VIDEO: Holidays to Mauritius (Raw footage)

By  | 

Welcome to our first ever youtube video! This is some raw footage of our family holidays to Mauritius that was filmed in 2005! Every time I watch it, it makes me really miss Mauritius and I really can’t wait to go again. What are your memories of Mauritius? Or what are you looking forward to seeing if you’ve never been? Comment below – would love to know!


Family holidays to Mauritius

Holidays to Mauritius for our family are quite different to your ‘normal’ holiday to a foreign country. Because we still have a lot of family over in Mauritius (cousins, aunties, uncles, grandparents) a majority of the time is spent visiting them. I do cherish this time and it’s always great to get some lovely Mauritian food with some traditional Mauritian roti thrown if for good measure 🙂

The remaining time is spent on Mauritius’ exquisite beaches, going to markets and exploring the country like any other tourist. One distinct advantage we do have is that our family living there act as our free tour guides!

This highlight holiday video to Mauritius includes;

  • My grandma making roti (may she rest in peace)
  • Top FM – A Mauritian radio station
  • Brilliant beaches – I’m craving to go and lie on one!
  • Mauritian people spontaneously dancing in the park



I was born in Mauritius and then moved to the UK when I was 21. Been here for the last 40 years working in the NHS. Hope you found this article useful.
