The island of Mauritius lies like a rich green emerald in the turquoise velvet of the Indian Ocean. Its early history was influenced by the Dutch and the French. Mauritius subsequently became a British colony and gained independence in 1968, remaining a member of the Commonwealth. In March 1992 the island achieved full status as a republic. English and French are the main languages spoken by the cosmopolitan population who live harmoniously on this small island. Mauritius' greatest assets as a holiday destination are its beautiful, white sandy beaches, naturally protected by a coral reef which almost encircles the entire island. The clear, calm waters off the coast make conditions ideal for all kinds of water sports including scuba diving, snorkelling and windsurfing. Outside the reef are some of the most prolific deep-sea fishing areas, particularly off Le Morne where the breeding grounds of the marlin are situated.
