Mauritius: Travel Information
The island of Mauritius is more than a peaceful heaven floating in the warm Indian Ocean. This small volcanic island is surrounded by magnificent coral reefs and an abundance of exotic sea life. It's a most exotic island, with lush subtropical forests, over 80 different types of palm trees and craters and basalt rocks littering its interior.
The island’s quaint towns and villages offer visitors an opportunity to see another side of Mauritian life, with fisherman setting out early to find their daily catch, quaint shops and restaurants and the carefree, laid-back lifestyle of its people making a holiday here a most relaxing experience.
Its historic capital, Port Louis, still retains much of its charm, with many interesting landmarks and a bustling marketplace selling every exotic spice imaginable and a variety of leather goods, gifts and souvenirs. A recent addition is the modern, exclusive Caudan waterfront complex, the island's premier commercial, shopping and entertainment centre, which includes sophisticated shops and restaurants, a glittering Casino and a cinema complex.
So if you want to combine a beach vacation with exotic scenery and a different type of culture, Mauritius is for you. It’s also an ideal destination for a stopover enroute to Africa or after an African safari.
