Mauritius is also blessed with lush nature!
In addition to fine sandy beaches and a turquoise blue lagoon, Mauritius is a place of sweeping natural beauty like the dream tropical islands that we see in the movies. The South is known for its wild, unspoilt landscapes with breathtaking cliffs pounded by massive waves. Almost every road is lined with sugarcane fields. There are plenty of places for hiking and discovery, including the mountain range in the middle of the island, the aptly-named Lion Mountain, Piton de la Petite Rivière Noire – the highest peak in Mauritius at 828m –, and Le Morne Brabant, a historic mountain listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The island is also known for its 7 Colored Earth, but also for its breathtaking waterfalls that you can easily admire from a distance, with opportunities for a swim.
Mauritius, at the crossroads of cultures and religions
Mauritius has a rich cultural heritage with an eventful history and waves of migration from Africa, Asia and Europe. The people of the island are a harmonious mix of cultures and religions, including Creole, Hindu, Tamil, Muslim, Chinese and European. It is not surprising to find a church, a mosque or a pagoda a few meters away from a Hindu or Tamil temple. These places make for a pleasant visit and you will also find the cultural wealth of Mauritius in its varied cuisine, with dishes of Indian origin such as roti or dal-pouri that can be bought from roadside vendors, accompanied by all sorts of delicious fritters, the Muslim community’s traditional briyani bursting with spices and flavors, Chinese dumplings served in a hot broth or the famous Neapolitan shortbread covered with pink icing for dessert.
For all these reasons and more, tourists enjoy amazing holidays in Mauritius, which is why so many of them return every year. Some even decide to come and live under the Mauritian sun and take advantage of the undeniable benefits of this paradise island.
