What would be the seaside without the sun? In Mauritius, we are blessed by the sun rays throughout the year, even during the winter season. The island undoubtedly deserves its place among the top 10 best destination. Excellent source of vitamin D, the sun warms us and puts us in a good mood. Its rays bring out all the beauty of the ocean. They brighten the colors of the blue waves, the white sand and the green coconut trees. In addition, the sun gives your skin a radiant complexion, essential for a holiday mood.
