Mauritius, or the Republic of Mauritius, is a multi-cultural island nation located about 2,000 kilometres from Africa in the Indian Ocean and southeast of Seychelles. With palm-fringed beaches, aquamarine waters, imposing mountains and lush national parks, Mauritius is popular for a honeymoon as well as family holidays.
Mauritius is almost entirely circled by coral reefs and has calm, crystal-clear water, making it an ideal place for watersports like snorkelling, diving, kayaking, swimming and more. However, unlike many islands, there is more to Mauritius than just breathtaking beaches. Enjoy a hiking trip through the national parks, feel the adrenaline of jumping 10,000 feet from the sky, watch the dolphins on a speedboat trip or explore the volcanoes and ruins dotted throughout the island.
Mauritius is a paradise for the palate, with its street food ranking in the world's top 10. Because of its history of migrations, the cuisine of Mauritius is inspired by French, Indian, Chinese, and African dishes. Faratas, boulettes (dumplings), Dholl puris, gateaux piments (chilli cakes), boiled or fried noodles, and samoussas are some must-try. To get the authentic feel of the island, visit the colourful markets, temples and colonial mansions.
The capital city Port Louis is the hub of the urban Mauritian lifestyle. Although small, the island is divided into four regions (north, south, east and west) as it experiences microclimate and varied landscapes and lifestyles depending on these regions. Experiencing a tropical climate, Mauritius can be visited almost throughout the year.
