"...you gather the idea that Mauritius was made first, and then heaven, and that heaven was copied after Mauritius" (Mark Twain 1896)
Driving across the centre of the island through the canefields of Mauritius one is captivated by the landscape that surrounds you. Vivid and surreal colours competing for your attention make it almost impossible to drive. You just must stop and look around. You are in a valley which once was the epicentre of an erupting volcano and now jagged purple and indigo mountains, remnants of that time, completely surround you.
Canefields of the brightest green stretch ahead, intense blue sky competes with the beautiful colours of womens saris in the tea plantation, and stark white cattle graze emerald green pastures. It is an amazing sight that tends to overwhelm your senses.
White Sand Beaches
As well as the astounding beauty in the interior this beautiful little island abounds in pristine white sand beaches as well. (Infinity Holidays) It really has something for everyone.
