The tiny island of Mauritius off the coast of Africa, is laced with stunning natural beauty, a mix of cultures and, let’s not forget, fun and exciting opportunities for kids. What makes Mauritius stand out from other, equally beautiful destinations? The alabaster shoreline is so soft you can dust your toes in its gentle caress. There's also a number of kid-friendly resorts, made to pamper children. Four Seasons Resort Mauritius at Anahita caters to your child’s every want and whim, whether that be a dip in the kids’ pool or making dodo cookies in the children’s bakery. If that isn’t to your liking, why not consider a stay at Maradiva Villas Resort and Spa, where your child can play around in the Dodo Room - a room padded on both floor and walls for those kids with a bit too much energy. Full-day kids’ programmes, babysitting services, and kids’ parties are also offered if you’re after a quick, adults-only getaway to visit the Rum distillery.
Want more? Mauritius is a haven for outdoorsy types. Why not try abseiling, zip-lining, hiking, yachting, bike riding and so much more.
