Mauritius is an Indian Ocean island best known for its beaches, lagoons and reefs. Around 800km east of Madagascar, Mauritius is part of the Mascarene Islands. A dream holiday destination, with its 160km of sandy beaches, surrounded by a clear blue azure sea, you will enjoy year-round sunshine, top-notch spas, championship golf courses and gourmet restaurants. The tourism hub Grand Baie, or little 'St Trop', in the north of the island is where you'll find great nightlife and plenty of excursions and adventures around this small but perfectly-formed island.
