Why Choose Mauritius island for holidays and not somewhere else!
Unless you have been living under a rock for the past few years, you are bound to have heard of Mauritius. It is the place where tourists go to experience royalty, where foodies go to taste the best flavors from all over the world, and where nature enthusiasts go to witness the natural beauty and the best biodiversity that the world has to offer.
The answer to that question is very simple: because Mauritius can offer everything you want and need (even the things you aren't aware of!). Yes, EVERYTHING! These include:
Whether you are visiting a place alone or with friends and family, safety is probably going to be a big concern for you. So, make the safest possible choice and come to Mauritius, where the crime rate is extremely low and rules and laws have been made with security and protection of tourists in mind.
Mauritius's beautiful beaches are a key draw - and with over 160km-worth, including a calm lagoon almost entirely encircled by coral reef, you won't have to go far to find one. All beaches are public, with parking areas and toilets, although hotels and apartment complexes have subtly claimed the best ones. Mauritius has some of the best beaches in the world, some of which include the Flic en Flac, Grand Bay Public Beach, La Cuvette Beach, Blue Bay Beach, Belle Mere and many more. The clear blue water, the shining sand, warm sun and relaxing breeze will accept your body with the warmth and comfort of a baby's crib... Warning! There is a probability that once you spend time in one of these beaches, you will never want to leave Mauritius!
Famous for its biodiversity, the country is home to some of the rarest jewels of both the animal and plant kingdom. Due to certain factors, including the islands being originated from volcanic activity, age of the islands, lack of terrestrial contact with other locations, and unique terrain, it remains home to species that have almost remained, survived and thrived without any foreign interference.
Mauritius has 691 indigenous flowering plants, of which 273 are endemic; 3 indigenous mammals of which 1 is endemic; 12 indigenous birds, of which 9 are endemic; and 12 indigenous reptiles of which 11 are endemic. Of the total forest cover, only 2 per cent are native species. Mauritius is designated a "Centre of Plant Diversity" and is part of the Madagascar and Indian Ocean islands biodiversity hotspot. Due to its location, isolation, age and varied topography, Mauritius has a high level of endemic species. These include 39 per cent of plants, 80 per cent of non-marine birds, 80 per cent of reptiles and 40 per cent of bat species.
An ongoing effort to protect as much wild life and local flora and fauna as possible in their natural condition is helping to preserve these treasures of Mauritius.
The tropical climate remains wonderful almost all months of the year, making Mauritius an extremely fun place to hang around. No need to worry about the harsh winters any more - this is a place where sunshine is almost eternal and temperatures never soar to a level that it becomes difficult to handle. The temperate climate also ensures that you can visit Mauritius any part of the year and yet still be almost guaranteed to have perfect weather to spend your time outdoors as well as indoors.
Mauritius is home to a mixture of different people of all ethnicities, culture and religion. However, they live in perfect harmony unlike the rest of the world. This has created a sub culture limited to the island that is different from anywhere in the world. The culture has been influenced by native Africans, the British, the French, and Asians including people from sub-continent and China notably. This not only provides a rare mix of human interaction; it offers diversity in all cultural activities. The music, food, dance and society rituals have formed on their own creating a unique, diverse and interesting mix. The vibrant culture also revolves around the hospitality of the locals who are renowned for their laid back and comfortable approach in life. So, it doesn't matter which part of the world you are from, you will always be welcomed here with open arms...
The blend of diverse cultures and religions brought by the immigrant population from their ancestral countries has also resulted in their festivities being celebrated here, in a spirit of peace and harmony throughout the year including the famous festivals of Cavadi, Divali, Father Laval, Ganesh Chaturthi, Holi, Eid-Ul-Fitr, Ougadi and the Spring Festival.
The two official languages of Mauritius are English and French, and almost all residents here are fluent in both. However, as mentioned before, the presence of people from many parts of the world helped spreading other languages as well. This is a good news for all visitors since they can easily communicate here without much fear of miscommunication.
Modern day Mauritius offers tourists with a wonderful opportunity to spend a few days away from their busy life, relax and enjoy all the treasures that are available in this beautiful island. The growing tourism industry has adjusted and adapted to the demands of modern luxury and provides visitors with a great opportunity to witness a truly remarkable mixture of creations by God and Man... the only piece of paradise on Earth.
