-Paul you can visit the fascinating Seaman’s Cemetery, where the French poet Leconte de Lisle is buried, as well as the famous pirate La Buse. Across the road you can visit the Grotte des Premiers Français - caves where the first inhabitants of the island are said to have lived. On a Friday don’t miss the local market, which is one of the nicest on the island.
 
You can also visit the Kélonia Sea Turtle research station in the nearby town of Saint-Leu, where a coral reef partly closes the bay to protect swimmers. Here you can snorkel over a coral garden that shelters numerous marine species including turtles, starfish, crustaceans and tropical fish. This is one of the best places in the world to view Humpback whales in season (June to September) and at the aquarium you can see moray eels, sharks and seahorses. Scuba diving and deep sea fishing trips are also available.
Day 7
Drive 1-hour to Reunion Airport for your onward flight.

You will be met at Mauritius Airport and transferred 1-hour to your beach resort.
 
Check in to your hotel, settle in and relax on this warm tropical Indian Ocean island, surrounded by sparkling turquoise waters and coral reefs.
Days 8 To 10
Enjoy lazy days relaxing on the white sandy beaches of Mauritius.
 
Swim and snorkel in these sparkling turquoise Indian Ocean waters, participate in a wide variety of water sports and savour fine Creole cuisine - especially the superb seafood.
 
Mauritius offers wonderful scuba diving in its calm clear waters, so this is the ideal opportunity to learn if you have never tried before, with many PADI dive centres. Deep sea fishing is also outstanding, in waters regarded as the best for marlin in the world.
 
Dolphin-watching catamaran cruises are very popular, as well as glass-bottomed boat rides to view the surrounding coral reefs swarming with tropical fish. Golf and horse riding are available, as well as bicycle hire to allow you to explore the island independently.
 
You can visit vibrant Grand Baie, with its pubs and nightlife and shop in the capital city of Port Louis, where you must expect to bargain vigorously. Or join one of many fascinating day tours that explore the history and nature reserves of the island.
Day 11
Today we suggest transferring to the West Coast for a full day shared Catamaran Trip, searching for dolphins in their natural habitat and snorkelling amongst coral outcrops.
 
Back on board enjoy lunch, before we continue sailing towards Benitiers Rock, where you can relax on deck or or enjoy a swim in the ocean. We return to shore later in the afternoon.
 
Note: Bring your own towel. Tour can take up to 8 hours from early morning hotel pick up to drop off. Operates everyday except Christmas & New Year. Min 2 on the day.
Day 12
Today we recommend an optional full day shared Picturesque South Tour to explore more of this beautiful island.
 
We visit the dormant volcanic crater of Troux-aux-Cerfs and Chamarel, with its seven coloured earth and waterfalls. We also stop at a viewpoint over the Black River Gorges and the sacred lake of Grand Bassin.
 
In Curepipe you can shop for model ships & jewellery. Lunch is included today.
 
Note: Tour can take up to 8 hours from hotel pick up until drop off. It operates every day except Sundays & public holidays.
Day 13
Transfer 1-hour to Mauritius Airport for your flight home.
