More than 1,200 miles off the African coast, the island nation of Mauritius is one of the Indian Ocean’s top destinations. This multi-cultural island is known for spectacular beaches and Flic en Flac Mauritius is one of its best. With soft white sands and an emerald lagoon protected by a coral reef, Flic en Flac is home to several luxury resorts making it a great place to base for exploring the island or just to spend an afternoon. Nearby, take a walk on the wide side at Casela Nature Park. It’s one of only three places in the world where you can get up close and personal with lions, tigers and cheetahs. Be sure to book in advance for their popular “Walk with Lions” experience, it often fills up fast!
