Mauritius

About Mauritius

Occupied by the Dutch, French and lastly the British, Mauritius has a rich and colourful past. Ships dock at Port Louis, which has fine French 18th-century buildings. Philatelists won’t want to miss the Blue Penny Museum on the Caudan Waterfront, home to two of the world’s rarest stamps, the Penny Orange and Twopence Blue, and the Central Market is a magnet for shoppers. Excursions take passengers into the heart of the island to visit colonial houses such as Maison Eureka and the former Beau Plan sugar factory that tells the story of the island’s sweet history.
