Discover The Magic Of Mauritius An Island Of Emotion

Mauritius is the most developed of the Mascarene Islands. The island is well known for its natural beauty.

It was perfectly obvious why Mark Twain (1896) had declared: “You gather the idea that Mauritius was made first and then heaven was copied.” It was heaven. These words perfectly describe this extraordinarily beautiful island nation.

Mauritius is a volcanic island of lagoons and palm-fringed beaches off the coast of Africa, in the Indian Ocean roughly 800km (500m) east of Madagascar. It is like a pearl in the Indian Ocean, Mauritius can hardly be found in a world map, measuring 58km (36m) from north to south and 47km (29m) from east to west. As a country, it includes the islands of Mauritius, the inhabited island of Rodrigues (east of the principal island), the islands of Agalega and the archipelago Saint Brandon. Its capital is Port Louis.
