Sports and nature

Sports and nature Sports and recreation There is a very active sporting culture in Mauritius. Football (soccer), introduced by the British, claims the greatest number of participants and fans. At the highest level there is a national team that competes in the African Cup of Nations tournament. Locally, fans follow the teams in a football league that has been around for decades. The small Franco-Mauritian community avidly supports a highly organized and rather ritualized season of deer hunting. Mauritians from all communities make winter horse racing one of the most popular and highly attended sporting activities of the year. Individual Mauritians have competed at the highest international levels in both bridge and backgammon.

Nightlife

Nightlife

Nightlife on the island is getting more hip with the introduction of the beach party concept at the C Beach Club in the South featuring monthly Sunday Brunches with international DJs spinning the decks and Le Touessrok's Full Moon party on Ile aux Cerfs on the east coast. Sophisticated recent openings have included Bombara nightclub at Long Beach on the east coast, La Vida restaurant, bar and lounge at Flic en Flac and OMG, the latest club to open in Grand Baie.

Culture and history

The ancestral melting-pot that is Mauritian culture allows different faith communities to cohabit in mutual respect. Mauritius is an island of temples, churches and mosques.
