Relax on gorgeous white sands and look out over the crystal clear ocean as far as the eye can see, or dive and snorkel beneath the water’s surface to discover the family of colourful marine life living amongst the coral. With so many amazing beaches to choose from, it is the perfect place to sit on a beach and watch a sunset with a cocktail balanced in your hand.

Discover the vibrant island of Mauritius, home to a host of cultures and welcoming smiles. Mauritius's beautiful beaches are a key draw - and with over 160km-worth, including a calm lagoon almost entirely encircled by coral reef, you won't have to go far to find one. Combine this with its luxurious accommodation and the plentiful activities to enjoy day in, day out.  But most are perfectly content by swimming in clear blue waters while soaking up the dazzling Mauritian sun.
