Places in Mauritius
Mark Twain once wrote that 'Mauritius was made first and then heaven, heaven being copied after Mauritius'. For the most part, it's true: Mauritius is rightly famed for its sapphire waters, powder-white beaches and luxury resorts. But there's so much more to Mauritius than the beach when it comes to attractions.
The North of Mauritius (Island)
Mauritius' tourism panache started in the north, and today there's plenty on offer for visitors. Although most of the area's spectacular beaches have been claimed by hotel construction, it's never hard to get away from it all and discover the little nooks that remain largely untouched by development.
The West of Mauritius (Island)
A world away from the shores of the north, Mauritius' western wonderland is the nation's most diverse coast. The bustling tourist hub of Flic en Flac may not be to everyone's taste, but the treasures that lie just beyond will satisfy even the pickiest holidaymaker.
