What Makes Mauritius The Perfect Holiday Destination

Mauritius has long been associated with luxurious white beaches occupied by the rich and famous for their annual holidays. However, this beautiful Indian Ocean paradise is now becoming an increasingly popular destination for those who are not living in the public spotlight. Mauritius has become much more accessible in recent years, and many people are travelling to these tropical shores to experience a taste of what this fantastic nation has to offer. For those who want a truly exotic holiday in one of the most picturesque locations on the planet, Mauritius is the place to visit. Moreover, while the beaches are one of the biggest draws for many tourists, there are plenty of other reasons to visit Mauritius for your next holiday.

Enjoying the Beaches

Most resorts in Mauritius are situated along the stunning coast, meaning guests can access miles of white sand and warm tropical waters from their hotel. The beaches are where most tourists will spend their time; with most of the beaches being public, it is possible to walk for miles along the fabulous coastline. Many Mauritian beaches have beachfront bars from which delicious drinks are served, and sunset strolls are especially popular with couples.

Multicultural Society

Mauritius has one of the most multicultural societies in the world, with a mix of European, African, Asian, and Indian influences. The nation has a number of churches and temples sitting side by side while the food is a mix of dishes inspired by various influences from around the world. There are a few languages spoken in Mauritius including Creole, Cantonese, and English, and this eclectic mix is one of its biggest appeals.

Beyond the Resorts

Many people imagine days spent luxuriating by a huge pool when they think ofMauritius holidays but, beyond the top class resorts, there is so much to see and do in the country. Those who want to explore the islands will be astounded at the many rainforests and spectacular waterfalls, with Black River Gorges one of the most popular tourist attractions.

Port Louis is the capital city of Mauritius, and it offers plenty of opportunity for some local shopping. Many visitors will enjoy a day in the capital searching for local produce and handmade items to take back as a memento of their time spent in the beautiful island paradise. For those who want to truly experience the real flavour of Mauritius, the Central Market in Port Louis has many food stalls with local fresh produce available.

There are many excellent bars and restaurants around the islands at which tourists can enjoy typical local dishes including stir-fries and curries, and there are roadside kiosks serving traditional fare as well.
