More People Choosing Mauritius As A Holiday Destination

When it comes to dream holiday destinations, nations such as Mauritius tend to top most people’s wish lists. Mauritius is a stunning tropical island destination in the heart of the magnificent Indian Ocean and is a firm favourite with celebrities and honeymooning couples. However, the popularity of Mauritius with all types of holidaymakers is evident with the news that tourism revenue for 2016 is set to be 1.8 per cent higher than original forecasts, which is great news for the Mauritian economy. After a surge in visitors in the first half of 2016, there is expected to be a further increase in arrivals in the second half of the year.

Boost to the Economy

In 2015, tourism earnings brought in 50.2 billion rupees for the economy. Nevertheless, it is expected that for 2016 that number will rise to 56 billion. With tourism one of Mauritius’ main sectors, this is excellent news for the tiny nation. There has been an increase of 9.9 per cent in visitor numbers for the first half of 2016 compared to the same period in 2015.

A Beautiful Holiday Destination

Here at Mauritius Holidays Direct, we are not surprised to hear that more and more people are choosing holidays to Mauritius. This stunning holiday location certainly has plenty to offer for holidaymakers of all ages.

Well known for its superb beaches and five-star resorts, Mauritius has been a firm favourite with the rich and famous for decades. Nonetheless, with more resorts offering all-inclusive deals, and the prices of flights dropping substantially in recent times, Mauritius has become more accessible to the average holidaymaker.

Year-round warm temperatures, picture-perfect sandy beaches, and resorts where every whim is catered to are Mauritius’ main selling points; however, this island nation has plenty more to offer.

Off the Beaten Track

Many of those travelling to destinations such as Mauritius never leave their resort, which is a real shame as they really are missing out. Those who want to experience the real Mauritius can enjoy bicycle tours of the islands, for example, where they can meet locals and learn more about local culture and traditions. The people of Mauritius are friendly and welcoming, and they love seeing tourists appreciating all their country has to offer.

It is also possible to trek and hike the many stunning sites in Mauritius. The Black River Gorges National Park is not to be missed as it is full of wonderful trails, picnic areas and some of the most spectacular scenery you will ever see.

While Mauritius is famed for being a paradise destination with pristine white beaches, it is the world beneath the ocean surface that offers the real joy for most holidaymakers. Here they can get up close and personal with some truly incredible marine life. Snorkelling and scuba diving are unsurprisingly two of the most popular activities with tourists and for good reason. The world beneath the surface is as amazing as it is unforgettable.
