Mauritius

Beyond the plains of East Africa and the forests of Madagascar lies a different paradise:

Mauritius – over 90 miles of immaculate white sand beaches and coral lagoons washed by the warm waters of the Indian Ocean.

The perfect setting for deep-sea fishing, sea walking, snorkelling, diving, boating and golf. But Mauritius is more than a beach. It features subtropical forests, rivers and waterfalls, with exotic flora and fauna, including the giant Victoria Regia water lilies in the Jardin Botanique de Pamplemousses.

Climate: Mauritius is blessed with consistently good weather year round with average temperatures of 29°C. The sea temperature varies between 22°C and 27°C year round. The rainy season from January to March. Average sunshine is 7 hours per day.
