A tropical island of colour and contrasts
The island of Mauritius is famed for its pristine white beaches and clear Indian Ocean waters. The stream of sunshine is occasionally interrupted by short, sharp shower that brings out the scent of the frangipani. Experience the vivid colours and cultural contrasts of this special island on your Mauritius holiday.
Once at the crossroads of the African and Arabian trade routes, the island of Mauritius has a diverse cultural history. Port Louis, the capital city, is the perfect blend of modern and colonial. Its unique hybrid of architectural styles is a product of Dutch, French and British settlers, with influences from India and East Africa. You can stroll through bustling outdoor markets, enjoy the Caudan Waterfront or visit one of the many museums. The vibrant art scene is captured in the Blue Penny Museum right on the city's waterfront.
For those in search of adventure, take a drive across the spectacular island. Here you will see Hindu temples covered in deities rising out of fields shoulder-high with sugarcane. We recommend taking the historic tea route across the island, visiting plantations en route.
