Mauritius is a tropical fantasy of an island in the southern Indian Ocean, blessed with sunshine, trade winds and endless beaches. With its superb climate, wonderful hotels and friendly people the island is a fantastic tourist destination. But there is a lot more to Mauritius than just swaying palm trees and soaking up the rays.

The tropical island of Mauritius, once a haunt for pirates, is now best known for luxury hotels on white sand beaches with mountain backdrops. It is an island for relaxation and exploration, with Indian temples, colonial houses, botanical gardens and diverse wildlife. Mauritians are renowned for their hospitality and visitors to the islands generally rave about the service.

Mauritius has some of the best value deals in the region. Reassuring remnants of the British colonial era remain in the Gymkhana Club, tea plantations and driving on the left, but an active volcano, an abundance of palm trees, dhal puri stalls at markets and the ubiquitous dodo icon, add a touch of the exotic.

Mauritius is regularly voted as one of the best island destinations in the world and it is easy to understand why. It enjoys a tropical climate, has a wide variety of activities on offer and some of the best hotels anywhere in the Indian Ocean. It is a tropical gem with stunning beaches and a warm welcome.
