Discovering Mauritius: A Hidden Gem in the Indian Ocean May 3, 2023
Mauritius, known officially as the Republic of Mauritius, is an island nation in the Indian Ocean, located off the southeast coast of the African continent. It is a stunning volcanic island brimming with lagoons and palm-fringed beaches, with coral reefs surrounding most of the coastline.
The island has earned its reputation as a top vacation destination thanks in part to its lush forests, breathtaking waterfalls, and unique wildlife – together with its rugged mountains, turquoise lagoons, and talcum-like white beaches.
While many visitors focus their sights on the dazzling beaches and aquamarine waters, there is so much to discover throughout Mauritius. Guests can enjoy an amazing selection of activities, attractions, and places of interest – from traditional museums, national parks, jungle interiors and reserves to extreme activities, river trekking, zip lines, sea cruises, island hopping, and more – you will find it all in Mauritius!
