A jewel in the heart of the Indian Ocean of unspoiled white sandy beaches that give way to a warm turquoise sea. The tropical island paradise of Mauritius is both an exotic holiday destination and an ideal stopover en route to Africa.
Surrounded by unspoiled white sandy beaches and a warm turquoise sea, Mauritius is perfect for a relaxing beach holiday or winding down at the end of a safari in Africa. Dramatic volcanic mountains covered in thick forest form the centre of the island, offering a range of pretty walks past waterfalls and sites that provide a window into the island’s colonial past. Most of the spectacular coastline is protected by a coral reef, with plenty of sheltered lagoons ideal for swimming, snorkelling and other water sports.
Friendly and hospitable, the local population is highly multi-cultural, comprised of Chinese, Indian, Creole and French while the cuisine is both delicious and unique. Mauritius also has a high standard of tourist infrastructure with excellent hotels, restaurants and guest services, making it a wonderful place for a family holiday or a romantic honeymoon.
