The enchanting island of Mauritius represents all that tropical dreams are made of; endless stretches of stunning white sandy beaches, lapped by azure seas rich with marine life, set against a backdrop of swaying palms and mountainous forest.
A warm welcome will be assured from the local people, a blend of diverse cultures and religions drawn from their ancestral homes, a rich heritage that is also reflected in the cuisine – a tantalising blend of Chinese, Indian, French and African fare.
The protection of a coral reef encircling the island creates gentle warm seas suitable for all abilities and ages of swimmers and a perfect environment for a host of watersports from scuba-diving to water-skiing.
Activities are not just focused off the 200 mile coastline however. A lush, volcanic interior also beckons for exploration, such as The Black River Gorges National Park which is a haven of native rainforest, diverse flora and fauna. Whilst giant waterlillies may be a feature at The Botanical Gardens, it is free-roaming tortoises of an extraordinary large size that attract visitors to the Vanille Reserve des Mascareignes.
Many world-class Golf courses such as the Isle au Cerfs, situated on its own tropical island, whilst for those just looking to relax, there are some heavenly Spa’s at many of the luxurious hotels we feature.
