Mauritius Links - Tourism and Attractions Links

(Mauritius, MU, Africa)

The island nation of the Republic of Mauritius sits in the Indian Ocean, directly to the south-east of the continent of Africa. Within this archipelago, the island known as Mauritius serves as the largest and principal island, while the additional islands of Agalega, Rodrigues and St. Brandon are also very much of note to holidaying tourists.

When Portuguese explorers first arrived at the very beginning of the 16th century, they found that there were no people living on these islands. The following century, the Dutch arrived and began to settle here, and in the early 19th century, the British exerted their powers and took control.

Today, tourism is something of a mainstay for Mauritius, thanks to its tropical climate and beautiful beaches, such as the Trou aux Biches within the district of Pamplemousses. Other notable beaches include those of Belle Mare, Blue Bay, Flic en Flac, Grand Baie, Gris Gris, Ile aux Cerfs, Mont Choisy, Pereybere and Tamarin.
