MAURITIUS: Indian Ocean island paradise with a diverse culture and landscape

Indian Ocean island paradise with a diverse culture and landscape

Mauritius is a marvellous mix of African, Indian, European and Oriental influences all set on a spectacular island of white sand beaches, sugar cane fields and mountains. Home to some of the finest hotels in the world, as well as fabulous golfing and indulgent relaxation, it is little wonder that Mark Twain deemed this the prototype on which paradise was fashioned.

  • We know Mauritius well and have a great range of hotels, many with exclusive offers
  • Beautiful beaches and great snorkelling
  • Sample the traditional Creole flavours, especially when it comes to seafood
  • Great local markets, the ideal place to practise your haggling and find some souvenirs to take home
  • Whilst here, head for an adventure on nearby Reunion Island to discover some dramatic scenery
