With its palm-lined beaches and warm Indian Ocean waves lapping the sand, get ready to submerge yourself in paradise. Choose to spend your days relaxing on beaches in search of cocktails and coconuts or take a couple of swings on the most epic golf courses in the Southern Hemisphere. And for those who crave a little more, venture inland where you will discover lushly carpeted volcanic peaks, fields of swaying sugar cane, impressive rivers and waterfalls, and some fabulously friendly locals. Mauritius holidays have something for everyone.
