Looking for a beach-adventure-culture combo holiday? Mauritius may just be your next holiday destination!
Holidays to Mauritius are up there when it comes to tropical breaks. The island bolsters its glistening-white beach count with fusion food and rain forest tours.
At first glance, Mauritius looks like a close relative of the Caribbean Islands. Around 1,200 miles from the east coast of Africa, the island’s hemmed by 330 kilometres of spotless white beaches. Take to the waters, meanwhile, and you'll spot pods of dolphins playing. The south, west and east coasts are defined by top-drawer beaches – one of the longest stretches of sand is Belle Mare, which borders a coral-protected lagoon. In the north, the shallow bays at Balaclava and Calodyne give themselves over to watersports like snorkelling and kite-surfing.
But Mauritius has plenty much more than just the beaches to offer. Beyond the beaches you'll find an abundance of natural history. The 800-metre-high mountains and forests in the interior are home to some of the world’s rarest animals – you can spot geckos and tropical birds in Porte Lafayette’s national park. The island’s also ring-fenced by one of the largest unbroken barrier reefs in the world, so the scuba diving opportunities are on a par with the Maldives.
