About Mauritius

.

East of Madagascar and far from the madding crowds, Mauritius is not just an island outpost in the Indian Ocean. In fact most visitors would agree it is not of this world at all. ‘You gather the idea that Mauritius was made first, and then heaven, and that heaven was copied after Mauritius,’ said Mark Twain. As in most things, he was right. Multi-ethnic, multicultural and multilingual, Mauritius is the ultimate indulgence destination. Spend the days flirting with friendly dolphins and frilly coral, and balmy evenings indulging in Asian and Indian-inspired banquets.

Sugarcane, not tourism, is the top money earner for Mauritius.

If you find yourself a tad too relaxed, venture into the busy mercantile capital of Port Louis for a shopping spree, or take a hike in the dramatic forest of Black River Gorges Natural Park. Afterwards simply do nothing at all. This is one idea of heaven.

The now-extinct dodo bird was only found on Mauritius. It is still the country’s national symbol.
