Handpicked by a Mauritius Local Expert, we bring you our guide to 'Things to do in Mauritius when it rains'.

When you are on a tropical island, you would of course expect beautiful sunny days almost every day enjoying outdoor activities; lazy day at the beach, cruises, lunch and drinks at beach bars, strolls on the streets and many more.

So what to do if it rains in Mauritius?

Don’t stress as it’s not good neither for your health nor for your skin. Here’s a nice list of things to do when it rains specially designed for you. You will be amazed by the array of indoor activities which exist on the island besides the classic ‘going out for a film, shopping, spa day or bowling’ (though the simplest things sometimes prove to be the most enjoyable ones), you have a number of museums at the four corners of the island which are really interesting in discovering the rich history of Mauritius, factories (sugar, tea, biscuit), some are still operating, others have stopped their operations and became museum, but both types provide you with guided tours, aquarium, other more crazy and unique activities like the Curious Corner at Chamarel or Dodo Quest.

As the saying goes, better anticipate than adapt. So no worries you already have this list handy in case of rainy days.
