A magical destination
Mauritius truly could be a paradise on earth. Calm crystal lagoons, palm-fringed powdery beaches, verdant mountain peaks and an exotic mix of French, Indian, African and Creole cultures and cuisine.
Mauritius is fringed with white sand beaches and peppered with lush sugar cane fields. Verdant mountains rise up, towering above the crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean. The spectacular island of Mauritius offers some of the finest hotels in the world, fabulous golfing and indulgent relaxation, all within the most sublime of tropical settings.
Powder soft beaches are encircled by coral reefs and dotted with exotic coconut palms. This beautiful island also boasts dramatic mountain ranges, tropical forests, tumbling waterfalls, gently swaying fields of sugar cane, chic hotels, sophisticated cuisine, superb water sports and charming cosmopolitan people with infectious smiles.
A year round destination, Mauritius enjoys a warm, subtropical climate, with relatively little seasonal variation in temperatures, year round. It is very special and there’s nowhere quite like it.
Aside from relaxing on the beach, taking part in watersports or enjoying a round or two of golf, this gem of an island also offers a wealth of alternative pursuits including Eco Tour Adventures, Family Tours and Sunset Cruises. Other activities include cultural tours, land excursions, sea adventures, helicopter trips and island hopping to Reunion or Rodrigues Island.
