The tropical gardens and infinity pools of chic luxury resorts in Mauritius give way to dazzling sands lapped by azure waters. Holidays to Mauritius offers five star hospitality, a melting pot of cultures and idyllic tropical scenery.
Mauritius lies in the middle of the Indian Ocean, 625 miles off the east coast of Madagascar. It boasts a coral-fringed coastline of white sandy beaches, pretty bays and shimmering azure waters. Inland, it’s a mix of jagged mountain scenery countered by lush green sugar plantations.
The coral reefs form a protected barrier for a series of crystal-clear lagoons. Thus holidays to Mauritius offers long safe, sandy beaches and superb water sports on these calm waters. As well as scuba diving on the reefs and deep-sea fishing beyond. Non-divers can do helmet and weights for an undersea walk. Or take a catamaran cruise or enjoy a glass-bottom boat trip perhaps with some snorkeling. Most resort hotels offer the full range of watersports. Such as water-skiing, windsurfing, scuba diving, kayaking, kite-surfing and hobie cat or laser sailing. Most non-motorized activities are complimentary.
Mauritius holidays are also justly famed for their top notch hospitality and friendliness. Nothing is too much trouble in this relaxed cultural melting pot! Diverse cultures coexist happily. And the various religious rites and festivals lend an additional fascination and colour to life on the island.
There’s an endless variety of things to do in Mauritius. Marvelous shopping in Grande Baie, spectacular beaches and an array of water sports for beginners and experts alike.
