Mauritius Islands – A Tropical Paradise



Mauritius , officially the Republic of Mauritius, is an island nation in the Indian Ocean about 2,000 kilometres (1,200 mi) off the southeast coast of the African continent, east of Madagascar.

The main island of Mauritius, where most of the population is concentrated, hosts the capital and largest city, Port Louis.

This beautiful island is one of the richest countries in Africa. It's also one of the leading tourist destinations in the world. Seven million visitors come across the year, including an estimated 100,000 British tourists.

The official languages in Mauritius are French and English.

Mauritius plays host to some of the most spectacular beaches in all of the Indian Ocean such as Grand Bay, Belle Mare, Blue Bay, La Morne and Tamarin and Flic en Flac.

The island is known for its amazing natural beauty. Mark Twain famously said that heaven was actually a copy of Mauritius.

Mauritius is the perfect destination for a romantic getaway with its idyllic beaches, hotels appealing to romance and stunning sceneries. Whether you are on holidays with your loved one or on your honeymoon, your stay in Mauritius promises to be unforgettable.


Mauritius is also suitable for families.

Whether at the hotel or during the journeys awaiting you, your stay in Mauritius promises to be memorable for young ones as well as for the young at heart.

Mauritius is the ideal destination for a return to nature. Forests such as the Black River Gorges National Park, Ebony Forest in Chamarel or the Bras d'Eau National Park in the East, will plunge the whole family into an unexpected world, in the heart of a preserved nature.

Leisure parks are very appealing to the more adventurous. From quad biking to zip lining, and safari to approach African animals, countless possibilities are available to families at the Gros Cailloux Park, Casela and La Vallée des Couleurs. Giant Aldabra tortoises and crocodiles are waiting for your visit at La Vanille reserve; the most impressed will probably not be the youngest ones…

The time spent at the hotel will never get boring neither. Hotels in Mauritius offer a wide choice of sea and land activities to do with the family. Some of them also offer art or cooking workshops, an opportunity to learn a little more about local cuisine while having fun with the family. Some children will prefer to spend time at the Kids’ Club with other kids of the resort while their parents relax on the beach or at the spa. Babysitter services are also usually available. The activities proposed are very diverse and resourceful, both indoors and outdoors, suitable for different age groups. Some resorts even organise outings on the surrounding islands for teenagers who will love playing adventurers!
