Mauritius Travel Guide
Plan Your Mauritius Vacation
Beautiful lagoons, radically shaped volcanic mountains, and a cultural cocktail of Euro-Asian inhabitants make Mauritius—a small nation about half the size of Australia's Kangaroo Island and some 2,000 km (1,242 miles) east of the African continent—more than just a swanky resort getaway. Although you can relax on some of the world's most breathtaking beaches, you'll also find grand plantation mansions that evoke the island's colonial past, Hindu shrines adorned with marigolds, national parks abundant with exotic animals and plants, and delicious cuisine that fuses Creole and French flavors.
