I had the amazing opportunity to visit Mauritius in May and instantly fell in love with this beautiful island. The landscape is stunning – powdery white beaches, palm trees and sugar cane fields, warm and clear waters of Indian Ocean, spectacular Le Morne…the list is endless.
I stayed at some amazing hotels, enjoyed fine dinners and luxury Spa treatments and met some of the friendliest people on the planet.
