Re: Mauritius
Had some work there several years back. Visited I think 4 times over a period of 6 months or so.

Don't know whether Bunks still posts on here, but he was WHO's resident member there for a while (though he's since left)

Get yourself a car and drive around. Some great scenery.

Struggling to remember some of the places but there was a great restaurant (with their own spiced rum) on a mountainside in the southwest of the island.

Avoid Port Louis after dark/ at weekends - as few people live there, so it's largely just dodgy characters who hang around there.

The green dip is the dog's bollocks. Not raita, but a mix of green chillies and other stuff.

Party area is in the far northwest.

Some good resorts but like I say, it's worth trying to head out and about for at least some of your stay - car hire can be done quite cheaply if you avoid Hertz, Avis, etc

Ron Burgundy: Discovered by the Germans in 1904, they named it San Diego, which of course in German means a whale’s vagina.

Veronica Corningstone: No, there’s no way that’s correct.

Ron Burgundy: I’m sorry, I was trying to impress you. I don’t know what it means. I’ll be honest, I don’t think anyone knows what it means anymore. Scholars maintain that the translation was lost hundreds of years ago.

Veronica Corningstone: Doesn’t it mean Saint Diego?

Ron Burgundy: No. No.

Veronica Corningstone: No, that’s – that’s what it means. Really.

Ron Burgundy: Agree to disagree.

Got married at Le Touessrok - great place with it's own islands with different beaches.

They also have giant toilets - but they're outside ones!

Re: Mauritius
San Diego translates as Saint James.

Re: Mauritius
San Diego. Discovered in 1909 by the Germans, it roughly translates as 'a whale's vagina'.

Re: Mauritius
Nice place San Diego.Like LA but with a bit of class.

The aircraft carrier is a must, as is the zoo and the rest of Balboa Park. Nice shopping in the out of town malls if you're into that, and there'/s a couple of Cheesecake Factories YEESS!

Re: Mauritius
You can't help yourself Sold, can you?

This is a thread about Mauritius and maybe strayed a bit with the best dive sites and here you go apropo of absolutely fucking nothing to tell us about this year's holiday in America which:

A is of no help to this thread,


B we all know already as you never fucking go anywhere else.

It's about as helpful as me saying my new sofa gets delivered today.

Anyway, having established that you are a boring cunt (with all due respect and all that) have you seen 'The Florida Project' yet? I thought of you when I watched it. I think it's right up your street. It's about little kids who live in the hinterland around Disneyland in garishly painted short-stay accommodation. Some great acting by the little girl who plays the lead and I bet the ending has your bottom lip wobbling. Mine was. Anyway, watch it and thank me later.

Re: Mauritius

Re: Mauritius
Fucking hell

Giant or toilets = giant tortoises

Re: Mauritius
"They've got some giant or toilets there too"

I was hoping for either or (but not both together) so that's good news.

Re: Mauritius
We (2) went in 2011 for a week at the (now) Mauricia Beachcomber. All inclusive. Great place to go for a complete rest. However, the hotel beach was mainly 2 inches of sand before you hit concrete! Next to the water was fine obviously but it was made to look a lot more natural than it really was. It did have some nightlife in the hotel though which was decent. Short walk into Grand Baie as well which made a break from the sunloungers and swimming pools.


- Do NOT do the submarine. Yeah you see a sunken Japanese trawler, but you will see more marine life watching an spins ode of Stingray. The walking tours on the seabed poked interesting though as did the underwater scooters. Loads of that on YouTube.

- Do go to the botanical gardens. Sounds shit but we found it really interesting. The gates are from the original Crystal Palace, and have you ever seen a camphor tree? They've got some giant or toilets there too although I think there are probably better places to see them.

- Port Louis worth a look, although the local market there which was recommended was mainly just a stinking hole. Reminded me of Queens Market on a Saturday. Nice new waterfront area though.

- They make a lot of big name polo shirts and stuff there and cheaper than UK too, but I'm not convinced the area the taxi driver took us to had the genuine Fred Perrys etc so be careful.
