Packing List for a Family Holiday to Mauritius

Insurance Documents

This is so important, and definitely worth the money. We have luckily never needed to claim, however, I wouldn’t go abroad without it.

Carry On Travel Bag

I highly recommend the Mia Tui bag for travelling, it is huge. It has lots of pockets and makes finding things so much easier. Not only that it has 2 other bags included, a clear bag perfect for carrying liquids in, and another clutch bag perfect for going out at night with. It is of excellent quality and it is vegan friendly. I wouldn’t now travel without it.

I have an exclusive discount code for 20% off all purchases with code FREDDIE20.

Sun Cream (face and family).

We used the EVY brand  this year for all of us. We found that the factor 30 would be perfect. What we loved about this is it is a long lasting mousse, and it wasn’t at all oily, so perfect for kids and adults a like.

I always use a factor 50 for my face, and this year tried the HEVL. It is really light weight, I have sensitive skin also and I had no problem with it.

Beach Bag

I absolutely love this Banana Moon beach bag it is really big and light to carry. Simply Beach have absolutely loads of beachwear, so definitely check it out.

Swimwear & Swimming Shorts (men and kids)

Stuart and Freddie both wore swimming shorts from Simply Swim, they were really colourful and they have amazing brands, they opted for Speedos, but there are lots to chose from.

Rash Vest

Freddie has always worn rash vests, in fact even when he has swimming lessons. But for me it just takes a lot of the worry of sun burn out of the equation.

Beach Towels

Dock and Bay have created the most amazing quick drying beach towel, they are also really thin so perfect to pop in your beach bag.

Inflatable Beach Ball

We took this 50cm mega globe one with us, as not only was it huge, it is really educational too.

Water Ball

We fell in love with the Waboba ball when we were in Jamaica last year, and now it is something we will always take on holiday.

Water Shoes

These are a must in Mauritius due to the coral.

Toiletries

An absolute must is the freshen up spritzer by Angela Langford. Not only  for Mauritius, this is a must in any hot weather (including our own UK heatwave!). Personally I have kept mine in the fridge (we were lucky to have a fridge in our room) as it is even more refreshing. It smells absolutely gorgeous as rose, geranium & orange blossom are mixed with aloe vera and comfrey to produce a refreshing tonic that keeps your skin hydrated, calm & fresh throughout the day.

Insect Repellent

We opted for these wristbands, they are so much better than spraying yourself. You can opt from black, white, green or orange, and are adjustable wrist bands, perfect for both adults and children.

Underwater camera

With all the fish in the sea, this is a definite essential.

Medication

Apart from the usual paracetamol and ibuprofen we always make sure we take Calpol with us too.

Hand Sanitiser

I don’t leave home without this anyway, but make sure you pop a little bottle either in your hand luggage or in your suitcase.

Playing cards

We played cards a lot and managed to teach Freddie how to play gin rummy and patience.

Kindle and/ or Nintendo Switch

These were a life saver!! Freddie is now 8 and of course he wasn’t playing with them too much, but at night when we wanted a drink (or 2!) he would sit with his new found friends and either play on his switch or his kindle.  Great for a bit of “grown up” time!

Makeup

Don’t forget the waterproof mascara, this is a must for any packing list of mine!!

Swimming Goggles

These are a must for Freddie, mainly as he needs prescription googles. However, if your kids love playing in the pool I would really recommend taking them with you.

Snorkel

You can’t go to Mauritius without a snorkel, there are fish absolutely everywhere.

  1. Really informative post. Did you find that the insect repellent bracelets worked? I have never tried them but love the idea of that instead of spray.

    1. Yes we loved them, you could smell the repellent but it was nothing like the spray. They claim you can use them for 14 days, but we used them 24 hours a day, and I think they worked for a full 7 days. Really impressed 🙂
