Mauritius

Once famous for being the home of the dodo, Mauritius now competes with the Seychelles to attract wealthy couples and honeymooners to upscale resorts. It is a stable democracy and has a huge amount to offer visitors, despite its small size. Naturally it has a very well-developed tourist industry. It can offer beautiful, clear seas, white sand beaches, interesting villages, a variety of hikes and wildlife such as giant tortoises.

Kayaking, rock climbing, water skiing, swimming with dolphins and many other activities are available. English and French are widely spoken. The capital, Port Louis, is a well-developed city and has some interesting architecture.
