About Mauritius

Discovering the Paradise Island

Mauritius, an exquisite island spanning approximately 2,040 square kilometers in the vast Indian Ocean, stands as a testament to both natural history and human impact. Once the sole refuge of the iconic Dodo, an unfortunate victim of extinction due to the profound transformations brought about by human settlement, this unique island continues to captivate visitors with its picturesque landscapes and sun-kissed beaches, proudly earning the affectionate moniker 'Paradise Island.' Its pristine shores, with crystal-clear waters and soft sands, offer relaxation and adventures, blending natural beauty and cultural richness for an unforgettable experience.
