Thick green forests cover rugged mountain peaks...

Mauritius holidays will take you to a breathtaking island lying just off the east coast of Madagascar in the beautiful Indian Ocean. This exotic island could be just about as close to paradise as you'll get with palm fringed beaches, turquoise waters and striking coral reefs. Thick green forests cover rugged mountain peaks with sleeping volcanoes looking down over acres of sugarcane fields. This picture perfect island offers fantastic beach holidays with a landscape just waiting to be explored. Mauritius has a fascinating multi cultural history beginning with Dutch origins, African slaves were then brought over by the French, Indian labourers arrived after slavery was abolished and a period of British rule followed, before Mauritius finally gained its independence in 1968.

With Chinese and Muslim traders entering the mix, the wonderful diverse culture of today boasts a fascinating blend of French colonial houses, Indian temples and a cuisine that absolutely delights with international delicacies. Holidays in Mauritius offer long sweeping bays and crystal clear waters meaning you never really need leave the beach all day. Water sports are available for those that want them with the warm tropical breezes providing excellent conditions for windsurfing and parasailing, while snorkelling and scuba diving are a fantastic way to see the underwater delights of the incredible coral reef.

Mauritius is still relatively unspoilt...

It would be a shame not to explore this wonderful island while you are here though, Nature Reserves, Bird Sanctuaries, Botanical Gardens and Marine Parks all offer the chance to see many tropical species in their natural habitat, with the endangered Pink Pigeon a top attraction at Casela Bird Park and the worlds last surviving Dodo, now stuffed, on display in the Port Louis Natural History Museum. Port Louis is also home to Mauritius' very own distinctive Chinatown, full of colourful shops and authentic restaurants. The vibrant market is also worth a visit where the friendly locals offer handmade wares and traditional souvenirs for sale. This stunning island is home to some lush green Golf Courses and you'll find it hard to play a more picturesque game of golf in your life.

Mauritius is still relatively unspoilt and the coast is dotted with traditional fishing villages where you can enjoy the friendly banter as the daily catch is brought ashore, then watch while the aromatic menus are brought to life before your very eyes and you sample some of the culinary delights this island has to offer while enjoying the warm hospitality of the wonderful Mauritius people. Accommodation on Mauritius holidays is very much hotel based with luxurious resorts spread across the island. Many have first class facilities with pampering health spas on site. What better way to end a lazy day on the beach than with a relaxing massage and spa treatment.
