The island of Mauritius is part of the Mascarene Islands in the Indian Ocean. The islands lie to the east of Madagascar. The island of Mauritius takes its name from the Dutch Prince Maurice Van Nassau.

Perhaps, this tropical island is best known for luxury beach holidays, for which it is well deserved.
But, the adventurous traveller will also find excellent hiking, mountain climbing and superb scuba-diving opportunities.
