A beautiful country is making headlines as people have realised that it has 31C weather in November – and is well worth the 11-hour flight to get there.
The East African country spans 2,040 square kilometres and has an array of stunning beaches and rugged mountainous terrain.
An island nation of Mauritius is largely only reachable by plane and therefore has a very unique, untouched culture of distinctive customs, music and food.
In its own winter, the temperature never drops below 16C, while the hottest months are its summer season, between October and April, when temperatures usually reach 35C.
It is a world-class diving hotspot, where tourists can see the incredible coral reefs and marine life. There are thousands of submarine excursions every year, and about 50 diving sites.

Famed for its amazing weddings, it also boasts insane terrestrial nature. The Seven Coloured Earths tourist trap is where a geological formation has resulted in seven distinct colours of sand all conforming on one area, resulting in a mesmerising sight.
There are five mountain ranges with incredible nature and views, each of which has its name derived from their appearances or legendary myths.
It is a relatively cheap island to visit (when you get there, that is). One website puts a daily budget at about £50 per person.
Another perk is the outstanding political stability that the country has. It is one of the most stable African countries and welcomes many visitors all year round. The island is a melting pot of Hindu, French, Muslim, African and Chinese residents, although Hindus are by far the majority.

Sadly though, Mauritius will be an inevitable victim of man-made climate change, with sea levels and temperatures rising faster than global averages.
It is experiencing an increase in floods and extreme weather, with a Mauritian minister warning that “agricultural production will decline by as much as 15 to 25 per cent by 2050”, while adding that “the chances of a major tropical cyclone occurring in the southern Indian Ocean basin will increase by 18 per cent every decade”.
With Mauritius existentially threatened by man-made climate change, you really must fly out to see it as soon as you can. Just remember to recycle your paper coffee cup to do your bit for the environment.
Climate change is caused by fossil fuel combustion and the destruction of nature, which acts as a carbon sink.
