Explore beautiful Mauritius on a budget

The priciest spots on this dream island are by its sapphire waters and white-sand beaches, but this means the real Mauritius of hot curry, fishing villages and hiking trails is going cheap.

Food

DOMAINE

When travellers ask where to go in Grand Baie to savour some Mauritian home cooking, locals invariably say Domaine. Prices are low and the best dishes are the local specialities, such as ourite au safran (octopus cooked in ginger, garlic and turmeric) and chilli lamb (00 230 263 5286; Narainen St, Upper Vale, The Vale; 5pm–11pm Mon, 11am–11pm Tue–Sun; mains from £3.)

PALAIS DE BARBIZON

In the tiny hamlet of Chamarel, Barbizon may not look much but it’s a fabulous place. Marie-Ange helms the kitchen, whipping up traditional flavours from her family’s cookbook while Rico L’Intelligent entertains at the tables. There’s no menu; instead, Rico offers a feast of rum punch, rice, veggies, and fish or chicken for just £10. It’s the best money you’ll spend (00 230 483 5078; Route Sainte-Anne; noon–4pm).
