Mauritius Now


In 2020, the tourism in Mauritius experienced the two major crises in its history with the closure of borders due to the COVID 19 pandemic and the environmental crisis resulting from the grounding of the MV Wakashio off the south-eastern coast in July 2020.

The MTPA is launching a #MauritiusNOW multi-market campaign with a dedicated website.



Inform: provide clear and factual information on the environmental and health situation

Reassure: restore the attractiveness of the destination and restore confidence to the general public and our key targets (COVID-free, more pollution after the sinking, local initiatives)

Inspire: promote Mauritius as the best nature and seaside destination, seduce and attract potential travelers and repeaters to Mauritius, maximize the visibility of the destination to prepare for the recovery.


Promotional Material

Live and interactive content:

Exclusive content to showcase the unspoiled beauty of the island and allow people to immerse themselves in the landscapes of the destination. Livecams, drone videos and 360 videos to give confidence with images of unspoiled Mauritius.


A dedicated website #MauritiusNow:

The site brings together the exclusive content created for the campaign. The information and material illustrate the different phases of the rehabilitation campaign. The site is tailored to the specifics of each market and designed to ensure the perfect structure for dissemination on social media


A web series with portraits of locals:
