Officially known as the Republic of Mauritius, our island nation is located off the south-east coast of the African
continent in the Indian Ocean. The main island of Mauritius is of volcanic origin and is known for its beaches,
lagoons and reefs surrounding most of the coastline.
The country has a population of around 1.3 million people for a
surface area of a little over 2,000 km². Mauritius has a reputation for stability and racial
harmony within a plural society of various ethnicities, religious beliefs and cultures that

make it a unique place in the world and the Mauritian people are known for their

centre for upmarket tourism and financial services.
