Your first stay on Mauritius

If you haven’t been to Mauritius before it can be hard to imagine the beauty and variety on offer when you finally arrive on the island. This recent article in Surrey Life, gives a bit more insight for newbies on what you’ll discover.

Mauritius scenery

“The first thing that strikes you as you land on this droplet in the Indian Ocean is the dramatic scenery,” says the piece. “Handsome mountain peaks covered in emerald green grasses and swathes of sugar cane drop straight into cerulean blue waters – an everyday view from just about anywhere on the island. Brochures colourfully illustrate dozens of super-swish hot els, which have sprung up along its 110-mile coastline. Yet despite the development, it doesn’t feel spoilt or built-up, and the island’s best natural resource – its beautiful beaches – remain pristine and unspoilt.”

The writer goes on to discover the activities and experiences around the island. “Mauritius is ringed by the world’s longest unbroken coral reef, a blissful fact for divers and snorkelers,” it says. “There are sightseeing opportunities inland too, including Grand Bassin Lake (a place of Hindu pilgrimage), rafting on Black River Gorge and a picnic in Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam Botanical Garden close to capital Port Louis – the oldest botanical garden in the Southern Hemisphere. You can go zip wiring, canyoning, sky diving, deep sea fishing, or island hop across to Gabriel for the day.”
