The island of Mauritius is situated in the South-West of the Indian, 800 km East of Madagascar and forms a part of Mascarene Island group. It is of volcanic origin and is situated in the crater of a long extinct volcano. Short mountains (till 900 meters) have been preserved mainly in the South-West. This is called “Mauritanian Switzerland”. The island is surrounded by coral reefs along the perimeter. They protect the snow-white sandy beaches from storms and high waves.

Mauritius was explored by Arab navigators at the beginning of the 16th century, and the Portuguese became the first Europeans, who settled on the island in 1510. In the 18th century the Dutch colonized Mauritius making it a transshipment point on the way to India. They brought here slaves from India and Madagascar, devastated flora and fauna, and destroyed the famous Dodo bird once and for ever, though left an important heritage for the island: sugarcane and deer. Mauritius was occupied by the French in the 18th century, and at the beginning of the 19th century the island became an English colony. The English brought their traditions and the language. The population readily accepted the English supremacy, while keeping the Creole French language. Mauritius became independent in 1968, and in 1992 the country was proclaimed a republic.

The island of Mauritius is an exclusive resort, and one of the most prestigious ones in the world.
