The ubiquitous banyan tree, among the best Mauritius sights!
Mauritius sights: best things to do and see apart from beaches
Mauritius offers few sights, but here are a few of the island’s things to visit, after beaches, naturally.
Banyan trees, one of tropical countries’ most spectacular growths are visible beside roads all over the island, and – brutal but true – make better sights than many of the official tourist attractions. That being said, things to do in Mauritius may be in short supply but at least there are some attractions a visit, unlike many competing beach-oriented islands such as the Seychelles or much of the Caribbean which offer sand, sea and walks but little else.

Plenty of bird life in Mauritius. This is a red-whiskered Bulbul.
Port Louis, the capital city of Mauritius and not an attractive place. It’s a non-sight but sadly en route from most of A to much of B.
