We all know that it’s the ultimate dream of every traveler to find their own slice of paradise. Well good news, my traveling friends, the search might have just ended. Have you ever heard of a little place called Mauritius? Really? No? Well don’t worry, because until a few years ago, neither had I. If you’re looking for a great tropical vacation spot this year, make it Mauritius. And you’re in luck too, because Thomson
will help you save a ton of money on travel, just like they did for me!
White Sand, Blue Sea
Mauritius is the most developed island of the Mascarene Islands, but that doesn’t mean you won’t be able to take the road less traveled. If you’re in search of your own personal slice of heaven, check out the famed white-sand beaches for a little, rest, relaxation, and of course, sunbathing. Trust me, nothing fills you with life more than laying on the beaches of Mauritius and absorbing some much needed rays.
Enough for the Whole Family
If you’re the type of person who’s interested in doing more than just laying around on the beach all day (and let’s face it, there’s nothing wrong with that), Mauritius is loaded with historical sights and cultural activities the whole family will enjoy. So after you’ve had your fill of beach and sun, finding something else to do may be easier than you think.
Personally, I loved visiting the mercantile capital of Port Louis, which is the wealthiest city in Africa. The sights, smells, sounds, and tastes were truly unlike anything I’ve ever experienced before that point in my life. If you ever make it into the city, you need to check out the garment markets in the towns of Quatre and Bornes Curepipe. The garments there are handcrafted by local merchants, and make great gifts for family members and friends. During the time I spent there, just walking around the city opened my eyes to a culture so unique and beautiful, it was had to believe I had never heard of it before.
So what are you waiting for? Get out there and grab your own personal slice of paradise!
