Mauritius – a ‘paradise’ on earth – places you can visit for free. Muslim tourists

When I travel abroad, many people are confused. they take Mauritius as Mauritania. Well, Mauritania is another country and Mauritius is an island [surrounded by sea]. It is situated next to South Africa, near to Seychelles…in the Indian Ocean

Mauritius is known as a key to the Indian Ocean because of its diversity in culture, religion and natural resources. Mauritius counts more than 50 % of hindus, 18 % of Muslims, some 20 % of Christians, and other religions consists of Witnesses of Jehovah, Buddhism.

The mother tongue is the Creole, known by all  population. The official language is English though it is spoken by intellectuals. French is more accessible due to the fact that our mother tongue, the Creole is a dialect of French. Many people, especially the elders speak Bhojpuri in villages. Urdu and Hindi are also spoken among Muslims and Hindus [both emigrants of India/Pakistan]. Mandarin is spoken by the sino-Mauritian people [the emigrants of China]



Please note that we are not responsible for these videos. They are here only for you to have an idea of our island. they are not related to any islamic issues. As you know Mauritius is a multi cultural multi religious country and the first economy is based on tourism. It is a free island. thank you for your understanding


Mauritius counts lovely, exceptional beaches and sea sides. They are free and good for swimming. Tourists who like diving, surfing….or just for an excursion, an outing in order to meet the locals….

Mauritius counts many exceptional hotels

Halal food in Mauritius

Many bloggers and readers have written to me and have asked about where to find halal food in Mauritius

Well, the best place to find halal food is Port-Louis, the Capital especially at Plaine-Verte and Rue Desforges. Plaine-Verte is well-known to be a Muslim quarter.

There are many restaurants, and street vendors who sell halal food. The famous biryani, grillade, samoossas, faratas, dholl purri, etc are sold on the street

Indian food, chinese food, Italian and European food are all easily accessible in Mauritius.
