Protected by coral reefs, Mauritius offers the luxury of blue lagoons and pristine beaches; ideal for you to choose your dream vacation rental near your favourite white sandy beach.
Once well-known for luxury hotels and resorts, Mauritius has recently undergone a transformation in a different direction! Alternative lodgings and self-catering accommodation are the new trend and Mauritian accommodation owners are joining in! Accommodation found in prime locations, not directly on the beach, but not far behind is the secret formula that has led to the great success of holiday rentals. Not only are they more affordable, the ambience is calmer and they are less exposed to the weather.
All things considered, few would argue that Mauritius is a veritable dream destination to visit! Located below the tropic of Capricorn, this emerald island paradise is surrounded by the warm turquoise Indian Ocean which is home to colourful tropical fish and adorned with long stretches of white sandy beaches, protected by a barrier reef. Rare birds, exotic plant life and great local cuisine enriched by tasty tropical fruits and vegetables add to the fascination of the former “Ile de France”, which was once a sought after island and a strategic stronghold of the great colonial powers, and is known as the “Star and Key” of the vast Indian Ocean.
The island’s history is quite thrilling, involving a diversity of cultures, religions, as well as a series of wars and astonishing events. Visitors are often amazed by the wealth of museums, places of interest, natural attractions and religious monuments to discover and enjoy. Today, the hospitable multi-ethnic society that encompasses a range of religions, languages and cultures provides the backdrop for an interesting and unique tropical holiday.
