Together with Réunion and Rodrigues, Mauritius completes the trio of islands making up the Mascarene archipelago lying beyond the eastern shores of Madagascar. Today an oasis of idyllic tranquillity for holidays and honeymoons alike, Mauritius' creation is somewhat of a paradox, literally erupting from the ocean floor some eight million years ago. Now dormant, the island's jagged volcanic peaks create a powerful backdrop to the coastal plains dotted with fields of sugar cane and tobacco. Such sights create unforgettable tableaux that will remain with you long after your Mauritius holiday is over.
