The mandatory hotel quarantine is not the only thing that changed since the phased reopening of the Mauritian borders to international flights. A number of tourist attractions have had to suspend their activities. New rules pertain to public places. The changes are to protect the population and tourists from the virus transmission.

Transfer to your next destination

The transfer from the quarantine hotel must be pre-planned, either with the hotel or independent car rental services.

Activities/Things to do in Mauritius

The Tourism Authority has provided hotels and other tourist attractions with a very detailed and effective set of rules to abide by. The new regulations have the health and safety of the population and the tourist as a priority.

Most of the activities remain open except for some nautical ones. For example snorkelling has been suspended and the stand-up paddle at the Blue-Bay Marine park as well. For other activities like the helicopter rides, guests are asked to keep their masks on.
