Hello
I am due to go to Mauritius for a holiday in February next year and I will be staying at Le touessrok. We are flying in from Dubai, can we buy alcohol at the airport once we have landed or will we have to find an outlet on route to the hotel, or are we completely stuck only able to buy drinks at the hotel.
Thanks in advance
Clarkesville

Yes there is apparently a duty free shop in Arrivals, or there are local supermarkets. At least according to this site: https://www.mauritiusinsideout.com/mauritius-airport.html

Yes there is a duty free shop in Arrivals. I used it once, and many Mauritians (locals) use it too as alcohol is a bit expensive even in normal stores.

If you have friends in Mauritius, they may ask you to buy some for them (they will reimburse of course); and it even happened to one of us once that the personnel at the hotel, seing his alcohol from the duty free shop, asked if they can buy it from him (preferred alocohol is, I think, whisky)
