Mauritius is a beautiful island in the centre of the Indian Ocean perfect for a beach holiday and a renowned honeymoon destination. Volcanic peaks, cliffs, gorges and waterfalls, as well as fields of sugar cane and pineapples are found in the lush green interior, with swaying palms and white sandy beaches on the surrounding coast. Home to many rare and exotic plants and birds, with colourful underwater marine life on the coral reefs, this island has really been blessed by nature.
The island is 720 square miles in size and is a unique blend of cultures as its people are a mix of Africans, Indians, Chinese and Europeans which is reflected in the language, religion and especially the cuisine.
Mauritius is noted for its 5 star luxury hotels and resorts, most of which offer a full range of water sports such as water-skiing, scuba diving, deep-sea fishing, jet skiing and even parasailing. It is an excellent choice for a honeymoon and weddings can also be arranged for those who wish to tie the knot on a tropical beach beside clear turquoise waters.
With no pollution, no high rise hotels and a warm welcome from the friendly, easy-going people, Mauritius keeps visitors returning year after year.
