Mark Twain was once told that “Mauritius was made first and then heaven; and heaven was copied after Mauritius”.


Miles of palm-fringed sandy beaches encircled by coral reefs, elaborately decorated Hindu temples by the roadside, lushly carpeted volcanic peaks, fields of swaying sugar cane and powder-white beaches mark out this paradisal island.



The crystal clear waters are perfect for diving, snorkelling, swimming, kayaking, or trips to near-perfect islets, excursions to botanical gardens and colonial plantation houses. Mauritius is also home to some of the best luxury spa and golf experiences in the world!



There’s much more to do and explore, from skydiving out of a plane, hiking through the mountains and discovering National Parks or soaking up local cultures and traditions at museums, galleries, the central bazaar, and the spectacular Jummah Mosque.



Mauritius is a fabulous culinary destination with great wildlife watching thrown in, enjoying a tropical climate year-round, with pleasant weather ranging from 25-30 degrees Celsius, so you can catch rays and enjoy the sunshine regardless of when you visit.
