Our Mauritius holidays packages take you to one the most beautiful island nations in the world. Situated in the Indian Ocean about 2,000 km off the southeastern coast of East Africa and around 1750km from Seychelles, Mauritius was named after Prince Maurice van Nassau by the first Dutch colonists in 1638.
What is Mauritius best known for?
Mauritius is a multi-dimensional holiday destination that is as ideal for families with kids as it is for couples, honeymooners, solo travellers, and just about anyone in between.
Independent since 1968, this island nation is known for its sapphire waters, powder-white beaches and world-class holiday resorts. But there is so much more attractions in Mauritius than the beach. It is the kind of destination that rewards even the smallest attempts at exploration. There’s nature walks in the forested and mountainous interior and world-class snorkeling and diving offshore.
There are catamaran cruises to near-perfect small islands and excursions to botanical gardens. Mauritius is also a fabulous destination for culinary adventures with amazing wildlife viewing thrown in.
And the true Mauritius away from the beach resorts – a mixture of different cultures and quiet fishing villages – is never far away. You could also go market shopping at the Capital, Port Louis and pick up a few colourful reminders of your island holiday in Mauritius.
