Okay, here’s the thing. Its Summer, its hot and you just can’t seem to find the courage nor the enthusiasm to go out during the day. Well, we’ve got a plan for you that is going to get you out of that lazy pajamas and enjoy the Island vibes!
While the world is having its snowfall of the month, Mauritius has its bright sun shining out on you in December. The heat is strong around the coastal line and if you move towards the center of the Island, you can still bask in grey skies and rain! Such extremities of weather in such a small place, fascinating! But if you are the one still not wanting to get out during this Sunny shenanigan, we’re here to give you another reason to go and bask in this warm brilliance.
During summer, the first thing you need to do is drink ample of water as it keeps you hydrated. Once you do that, put on those Dodos and a pair of shorts and walk towards your nearest beach. The is good wind and the ocean water is cool during the day so you would love to have a dip in the ocean and get refreshed on this heated day.
You can pick up some chilled beers, we suggest you take the Phoenix Fresh as its citron flavor will give you that exact blast of uplifting taste. The best time to go is around 4:30 pm as the sun is not directly overhead so you can take pleasure in the warm and cold mélange of the ambience. This does ideally set your mood! By the time you are done taking a dip, it is almost evening and you can sip on that can while watching the beautiful sunset or grab a hot Roti or some delicious boulettes from the hawkers to fill up your growling tummy! Just have a moment of bliss and you will see how beautiful the nature surrounding this Island is.
Hey, don’t laze around just reading this. Get up and get going, Get some Vitamin Sea!
Everyone put that sun spray out and get your flip-flops ready! Summer is here! Beautiful blue beaches and white powdered sands await your presence. Mauritius coastal line is flooded with tourists to get their glowing sun tan every year. If you haven’t tried snorkeling yet, this is the right time for you to jump in the cool waters. Explore the island’s bustling marine life by swimming with the Dolphins!
The best beaches to visit during summertime in Mauritius are Tamarin, Flic en Flac and GrandBaie. Flic en Flac has a good vibe as it is surrounded by delicious food hawkers, a supermarket and various restaurants, where you can go grab some quick munchies during your day out as well as active nightlife with a pretty good crowd. Grandbaie is a tourist HotSpot and is usually overcrowded. If you are looking for a sweet escape with your beloved with some much needed space, the Flic en Flac and Tamarin are the perfect choices for you.
And how can you miss out on the cold Alouda? – A local specialty drink made with milk, Basil seeds and vermicelli. A must try during this heaty exchange! Moreover, you can also find amazing and vibrant swimwear on display that don the Mauritian Dodo prints and lovely orchids.
You can end your day by sipping on a cool bootle of Goodwill – a local Rum or grab a can of Phoenix Beer and relax by surrendering yourself to the roaring of sea waves and the fresh salty smell of the Ocean.
