Where to drive your car rental in Mauritius

There is one main motorway in Mauritius which connects the airport to the major towns and cities in the country. Most likely you will be collecting your car hire vehicle from SSR international airport, which is located in the south east of Mauritius, so you will be able to take the M2 motorway direct to the capital, Port Louis. It is only a short journey of about 30 miles and shouldn't take much more than an hour. From Port Louis you can drive your car rental easily to most parts of the island, including the tourist area of Grand Baie on the northern coast, and the Black River Gorges National Park in the south.
