With its fantastic climate, warm seas and variety of scenery, Mauritius easily justifies its status as a paradise island. Travelguru Cathy Bartrop takes a tour and shares the benefit of her first hand experience.

From the 16th century, the island served as a vital landfall for traders and its influences include Europe, Africa, China and India. This translates today into a fascinating multicultural society – evident in the mix of religions, architectural styles, varied cuisine and, of course, the people themselves. Explore temples, mosques and markets, or enjoy some wonderful diving and jungle trekking.

The island is renowned for its extremely high standard of hotels. There are world class resorts here, much favoured by celebrities, but there are also great value hotels. Two and three star properties are often overshadowed by the big name groups but punch well above their weight and will not disappoint. And of course, wherever you choose to stay you have some of the world’s most stunning beaches right on your doorstep.
