This is an exotic Indian Ocean island where stress melts away and visitors can forget any notion of time. And it’s a country with many secrets to uncover. The photos don’t lie – Mauritius beaches evoke all the superlatives. There are so many to choose from, so none get too crowded. But the island really rewards exploration as well.
