Lying five hundred miles to the east of Madagascar, Mauritius is a charming tropical volcanic island surrounded by coral reefs that teem with spectacular marine life. Its miles of palm-fringed sandy beaches and clear picture-postcard waters makes it a haven for sun lovers and water sports enthusiasts alike. Inland is just as spectacular with savannah-style plains, ancient forests and, in the south-west, the Black River Gorge National Park, home to some of the world’s rarest flora and fauna.
With European, African, Indian and Chinese influences, Mauritius is a cultural smorgasbord with traditions, cuisine and music blending elements of others to create something truly unique. Add in the wonderfully welcoming Mauritians and a dream escape awaits.
