The most luxurious of the Indian Ocean islands with a sophisticated tourist industry, Mauritius is an ideal family destination.

There are plenty of sheltered beaches for snorkelling and swimming as well as a variety of watersports, fishing and diving, while the keen golfer will be impressed with the perfectly manicured greens.

The Mauritians are amongst the world’s most friendly people. The passage of time has achieved a polyglot of nationalities and religions which co-exist in harmony on this beautiful island. The cultural melting pot of Indians, Chinese and Europeans; Christian, Hindu and Muslim, has produced colourful festivals and varied cuisine based, of course, on the freshest seafood.

Exploring the island by car, from Le Morne in the south-west corners to Cap Malheureux in the north, will reveal a richness of colours, scents, panoramas, textures and sounds – particularly at carnival time in March. The intoxicating rhythms of the Sega dance are everywhere and its almost Latin American influences capture the true spirit of the island.

With all it has to offer, Mauritius has rightly gained its reputation as one of the premier beach destinations of the world. There is an abundance of internationally acclaimed hotels on the island. The choice ranges from secluded romantic hideaways to glamorous resorts complete with private pools and personal butlers.
