Mark Twain once wrote, “Mauritius was made first and then heaven, and that heaven was copied after Mauritius”. It’s been a century since then, but the place remains as heavenly.
Better known as honeymooners’ paradise, the sun-kissed island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean is rightly famed for its sapphire blue waters and bubbly waves lapping at the white sandy beaches, and swaying palm trees dotting the background. With the sun shining warmly and gentle breeze carrying fresh ocean scent, Mauritius is undoubtedly what dreams are made of. As soon as you step out from the plane, you will quickly forget about all your worries and problems back home.
Of course, Mauritius isn’t just all about the beach, as a whole world of green awaits beyond the palm trees. Being a volcanic island, there are so many breathtaking summits and valleys to discover on foot. Go on hiking and trekking tours to explore the parks and reserves. Among them, don’t miss Black River Gorges National Park, created in 1994 to protect the native forests and its inhabitants.
While lying on the beach all day sounds tempting enough, Mauritius offers a wonderful range of activities for those who are up for some thrills. From snorkeling and diving to kite surfing, as well as boat excursions, these many activities will keep you occupied all day. If you prefer to be on the ground instead, head over to the golf course or horse ranch. Snuggle up with your loved one by the beach at the end of the busy day and watch the sun go down the horizon.
