Overview

Our illustrated travel guide will take you to Mauritius, a small, multicultural island in the Indian Ocean, east of Madagascar and southeast of the Seychelles. Well known as a holiday destination for beach and resort loving tourists, it possesses a wide range of natural and man-made attractions, enjoys a sub-tropical climate with clear warm sea waters, attractive beaches, tropical fauna and flora complemented by a multi-ethnic and cultural population that is friendly and welcoming. Mauritius also has well-designed hotels as well as reliable services and infrastructure.

Recreational activities in Mauritius are varied. Water sports are facilitated as the island is surrounded with coral reef, providing relatively shallow and calm water. Activities such as deep-sea fishing, surfing, windsurfing, water-skiing, yachting and submarine rides are available. Land-based leisure activities include golf, tennis, skiing, sky diving, deer hunting, quad (ATV) riding, mountain biking, abseiling, zip lining, horse riding and trekking.
The island of Mauritius was also the only known home of the extinct dodo bird!
