Mauritius is a small, multicultural island in the Indian Ocean, east of Madagascar and southeast of the Seychelles. If there is a paradise on Earth, the global travelers say that can be found on this small island of volcanic origin. Mauritius was uninhabited island, until Dutch arrived in 1598. They had left it in 1710, because had difficult weather conditions. 5 years later, the French people came to the island, and then they had delivered to the British in 1810. From then, the island remained under British leadership, and later, in 1968, became an independent country. It is very interesting when you look at the island as a whole, it is like coral reef, which extends in a form of a necklace, and sometimes this form protected the residents from large ocean waves and sharks.
Main feature of the island today is Dodo bird, which is a descendant of several types of pigeons and during the time became a protected bird, because it started to disappear due to poor conditions for survival. With her 25 pounds, the bird was a great source of food for the Portuguese, who enjoyed in it’s delicious meat. The frequent visitors to the island are politicians, personalities from the arts, and many members of the Hollywood jet-set.
