Since being discovered by Arab sailors in the 9th century, Mauritius went through periods of desolation and inhabitance with empires like the Dutch exploring what the island has to offer and disturbing the native Dodo population at the same time. With such a storied history, the culture of the island today is one of the most unique.
As islands go, this one is also known for having incredible natural beauty in the form of beaches, gardens and national parks. If you visit the island nation then you will be able to enjoy sights like the SSR Botanical Garden, relax on the warm and sandy beaches, or visit some of the Dutch Ruins at Vieux Grand Port.
The reasons people come to Mauritius are simple; they want the beauty and relaxation offered by the calm and natural setting. You can be lounging on the beaches too when you fly with Austrian Airlines via Vienna to Mauritius.
