This Indian Ocean island nation is located about 1,200 miles off the southeast coast of Africa. Beaches, lagoons, and coral reefs line its shores, while the island’s interior consists of mountains and rainforests, with gorgeous waterfalls and abundant wildlife. Watersports of all kinds are popular there, including diving, snorkeling, kitesurfing, and boating. With its southern hemisphere location, June is cool and breezy, after the heat and humidity of summer. The Champ de Mars Racecourse, a thoroughbred horse race track in Port Louis, is one of the oldest in the world, inaugurated in 1812 by the Mauritius Turf Club. For a VIP experience, enjoy the races from the steward suite of The Crown Lodge. The renovated beachfront One&Only Le Saint Géran hotel offers ocean view rooms and a luxurious spa.
