Radically shaped volcanic mountains, white sandy beaches and beautiful lagoons all hint at the cultural and dramatic cocktail that makes Mauritius the island paradise that it is today. With its spectacular landscape forming the perfect backdrop for the luxury resorts that circle the island, you can while away your days exploring some of the world’s most breathtaking beaches. Though the coral reefs and blue seas are the obvious attractions, Mauritius also has a fascinating heritage, with grand plantation mansions, Hindu shrines, and fragrant cuisine, fused with Creole and French flavours, dotted around the small nation.
Whether you are exploring the coast by yacht, tasting the famous rum in the port towns, or simply taking full advantage of the wealth of watersports and activities on offer, you will soon understand why Mauritius is many people’s idea of Eden on earth.
