Mauritius, Réunion & Seychelles

Blessed with superlative landscapes and idyllic beaches, and rich in activities and culinary experiences, Mauritius, Réunion and the Seychelles offer the best cure for the blues. These Indian Ocean islands are some of the most sought-after on the planet, encircled by beaches of astonishing beauty and backed by forested interiors ripe for exploration. The waters that surround the islands have a color all their own – a blend of turquoise, lapis lazuli and emerald – and shelter extraordinary marine riches. The food, too, is a highlight of any visit here, alongside the cultural mosaic of life out in the ocean. Throw in some of the most luxurious retreats anywhere on earth, and it becomes clear that this could be one place where the moniker "paradise" doesn't overstate things.
