Mauritius is everything you ever imagined, and more. Dreamy beaches. A pleasant climate. Flora and fauna. Lush scenes. Indulgent hotels for every budget. Rich history. A hospitable people. Everything you might have heard about Mauritius is true, but the reality is the real thing.
Mauritius conjures up the image of golden sandy beaches and days spend on the shore just soaking up the sun. That is part of it, but the Indian Ocean Island offers so much more. I bring you the best highlights of my one week stay in Mauritius!
This little-known village in Riviere Noire District packs several scenic sights. First is the Seven Colored Earths, a sand dune – a geological surprise which somehow merges seven colors – red, brown, violet, green, blue, purple and yellow. Another fascinating fact about the dune is they never erode despite the heavy rains that occur in the area.
