Once the haunt of pirates, this tropical island paradise is now best known for its luxurious hotels, dazzling white beaches and sparkling turquoise lagoons.
However, there's much more to Mauritius that's just waiting to be discovered: rugged mountains, colonial towns, quaint fishing villages, abundant water sports, award-winning spas, Championship golf courses and gourmet cuisine. It's also a great place to travel with children; the amusement parks, wildlife encounters and museums provide hours of entertainment for both little and big kids. The beauty and diversity of Mauritius is reflected in the warmth of its people and in the richness of the culture and heritage that binds them together. The Mauritian smile is genuine, natural and welcoming.
