Making time for nothing in Mauritius…

Go wakeboarding, sailing, snorkelling - or just relax and take in the view at The Sands Resort & Spa

Mauritius… aaaah Mauritius! Just the sound of it sounds exotic! A paradise island located in the Indian Ocean off the coast of East Africa evokes images of white sandy beaches, palm trees and turquoise seas and this is quintessentially Mauritius. The island is lush and green, with mountains setting a dramatic backdrop to the beautiful beaches that surround this French-speaking country once owned by the Dutch and the British. It’s colourful history also includes the Dodo, the now-extinct bird only existed in Mauritius and sadly the Dutch settlers took rather a liking to this bird and it is no more. However the natural beauty of this island-escape remains and the area of Flic en Flac on the West Coast of Mauritius encompasses all that there is on offer. There are exquisite resorts lining the coast, the Sands Resort & Spa offers a luxurious yet relaxed place to stay. The infinity pool overlooking the deep blue sea of Tamarin Bay is a wonder as you arrive at the resort, made even more wonderous to know that the bay is abundant with dolphins. There are dolphin safaris, sailboats, snorkelling trips and plenty of activities to do… or you could just do absolutely nothing!
