What if we have just stayed there? If we could have thrown our phones into the turquoise water, laughed about it one last time and then turned our back on civilization? There was enough timber to build a hut, and we probably could have managed to get a boat, so one of us could sail every few months to a place, where other people live, where you can buy stuff we actually don’t need anymore. How long would it have gone well for? Would it have ended the way that THE BEACH ended? My head was tipsy from one (or two) rum cocktails, and the sun. But the thought of just staying there, at Ile Plate, was very, very tempting. It was the only day we all spent together. The last day in paradise.
The whole week we were exploring Mauritius on our own, two by two, in small groups. We found paradise. More than once. Some were extreme sporty, some ate their way around the island. Some dived deep into the Mauritian culture and some (me) even won a small fortune (ELEVEN EURO) at the horse race. My trip to Mauritius was magical.
And this, after all, THIS was MY Mauritius:
Why I’ve won at the horse race and what happened around, what kind of people I’ve met at the market in Port Louis and what actually impressed me most about Mauritius… I will tell you soon!

Thanks for sharing such beautiful pictures of Mauritius.
It is paradise 🙂
It really is! <3
Great, great video! The water looks amazing.
Thank you Mike! And yes, one of the reasons why I love Mauritius so much are the amazing colors of the water!
Love the video. I always wanted to get lost on a remote island. The thought of staying there is alluring…
Thanks Laura! And yes… one day…
I’ve been dreaming of going to Mauritius for a long time now and this video just said I seriously need to plan 🙂
Beautifully shot video! I’ve had those feelings of “I could throw it all away and rebuild here” plenty of times, more so when there’s seclusion, a beach, and good food involved.
Thank you Devlin! I still have a dream of a lonely beach in Thailand… and a coconut bikini company… well. we’ll see… 😀
I always enjoy watching your videos, it is always an inspiration for me to make my own. This place reminds me a lot of my home. And such lovely people, too.
Aww, thank you Sherry! And yes, the Mauritian people are amazingly friendly.
Beautiful! Idyllic locale! Thank you for sharing the experience!
Thank you Mary!
Beautiful video. As if that isolated beach weren’t enough, you’ve also got wine. The life.
Thank you Melissa. We even had rum cocktails. Life can be good. 😀
Looks a beautiful place to spend a week or two just exploring all the wonders and lounging around on the beaches seems to be an ideal get away from the daily grind! Look forward to reading your thoughts on your trip but I can already guess they are rather positive!
Mauritius is more than just a honeymoon destination! There’s so much to see and do, I indeed was surprised about the diversity of this island! 😀
This video is total inspiration that I NEED to start taking more video!
Love your video and was wondering if you are happy for us to put on our Hills Balfour blog page with a link to your site?
Can you send me an email to confirm you are happy for me to do that?
Heritage Resorts – Mauritius was very proud to host the bloggers #MyMauritius. The video is fantastic as you really describe the colours of Mauritius together with the people (multicultural & diversity). Thank you for showing the beauty of this small island in the Indian Ocean : Mauritius 🙂
