Mauritius – Paradise in the Indian Ocean

Breathtaking documentary on Mauritius – the island in the Indian Ocean that is everybody’s envy, honeymooners’ dream holiday, and that has got something for everybody.

Its situated towards the east of Madagascar and is part of the African continent, but the cultures, traditions, etc. are a mix of Indian and Creole. Many Indians came in here as sugar plantation workers and stayed back so it has a huge population of Indians with their own cultures, temples, traditions et al.

But most people come for the beaches and they are a plenty on the island, good clean beaches, with delicious Creole food, the best in hospitality. Marine life on the island is equally breathtaking so there is plenty of water sport going on here – scuba diving, ocean walk, gliding, swimming, diving, snorkeling etc.

It has got plenty of options for everybody – hiking, trekking, running, cycling, – all in all its heaven on earth.

The documentary is a pure narration form with no interviews whatsover. It does’nt dwell deep into the history or the cultures of the island. That would have been interesting.

You can watch the documentary here.
