Mauritius has all the exoticism of the most exotic resorts of the world, away from the highrise concrete jungles and pollution of our modern day cities. The island is embraced by a spectacular coral reefs which transform the mighty Indian Ocean into lagoons as calm as a baby’s -bath lined with golden powder-soft beaches and fringed with exotic coconut palms and Casuarinas. The lagoon waters are a blend of exotic shades of blue, green, turquoise and indigo and are astonishingly translucent.
The people of Mauritius are also unique in their diversity : Indians, Creoles, Muslims, French and Chinese. They are beautiful people with infectious smiles and disarming personalities. The Sega, a local dance derived from African music and Creole lyrics creates an atmosphere that even the most inhibited visitor finds it difficult to stay away from the dance floor. No wonder Mark Twain exclaimed on his visit to the island : ‘You gather the idea that Mauritius was made first and then heaven; and that heaven was copied after Mauritius’.
