The African island nation of Mauritius has so many beautiful beaches, it was impossible to pick just one. A coral reef surrounds the islands, making for some amazing snorkeling. You may also recall that the island was the only known home of the famously extinct Dodo bird, which met its demise shortly after European settlers discovered it. Mauritius is an Island with an area of about 1,865 kms and is under the Tropics of Capricorn. The island is mostly flat and surrounded by beautiful beaches but also has mountain ranges decorating the topography of this country.
The Island of Mauritius has much more to offer than only sea, sun beaches and tax haven incorporation services! To discover the true colors of Mauritius you have to let loose that adventurous streak in you. Popularly known as Paradise Island, you should make it a point to visit it. So book your tours in advance if you are planning to be there during the peak season to avoid disappointment as most of the hotels are overbooked. don’t miss out on the land and sea excursions either as these offer value for your money.
The beaches offer everything that you may have wished for but never even imagined back home. Walking on the beaches of Mauritius you will often come across exotic marine life like a shoal of small fish swimming right near you or tiny soft shell crabs scurrying home.
