Mauritius, an Indian Ocean island nation, is known for its beaches, lagoons and reefs. The mountainous interior includes Black River Gorges National Park, with rainforests, waterfalls, hiking trails and wildlife like the flying fox. Capital Port Louis has sites such as the Champs de Mars horse track, Eureka plantation house and 18th-century Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam Botanical Gardens.
Mauritius is almost entirely circled by coral reefs and has calm, crystal-clear water, making it an ideal place for watersports like snorkelling, diving, kayaking, swimming and more. However, unlike many islands, there is more to Mauritius than just breathtaking beaches. Enjoy a hiking trip through the national parks, feel the adrenaline of jumping 10,000 feet from the sky, watch the dolphins on a speedboat trip or explore the volcanoes and ruins dotted throughout the island.
