Dolphins glide and turtles feed in the aquamarine waters of the Indian Ocean surrounding Mauritius. You can snorkel over coral seascapes and, helped by a dramatic ocean drop-off, explore some memorable dive sites. Inland, hiking trails weave through the rainforest of the Chamarel Mountains, opening out onto waterfalls and inky lagoons. A rich tapestry of Indian, French, African and Chinese influences have made their way to the island, creating a nuanced culinary identity. And, the streets of Port Louis are flanked by colonial villas, while smaller villages host busy markets and cosy cafes.
