In September 2018, I visited the island of Mauritius for the first time for three days. I chose my hotel in Mahebourg near the airport. The hotel owner Ibrahim was super friendly, picked me up from the airport and arranged my trips the next two days.
The island state has a lot to offer its visitors and the scenery is simply gorgeous. While in the capital Port Louis an annoyingly huge traffic prevails, it is fortunately in the other places a little quieter. Mauritius offers picturesque beaches and a unique nature. My two day trips across the entire island were just awesome, exciting and exciting.
In any case, I can only recommend this holiday island.
