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. A favorite place, especially for beginner divers, is the Lagoon, which is generally calm in the majority of places. Colorado and Roche Zozo are among the most popular sites. Mauritius has some of the most copious marine life in the Indian Ocean.
