Situated in the Indian Ocean southeast of Africa, Mauritius boasts bright blue waters, warm white sands, and tropical temperatures all year long. It is almost entirely encircled by a coral reef, which makes the island nation a superb destination for snorkeling. Mauritius has some of the most copious marine life in the Indian Ocean. A favorite place, especially for beginners, is the Lagoon, which is generally calm in the majority of places. Colorado and Roche Zozo are among the most popular sites.
