Day 22

Seychelles to Mauritius - Praslin to Mahe, Mahe to Mauritius

sunny 27 °C

Today we moved onto our next country, Mauritius.

The booking problems we had when we arrived seem to have been resolved and we had a flight back to Mahe on a DCH-6 Twin Otter. We were sitting right at the front, so got a good view of all the controls and the Mahe runway.

The island of Mauritius is 65 km long and 45 km wide. It is surrounded by more than 93 miles of white sandy beaches and the lagoons are protected from the open sea by the world's third largest coral reef, which surrounds the island.

As we flew over the island we could see vast areas of sugar cane fields and several large towns.

We're staying at La Palmeraie in Belle Mare on the East Coast of the island.
