Mauritius is an island republic 550 km east of Madagascar in the middle of the Indian Ocean. It is known for its beautiful beaches and luxurious accommodation for the tourist and traveller and for its unique flora and fauna. The island is a multicultural democracy, the population being a harmonious mixture of immigrants from Africa, Europe, the Indian subcontinent and China. Mauritius boasts a pleasant 16 to 30°C climate all year round, and owing to its maritime situation there is a constant breeze to ward off high humidity.
