Your most convenient choice is to take a flight from any of the big Indian cities. New Delhi has a few direct flights that’ll land you at the Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport – about 48 km away from Port Louis. You can take your preferred pick of the many carriers that fly this route. A window seat is must if you’re eager for beautiful oceanic and island views! Make sure you have a valid passport, as that’s all you need for your visa on arrival.
While flying offers great aerial views entering Mauritius, taking a cruise on the high seas is surely the more scenic route. It’s perfect for luxury, romance or even just a never-before-had experience! While the shorter distances would be from ports like Durban or Madagascar in Africa, your Indian options would make for much longer journeys. Mumbai, Chennai or Kerala are ports from where Mauritian cruises regularly depart, especially the famed Costa Cruises. The 12-13 days it takes you is an experience in itself – one of endless ocean vistas and a high-end floating home that caters to your every whim and fancy. Be sure to take sea-sickness aids, even if you think you can handle it. Whichever mode you choose to travel, SOTC has some great Mauritius tourism packages. Simply pick one and be on your merry way.
