Healthcare in Mauritius

Healthcare is free for the locals. If you don’t have a Mauritian residency, you will need to pay for medical services. Mauritius offers public and private hospitals, which are referred to as ‘clinics’ on the island. The good news is that most of these private hospitals are found in the coastal regions of Mauritius, not far from the majority of tourist areas. Some clinics, such as the Clinique du Nord directly overlooks the beach and offers you a private veranda in front of your room where you can relax and recuperate on your very own stretch of sand. It’s also good to know that all major hotels on the island do provide an on-site doctor. Moreover, several doctors are willing to come directly to your house, hotel or villa.

Because of the affordable price tag, plastic surgery and dental work are also in high demand among tourists in Mauritius. All the private clinics and public hospitals speak French, English, Hindi and Mauritian Creole. While there are no call centers for these establishments, tourists can contact them on their direct lines.

Tips to stay healthy in Mauritius

  • Drink plenty of water. Remember, it’s a tropical island with the sun pretty much omnipresent all year round so be sure to keep hydrated.
  • Never neglect your sunscreen, especially if you’re visiting the beach during midday. Similarly, don’t forget to bring your hat or umbrella when you’re walking in the sun.
  • Bring mosquito repellent. Because it is a tropical island, you’ll certainly encounter more than your fair share of mosquitoes and bugs during summer, especially if you’re visiting woodsy areas. While malaria is not really an issue in Mauritius, it’s always best to take the necessary precautions.
