Islands in the Indian Ocean

Categories: Mauritius

The island world in the Indian Ocean offers tourist highlights. Thus, a trip to Mauritius is always worthwhile if one wants to explore exotic worlds during the holidays. The island is located in the proximity of Madagascar and in front of the coasts of Africa. Whether from Frankfurt or Munich, one takes the plane to the Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport in Mauritius, that is only a few kilometres from the island capital Port Louis. But the island can also be reached by ship, whereby many vacationers like to experience this within a cruise.

A bathing holiday in the island Mauritius is a restful holiday fun, as many vacationers indulge themselves. But those who only spend their days at the beaches will miss an exciting island world and an exotic culture that will impress. Here, one should not only explore the main island Mauritius, also the other islands that belong to Mauritius as Rodrigues have a flora and fauna that is always worthwhile to do an excursion. Of course, the warm temperatures in Mauritius attract the vacationers and those who want to visit a region with many hours of sunshine will always have made the right choice with Mauritius.

For those who love nature, the excursion to the Black Gorges National Park is simply a duty, but also a natural beauty as the Tamarin waterfall should not be missed during the holiday in Mauritius. And those who first visited the amazing landscape of Coloured Earth will keep Mauritius with its flora and fauna in good memory. A nice motive for holiday pictures is the Rochester waterfall and those who stay here should admire the sportive cliff jumpers.

Indeed, Mauritius does not have the highest mountains to offer, but those who climb the Trou aux Cerfs will be pleased about a wonderful view to the island. Here, the vacationer should also look into the fascinating crater and enjoy the green nature that is available here. At the most northern tip of the island Mauritius there is Cape Malheureux, a picturesque coastal strip of the island that offers a great view to the Indian Ocean. Of course, one should visit the most beautiful beaches of the island Mauritius and spend some relaxing hours here.

There, beaches as the beach of Pointe aux Pimenrsach, the Choisy Beach or the beach at Coin de Mire are waiting for the swimmer and sunbathers. But also Ile aux Cerfs and Ile de Morne can offer wonderful beach sections for the water sportsmen. If one arrived with small children, then the lagoon at Pereybere is an ideal place for bathing, as here, the beach only falls very shallowly into the sea and thus, also small children can splash here without any concerns.

Those who have the chance to visit Mauritius at a time where beautiful festivities take place should take the opportunity and for example admire the pilgrims at the Shivaratree festival.
