Mauritius Holidays

Mark Twain once remarked that God modelled Heaven on Mauritius, because this jewel of the Indian Ocean is truly paradise on earth. Mauritius is a relatively small island (no larger than Surrey) that bathes in the hot tub of the warm Capricorn Sea, in the coral reef belt of the Indian Ocean. Who can resist the golden, powder soft beaches that are embraced by coral reefs and fringed with exotic coconut palms that border the translucent sea lagoons. Its not all about the stunning coastline there are also dramatic mountain ranges, tropical forests, tumbling waterfalls, gently swaying fields of sugar cane, chic hotels, sophisticated cuisine, superb water sports and charming people with infectious smiles.



Aside from relaxing on the beach, engaging in watersports or enjoying a round of golf, Mauritius offers a host of alternative pursuits. Take a thrilling zip slide for a birds eye view of the forest canopy. Explore the luxuriant flora and fauna of the river, forest, cane fields and banana plantation, then cool off with a refreshing swim in a natural pool.
Experience an adventurous Quad biking activity in the most amazing natural setting, taking place in Yemen natural reserve park, which is host of two of the longest rivers on the island and a haven for all sorts of nature wildlife, or take a walk with the lions on the banks of Riviere du Rempart in this once in a life time experience.
