World class golf in Mauritius

Mauritius is the ultimate year-round golfing destination.

Beachcomber provides an exceptional golfing experience for guests, complete with package options and professional coaching. The 18-hole, par 72-championship golf course at Paradis is considered among the best golf courses in the Indian Ocean.

At Shandrani, the challenging 9-hole mashie course has a unique layout and golfers consider it great practice for their short game. Set against a canvas of crystal seas and an impossibly blue sky, there cannot be a more beautiful place in the world to play that perfect round of golf.

At hotels where there is no course, golf can be arranged at Paradis or at Mont Choisy Le Golf, a brand new 18-hole golf course in the north of Mauritius.

There are a number of spas throughout the island that give you all the pampering you could ever need.
