Mauritius offers some of the best Instagrammable scenery in the world, from its lush green landscapes and crystal clear waterways to its breathtaking waterfalls and colourful temples.
Mauritius trip is a photographer’s dream, with so many fantastic settings to select from, and you’ll catch so many incredible photos here.
There’s something for everyone on this gorgeous island, whether you’re trekking the Le Morne mountain trail, or visiting one of the many unspoiled enticing beaches! So make sure you have a large memory card on hand; you’ll need it.
So, without further ado, here are our picks for the most Instagrammable spots in Mauritius that will blow your mind.
Chamarel Seven Colored Earth
Seven-colored earth is one of Mauritius’ most remarkable natural wonders; this incredible Geopark looks like something you’d expect to see on Mars.
This natural phenomenon is one of the main tourist attractions in Mauritius, and it’s no wonder. These incredible dunes are made up of seven different colors (red, brown, violet, green, purple, yellow, and blue).
This place can get occupied, so the best time to see the dunes light up is sunrise; you will get the best pictures, but it also won’t be overcrowded.
La Vanille Nature Park
This is a must-see on any Mauritius itinerary. You’ll have plenty of Instagram opportunities here, especially if you get to feed the huge tortoises.
You can spend hours feeding them, and the kids will surely enjoy it. As you go through the beautiful park, you’ll see gigantic bamboo and palm trees and over 2000 crocodiles, colorful fish, unusual birds, and much more.
Chamarel waterfall is Mauritius’s most visited Instagrammed waterfall, and it’s easy to understand why it’s popular.
Chamarel waterfall includes a lower and upper viewing area and is surrounded by lush tropical vegetation. Both are highly famous, so be prepared for people “photobombing” you and walking in front of your beautiful shot.
Although it is highly crowded, it is well worth the visit because it is a beautiful sight to behold, and you will finally capture some fantastic photos. We’d recommend coming early or late in the day when it’s a bit calmer.
Tamarina Golf Course
As you walk around this breathtaking 18-hole championship course, you’ll be able to take in the stunning scenery of the massive jagged mountain peaks in the background.
The course is open all year and will provide an excellent experience for any golf enthusiast, especially those looking for some incredible Instagram photos.
Hike Le Morne Mountain
The Le Morne hike is 7km long and takes about 4 hours to complete. Don’t let this deter you; yes, it’s a challenging hike, but the views at the summit are spectacular and well worth the effort.
You will encounter some steep jagged inclines on your route to the summit, so be cautious. The view along the hike is breathtaking, so it’s worth the blood, sweat, and tears! (It’s not all that horrible.)
You’ll be rewarded with panoramic views of the stunning blue ocean and its coral reefs at the summit, which will make for amazing Instagram photographs or tales for your account.
Le Morne Beach
Le Morne beach, which stretches for more than 3km, has one of the most beautiful backdrops you’re likely to see.
The sea is pretty shallow, so take your camera out until the water is chest high, then spin around to capture the lofty Le Morne mountain.
Chateau De Labourdonnais
If you enjoy touring historic colonial houses, this is the spot for you. This picture-perfect mansion is located in the northern portion of Mauritius and combines beauty with architecture.
Take the trek down the long driveway, where the massive trees form a tunnel-like roof, which makes for a truly stunning image. There aren’t many tourists here because it’s pretty quiet.
A breathtaking natural phenomenon known as the “underwater waterfall” may be found in Mauritius, just off Le Morne beach.
The Mauritius underwater waterfall is famous in its own way; the coral reefs, varying colors of blue, and the movement of sand and silt sediments from the powerful currents create an optical illusion.
If you want to see this amazing sight, you can take a private helicopter tour or rent a boat. If you choose the boat option, you will need to purchase a drone to take the aerial photograph.
So, whether you’re planning to trek Le Morne mountain or visit the underwater waterfall, Mauritius is an amazingly gorgeous island that will provide you with plenty of photo opportunities.
There’s so much to explore; make sure you plan your itinerary accordingly to fit it all in and appreciate the true splendor Mauritius has to offer.
