Delicious Mauritius

Mauritius is a true paradise island. The water is only a few meters deep for a mile straight out. Between the shallows and the coral reefs 10 meters from shore, all surf is eliminated and the water is as calm as a pond. This was the perfect place to get used to the ocean again after the unfortunate events of Dec. 26, 2004.

We stayed the first night, after arriving on a ten P.M. flight, at a low quality motel near the airport. We were all so tired, we didn’t care. No one even realized that we were 10 meters from the beach until the next morning, it was so quiet. Even when the wind was blowing 20 knots, the water stayed calm.

The next two nights we spent in a much more enjoyable resort on the other side of the island. The Villas Caroline was a wonderful place right on the beach. The white sand beaches and nearby coral reefs were amazing. The delicious food was highlighted by a pig roast (much to Max’s displeasure) on the last night of our stay. Even though some of us were not very keen on going, we enjoyed Mauritius very much.
