Poste Lafayette is a barely-there village on the north-east coast of Mauritius. It’s made up of a string of seafront houses and hotels, so ticks the box for away-from-it-all breaks. You’ve got beaches where seclusion trumps everything, plus a national park that’s checkerboarded with volcanic wildlife walks, wetlands and dense patches of jungle.
The Jalsa Beach Hotel & Spa’s right by a postcard-worthy lagoon, making it prime real estate for peaceful sunbathing and snorkelling sessions. Water fans have it made here. You can drift between the swim-up-bar-fitted pool and the beach in a matter of seconds. The latter’s home to a watersports centre, too, where you can try scuba diving*.
When your stomach starts to rumble, the buffet restaurant’s on hand with a platter of local, European, Indian and Asian dishes to pick from. Plus, it’s got a sea-view terrace when you can dine al fresco.
