Africa may be synonymous to wildlife, but there is more to the country than what meets the eye. The African coastal regions are neighbors to some stunningly beautiful islands which present exotic tropical climes and make for rejuvenating beachside holidays.
Here are 3 beautiful islands off the coast of Arica:
The island of Mauritius is a happy hunting ground for beach lovers and sports fanatics. Its laidback shores are extremely picturesque and the sea is very warm and perfect for swimming. Surfing and sailing are also enjoyed in abundance under a Mauritius package. The island, once the ubiquitous home of the now-extinct dodo, has a unique ambience. Mauritius tourism boasts of the fact that it makes for one of the best honeymoon destinations in the world. Activities like snorkeling, parasailing, scuba diving and angling are very popular here.
