Mauritius has a deserved reputation for service and quality which are unsurpassed. The standards of accommodation, facilities and service are very high and there are many top class hotels. Evening entertainment is centred around the hotels and mainly includes local folklore shows, Creole music and sega dancing. White sands, waving palms, a warm clear blue ocean, magnificent food, water skiing, scuba diving, big game fishing, paragliding, windsurfing, snorkelling, breathtaking scenery and Mauritian hospitality awaits you, for Mauritian’s hospitality comes naturally, it is one of the reasons the hotels are the finest.

Mauritius is the ideal destination for South Africans, since South Africans  do not need a drivers’ license or a visa to visit Mauritius.  Amazingly is it only a four hour flight from Johannesburg and Mauritius offers fantastic service and deals on their official airline: Air Mauritius.  Air Mauritius has achieved its 17th World Travel Award in the Indian Ocean’s Leading Airline category for the fourth consecutive year.  Air Mauritius has been at the heart of trade and tourism for more than 40 years and has daily flights directly from Johannesburg to Mauritius and  two flights weekly out of Durban and Cape Town directly to Mauritius.

In January 2011 Air Mauritius South Africa will be launching Smart Season Value Proposition for all year travel to Mauritius whereby consumers will benefit and enjoy value added benefits incorporating air and hotel benefits!

Sometimes termed as paradise on earth, due to its sheer beauty and miraculous sceneries, the island of Mauritius radiates charm and exquisiteness when it comes down to its heavenly beautiful beaches. The beauty of the clear waters of the turquoise lagoons is such that even poets would not be able to capture its charms with mere words.

Pereybere, one the most beautiful beaches in the world is the choice of many. It is considered to be one of the best bathing spots in the island and it is widely visited by the young people during their holidays and weekends. If you have been to Mauritius but missed the chance of being to Ile aux Cerfs then your visit has not been worthwhile. This small island can be reached by boats from Pointe Maurice and the beaches are splendid.

Baie du Tamarin is highly visited by fervent surfers, since gigantic waves roll the bay almost over the whole year. Cap Malhereux is another tranquil spot which offers one of the most splendid scenes with its fantastic view of the little islands, Ile plate, Ile Ronde and Coin De Mire. The beautifully situated graveyard and the chapel on the beach are usually the favourite target of photographers. Trou-aux-Biches, Riviere Noire, Pointe-aux-piments are among the other lustrous beaches in Mauritius.

Mauritius cuisine is as cosmopolitan as its culture. You will find an eclectic mix of Creole, Chinese, Indian and Muslim food.

tropical island.
