Its a very small island with lots of natural views of mountains,valleys n sea but the beaches are not that much beautiful rest all of the things are nice attractive
It's a French colony and uses Euro, a good staging place for a break to and from Europe. The beaches are good and plenty to do, food is nice and enough variety.
Plenty of history. Handy to Mauritius if you want to go for a side trip.
