Photo of the day: Mauritius

2013-09-25 12:30
Due to its relatively close proximity and the prevalance of affordable package deals, Mauritius has always been a popular island getaway spot for South Africans.

However, like with many popular tourist destinations, the very same thing that makes it so accessible, also makes it rather unattractive to travellers in search of something slightly more secluded.

We'd like to know - is Mauritius on your list of places to go? If so, what would the main attraction be for you?

If not, why not and where would you go instead?

For the next few days, a number of travel bloggers from around the world will be experiencing some tropical bliss on Mauritius' shores as part of the #MyMauritius iambassadors campaign. We followed the #MyMauritius hashtag on Instagram and found a few amazing pics, but this one by Bloggeries really captured something of the beachy bliss.

Are you a keen traveller with a penchant for vintage-tinged filters (yeah, you know what we're talking about)? Why don't you suggest your pic for our photo of the day? Follow us on Instagram and mention us in a comment on your pic and we'll check it out!
