Mauritius is a remote island in the Indian Ocean with spectacular forested peaks and fringed by white sandy tropical beaches. Despite its remoteness, it is easily accessible by air from Europe, and South Africa. The island has a huge variety of luxury and affordable resorts, all of them with swimming pools and shaded sun loungers a few steps from the sea. And all offering a huge variety of water & land sports to keep the most active holiday maker busy. The majority of the resorts in Mauritius cater for families, making it the perfect destination if you are looking for an all-inclusive beach holiday.
Janine says “The highlight of a visit to Mauritius is the Creole people – warm and friendly, and always willing to go the extra mile to help out in any way that they can.”
