The volcanic island of Mauritius, lying off the east coast of Madagascar is known for its abundance of luxury resorts, stunning beaches, plentiful coral reefs and breathtaking mountainous interior.
Mauritius is a year-round tropical paradise so the weather is almost guaranteed to be beautiful whenever you visit. Typically though, the months of November to April are the warmer months but also with a higher chance of rainfall.
The island is a really family-friendly destination with many of the resorts offering lots of fun activities for the kids and plenty of adventures and excursions for the whole family to enjoy.
Air Mauritius flies direct from the UK but there are also plenty of indirect options year-round via Dubai, a major transport hub for onwards flights to the Indian Ocean.
