  Mauritius

Mauritius is a beautiful island that lies in the Indian Ocean in Southern Africa. Surrounded by coral reefs, Mauritius is a wonderful destination for beach lovers and those who like to dive and snorkel. The Creole cuisine is delicious too.

The contrast of a multitude of colours and tastes, the island, set in its turquoise sea, is an oasis of peace and tranquility.  Mauritius is a melting pot where past and present are smoothly blended together.

Mauritius is often referred to as the 'Star of the Indian Ocean' with safe beaches, gentle seas and a mild tropical climate combined with a legendary Mauritian hospitality which makes it one of the world's most sought after holiday destinations.
