Quick Guide to Mauritius
Mauritius is a small island in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Africa, best known for its stunning natural beauty. Holidays to Mauritius are often special occasions, such as for a wedding or honeymoon, and we can't think of a more romantic destination for such an event. This means that there are plenty of top-quality resorts, but if you've got your heart set on a cheap holiday to Mauritius, don't despair! There are plenty of great value places to stay too - although flights don't ever hit rock bottom.
Mauritius holidays also encompass stays on neighbouring (even smaller) islands of Agalega, Rodrigues and St. Brandon. Across all of these you will find more scenic spots, lush gardens, picture-perfect beaches, historic monuments and exotic wildlife than you could hope to take in on one holiday - so expect a desire to return again and again!
With great weather all year round, you can enjoy a Mauritius holiday any time of year. April is the rainiest time, and the cyclone season is from January to March. Most travellers from the UK see Mauritius as a great winter sun destination, but May to September are great months for a cheap holiday - the weather is warm and dry and rates are up to 50% lower!
