Figures published by the Mauritius Bureau of Statistics for the year 2023 reveal that 1,295,410 tourists visited Mauritius, bringing the total close to the 1.3M mark.

Over 99% of all tourist flux in 2022 and 2023 came from air arrivals, which was the primary driver of the expansion. With 635,663 men and 659,747 women, the gender ratio is again roughly balanced. However, there were somewhat more female arrivals in 2023 than there were in 2022 (503,952). This is a reflection of this market segment’s growing appeal.
