Mauritius is a 38-mile by 29-mile island off the coast of Africa. Beyond the fact that the beaches are melt-your-heart beautiful, Mauritius offers a combination of fascinating cultures: there are African, Indian, Chinese, and Creole influences, and most people speak both French and English. Nestled in the Indian Ocean, Mauritius has some of the best deep sea fishing — maybe not your average honeymoon outing, but certainly worth exploring. In addition, history buffs will appreciate the eclectic architectural influence that dates back to the 17th century.
