A country rich in history having first being colonised back in 1638 it has a fascinating blend of cultures, traditions, customs and cuisine. English is the official language but you will hear some French and Creole when you’re out and about.
Apart from the south coast, the island is surrounded by coral reefs making it an enticing playground for divers and water sports enthusiasts alike. Diving, wind-surfing, snorkelling and sailing are just some of the popular activities. If you prefer your sports on dry land, Mauritius has a great selection of quality golf courses.
The north coast was one of the first areas on the island to welcome holiday makers. It has all the necessary ingredients for a Mauritian holiday including beaches, shopping, entertainment and water-sports facilities. The island’s east coast has some particularly fine beaches including Blue Bay along with its marine reserve. The west and south-west have beaches and water sports facilities in abundance. While the south and south-east coasts have a very different landscape and are not shielded by a coral reef.
Who should go to Mauritius? In our opinion – everybody of course! That is if you enjoy sun, sea, sand, relaxation, tasty & exciting fusion cuisine, beautiful scenery and friendly welcoming smiles. Mauritius has a reputation for being a honeymoon haven. But you don't have to be a honeymooner to realise that Mauritius has that very special “something” that will make your stay the experience of a lifetime.
