So we went away for our Christmas break and was really last minute, we needed sunshine and blue skies and had heard about Mauritius from friends so thought why not! Booked only the week before Christmas, we were set and only a 6.5 hour flight direct from Delhi on Air Mauritius we were there!
Coming from Australia, the beaches are kind of good and the surrounding places people typically go on holidays are Bali, Fiji, Vanuatu and Cook Islands and if you just open a new tab and search any of these you will see the beaches are awesome. Now that being said Mauritius is different, sure the beaches are endless white sand and the water on almost every beach is crystal clear, paradise! But its different in the sense it has sense of life other than a beach holiday destination.
We hired a car, which was really easy, although a little challenging as it was Christmas but finally got one. and spent 8 days exploring the island. Easy to navigate around and everything was accessible.
Now not a New Years resolution type people but must say we both had a really peaceful time reflecting on what has been and what goals we will strive for in 2018.
If you are thinking of a getaway and tired of the usual destinations then this is a place you must experience! Visa friendly upon arrival and from the moment you land you will feel the Island vibe and the ease of life for your trip! Blue skies, crystal clear water and an easy island to get around without any fuss!
