about Mauritius


The Republic of Mauritius is an island country in the southwest Indian Ocean, about 900 km east of Madagascar. The island is part of the Mascarene Islands, with the French island of Réunion 200 km to the southwest and the fellow island nation of the Seychelles to the northwest.

Mauritius geography

Together with Réunion and Rodrigues, Mauritius is part of the Mascarene Islands. This archipelago were formed millions of years ago as a result of underwater volcanic eruptions. The island of Mauritius itself is formed around a central plateau, with its highest peak in the southwest, Piton de la Riviere Noire at 828 m. Around the plateau, the original crater can still be distinguished from several mountains.

The local climate is tropical, modified by southeast trade winds; there is a warm, dry winter from May to November and a hot, wet, and humid summer from November to May. Cyclones affect the country during November-April.

The island's capital and largest city is Port Louis, in the northwest. Other important towns are Curepipe, Rose Hill, Quatre Bornes and Vacoas.
