Overview: Three magnificent Beachcomber resorts in Mauritius

“We commemorate the triumph of our nation. Lengthy reside the Republic of Mauritius!” Because the speech attracts to a detailed, cheers get away amongst resort visitors and employees, the vivid multi-coloured flag is raised, and the sega music begins up. Welcome to Mauritius, the so-called paradise island and one of the profitable economies in Africa.

That is my first go to to the nation, coinciding with Nationwide Day, when Mauritius celebrates gaining independence from the British on 12 March 1968. I’m at Trou aux Biches Beachcomber Golf Resort & Spa, watching a pool-side ceremony with dancers decked out within the flag’s colors – pink, blue, yellow and inexperienced – swirling round me.
