I have not been there and don't have any clue about the place... but I reason to think that you would be better off sticking to water sports.
e.g. water skiing all day (whilst working forearm endurance :thumleft:

Check http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geography_of_Mauritius

Looks like there are mountains, but I don't think many people associate climbing and Mauritius.

Some great island nations for climbing - Maldives (highest point: 2.5m asl), Tuvalu (highest point 5m asl)...

Seychelles is the place to go, those boulders and rocks on La Digue look amazing.

Cutloose,

I have been there before but not for climbing, sadly Honeymoon :lol: (Kidding)

The peaks look awesome. I would suggest you get a hold of Gavin Raubenhiemer (Peak High Mountaineering) I know he has climbed there before with a client.

Some friends of mine went climbing there on their honeymoon. They used a local guide. I'll see if I can get some details for you.

Hell yes, they are that and so much more too! Not to mention the out-of-this-world diving
Happy climbing
Nic

daar is niks nie.
best you can do is do a hike up Le Morne (for which you need to hire a guide to get access).
but try Reunion. great climbing and kloofing....
