Living in Mauritius

A former French colony, the island of Mauritius lies in the Indian Ocean, 2,000 kilometres off the coast of Africa and is relatively small, covering an area of only 790 square miles. It encompasses not only the main island but several outlying ones, some of which are disputed territory. Geographically, the main island is relatively young, formed 8 million years ago by an underwater volcanic eruption, though it is no longer volcanically active. The island is the only known home of the dodo, a bird which went extinct when the island was settled on by the Dutch in 1638. In 1715 it became French territory, followed by the British in 1810 before achieving its independence in 1968. The nation’s population is around 1,264,000 and it is a largely multi-ethnic society, with many Indian, African, Chinese and European French minorities. The economy has developed over the years from agricultural to diversified, based on sectors such as tourism, services in finance, textiles and sugar. It is also looking at developing its marine economy as it has been marked as an exclusive economic zone. Tourism is very important as the beautiful beaches, warm waters and tropical fauna and flora are attractive to visitors. It is home to a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Le Morne Brabant mountain which tourists are allowed to climb.
