Interesting Things About Mauritius

Mauritius

Mauritius is a small island found in the Indian Ocean, off the East coast of Africa, right next to Madagascar. Does that make it a tropical paradise island? Yes! Let me just give you some examples…

  • There are only two seasons in Mauritius; Summer and Winter (but we shall call the latter “Not Quite Summer” as, you would have guessed, it’s almost as hot as in Summer!)
  • The People…With its 1.3 million inhabitants, Mauritius is an amazing rainbow of cultures and traditions. The way people cook, dress, speak and live is all different. You might think that it’s not a big deal but Mauritians all live in peace and harmony, despite their differences, almost like a big happy family. We don’t always agree with one another but we have been raised to accept the other and to learn from the other.
  • Now, let’s talk about THE Beaches; They are simply G-o-r-g-e-o-u-s! White sandy beaches, blue lagoons, breathtaking marine life and let’s not forget the awesome sunsets. I didn’t mean to make you jealous, I promise. [Read more…]
