The island country of Mauritius lies in the Indian Ocean east of Madagascar. The volcanic main island of Mauritius is ringed by coral reefs; there are also several smaller islands.

Ruled in turn by the Dutch, French, and British, the country eventually gained its independence from the latter on March 12, 1968.

Mauritius has become a tourist mainstay on the continent and tourism has been a key factor in its development. The country’s clear blue waters, long mountain ranges, lush planes, and stunning waterfalls have made it an exclusive tourist destination for many from Europe.

To celebrate their independence day, Face2Face Africa shares with you photos of the beautiful island nation. Enjoy!
