Mauritius Vacations

Mauritius is an island that sits in the Indian Ocean to the east of the African continent and the larger island of Madagascar. It's history includes occupation by the Dutch, French and British when the island was used as a strategic military position for countries and traders exploring the Indian Ocean. Today Mauritius is known for the coral reefs that surround the island and high end tourist resorts located on tropical white sandy beaches lined with swaying coconut palms. It is a multicultural society with Indian, French, Chinese, Creole and African descendants forming the working society on the island. In spite of being located in the middle of the Indian Ocean, Mauritius is also known as one of the most prosperous countries in Africa and the place to go to find the perfect white sandy beach to relax in luxury.
