Pointe-Jérôme

Your ticket to tranquillity

Pointe-Jérôme, located between Mahébourg and Pointe-d'Esny, is a small fishing village with plenty of charm.  

Situated just 15 minutes from the airport and close to the historic village of Mahébourg, it really is the perfect location for your next luxury escape to Mauritius. A ticket to tranquillity, Pointe-Jérôme is beautiful with greenery on one side and the turquoise lagoon on the other.  

Founded in 1805, the neighbouring village, Mahébourg, was named after French governor Mahe de Labourdonnais and holds an important spot in Mauritian history. The village was witness to the only French victory in the Napoleonic Wars at the Battle of Grand Port for its naval forces. There is evidence of Dutch, French and British history to be found here.  

A real hotspot for getting a taste of real Mauritian life, the Pointe-Jérôme and Mahébourg areas offer plenty for visitors to do. Fishermen heading out to sea on their wooden boats and vibrant local markets selling the catch of the day among other Mauritian items can be enjoyed here alongside various eateries, museums and street food stalls.  

Renowned for its stunning coral garden, The Blue Bay Marine Park is also close to Pointe-Jérôme and is home to hundreds of species of coral and fauna. Perfect for snorkelling, it is ideal for a great day out.

When to go

Mauritius is a year-round destination, with summer and winter months offering something different. The summer months, from October through to April, are perfect for beach lovers - days are long and temperatures are in the high 20s. There is the odd chance of a cyclone in the south of the island, though. The winter months (during the UK summer) are a little cooler, in the early 20s, so are ideal for hiking and exploring. If you’re planning on diving, the summer months are your best bet – the waters are warmer and (usually) calmer, and there’s more sea life around.

Visa Information

Visas are not required for Mauritius. You will receive a stamp in your passport valid for 60 days.

Tipping

Tipping in Mauritius is appreciated, but not expected. In restaurants you can leave the small change or round the bill up if you received excellent service. Ensure you give your tip directly to the person whom you wish to receive it.
