Travel in Mauritius

The Island of Mauritius. If there is such a place as paradise on earth, then that place must be the island of Mauritius. The gentle lapping of the waves along the heavenly beaches, exotic perfumes and the light breeze under a blazing sun... Mauritius is truly a haven of peace lost in the immensity of the Indian Ocean, off the coast of Madagascar. The climate, the white sandy beaches and the crystal-clear waters of the ocean are more than enough to please those looking for somewhere to chill out in style, for both tourists and locals alike. The Mauritians are incredibly welcoming, friendly and always have a ready smile. The music of their creole accents added to their generosity and hospitality reflect the local proverb: "Le cœur n'a pas de rides" (The heart has no wrinkles). You can see the giant water-lilies in the Pamplemousses Botanical Gardens, dive into the ocean and explore its underwater wonders, explore the nature reserves of the Vallée de Ferney and the Ile aux Aigrettes. That's just a taster of what awaits you when you travel to the island of Mauritius.
