September 10, 2021Ben Adams

Renowned for dramatic mountainous landscapes, crystal clear oceans and spectacular lagoons, a holiday to Mauritius is everything you didn’t realise you needed!

Powder-white sands

Mauritius can often get overlooked when competing with the likes of The Maldives and Seychelles floating in the spectacular Indian Ocean.

However, in our latest quiz, as a lot of you will already be familiar with the beauty of Mauritius, we’re shining the spotlight on this miraculous destination.

And if that’s not all, as Mauritius is currently on the Amber Travel List, it’s the perfect destination for double vaccinated Brits! With October being the best time of year to visit for warmer and dryer weather, and thanks to recent government travel advice from 1st October, you are free to explore the island. There is also no need to quarantine following your re-entry to the UK, meaning Mauritius could quite possibly be the best destination for some far-flung autumn / winter sun.

So, let’s begin! How well do you know the island of Mauritius? To test your knowledge, keep scrolling to start the ultimate quiz.
