Cheap Yet Luxurious Mauritius Holidays!

 

Set adrift off the east coast of Africa, in the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean, Mauritius is one of the world's most spectacular tropical paradises. Nature has looked kindly on the island, bestowing it with some 330 kilometres of shimmering sandy coastline, one of the world's largest unbroken coral reefs, a wealth of rare wildlife, and a picturesque interior of sugar cane fields, mountains, cascading waterfalls and lush forests. It's no wonder Mauritius has been a favourite with the rich and famous for many years, and some of the world's most luxurious hotels, secluded beaches and tranquil lagoons can be found here. mauritius

On the dazzling east coast, you'll find the legendary Ile aux Cerfs, a stunning lagoon endowed with soft white sand and warm, clear waters. But this is just one of many inviting places to enjoy a dip in the Indian Ocean. If you can drag yourself away from the beach, take a trip to the lively capital, Port Louis. Or you could lose yourself in the stunning countryside of the interior — Mauritius is a surprisingly varied destination, full of colour and character, and a warm welcome will always await you. Come evening, enjoy delicious freshly caught seafood and locally produced rum to the soundtrack of the Sega, a traditional form of Mauritian music and dance.
