More About Mauritius

This enchanting island in the Indian Ocean has a history of diversity to be justly proud of. The English, French, Dutch and Portuguese have all ruled the island and have left their mark on everything from the island’s culture to architectural design and the amazing cuisine. Benefiting from a year-round tropical climate Mauritius has a lush landscape where waterfalls spill over dramatic cliffs and, with a 700,000-year-old volcanic ravine – Trou Aux Cerfs, the island offers up some superb photographic opportunities. There‘s also Le Morne Brabant, a peninsula on the southwestern tip of the island which has a majestic basaltic mountain with a summit of 556 metres. Mauritius is famed for its luxury hotels and is a wonderful getaway choice for couples, families and sporting enthusiasts alike. There are hotels where you can stay on an all-inclusive basis and others that are perfect for keen golfers. The beaches are wonderful and the turquoise waters are excellent for watersports. Diving and snorkelling in the lagoons allow you to see the wealth of sea life and colourful corals. Lots of hotels have associations with a PADI dive centre which offer courses for absolute beginners as well as more experienced divers. Port Louis is the island's capital which lies on the northwest coast. It has a bustling market, a Natural History Museum, the Indian Tamil Temple and a historic race track. Visit La Caudan Waterfront for a wide array of shops, restaurants, a casino, a craft market and live entertainment. Grand Baie has lovely long white sand beaches and shallow seas making it popular with families. It's also good for watersports and the town has plenty of shops plus the great selection of eateries and bars makes Grand Baie a busy nighttime spot too.
