About Mauritius

Located in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Africa, Mauritius is a melting pot of peoples, cultures, landscapes, fragrances, colours and beliefs. It’s an earthly paradise just waiting to welcome you and offer you unforgettable experiences. With its many surprising facets, this little gem in the Indian Ocean is truly unique.

Surrounded by a magnificent coral reef, the island’s 330km-long, sheltered coastline is graced with endless white sand beaches. As the historical meeting point between Europe, Africa and the Middle East, Mauritius is both fascinating and enjoys a balmy climate year-round.

From its verdant tea plantations to its crystal clear lagoons and vast expanses of sugarcane, Mauritius’ landscapes are a treasure, and its views are breath-taking. Its villages are a testament to its colonial past, as are the island’s charming historical estates.
