If you’re near a window, look south-eastwards for a moment. There, 6,000 miles over the horizon, deep in the Indian Ocean, lie the blindingly white palm-edged beaches, blue lagoons, coral reefs, emerald sugar-cane fields and purple mountain peaks of Mauritius. Another world? Yes. But in just 12 hours you could be there on one of our Mauritius holidays.
When it comes to today’s faraway holiday preference, a holiday in Mauritius is definitely up there with the leaders. Nature has done its bit, of course, with exotic tropical scenes that will etch themselves on your memory.
