Mauritius marked our farthest point from home, in terms of miles, and the mid point of our journey, in terms of time away.

However, there is more to see in …

On the 'non-tourist' side of the island, very reasonable accommodation. Close to the airport, Blue Bay, and Ile aux Aigrettes. Clean, helpful and friendly staff, very good breakfasts. Perfect place to stay if you intend to use a rental car, or if you want to master the local buses.
