Mauritius holidays… what to expect

Mark Twain famously summed up Mauritius when he said, “Mauritius was made first and then heaven; and heaven was copied after Mauritius.” Few who have visited this lush island would disagree. Located 2,000 kilometres off the east coast of Africa, Mauritius is renowned for its beauty. Encircled by the world’s third-largest coral reef, this tropical paradise is surrounded by crystal-clear lagoons and pristine white beaches.

Although the beaches and lagoons of Mauritius are its primary tourist attraction, the small island nation has more to offer than lazy days by the sea. At different points in its history, Mauritius has been a Dutch, French and finally British colony. Over the years, it became a cultural melting pot, with a population made up people from Africa, India, China and Europe. The interaction of these diverse cultures has created a distinctive Indo-Creole culture, which is an interesting fusion of different religions and customs; French, Indian and Chinese cuisine; and laid-back island living. The island’s popular Sega music and dances capture the soul of Mauritian culture, and are certain to be a highlight of your stay.

Despite its tiny size, Mauritius boasts a surprising diversity of landscapes. The south of the island is home to many of the country’s luxury resorts, thanks to the powdery white sand beaches that border a lagoon. In the north and east, dense vegetation gives way to rockier beaches, which open onto smaller lagoons teeming with colourful sea-life. The variation in the colour and texture of the ocean as you travel along the Mauritian coastline can be quite breathtaking. The deep azure waters of the west coast run into the almost fluorescent turquoise of the tranquil southern lagoon, while breakers peel along the coral reef that runs close to the shores of the north-east coast.
