Mauritius Culture and Traditions

Visitors should adhere to the usual etiquette of not wearing shorts, mini-skirts or sleeveless shirts when visiting religious shrines, and removing shoes (and possibly leather belts) when entering mosques and temples. Women should carry a scarf if planning to enter a mosque. Statues, carvings and religious artifacts in places of worship should not be touched. Sunbathers should note that nudism and topless sunbathing are frowned upon on public beaches. No hotel permits nude sunbathing on beaches. Topless sunbathing is sometimes tolerated by hotel pools. Tipping is not compulsory.
