About Mauritius


Mauritius, island country in the Indian Ocean, located off the eastern coast of Africa. Physio graphically, it is part of the Mascarene Islands. The capital is Port Louis. The island of Mauritius is volcanic in origin and is almost entirely surrounded by coral reefs. Mauritius has a mixed developing economy based on manufactured exports, agriculture, tourism, and financial services.

Mauritius became independent on March 12, 1968. Under the constitution adopted that year, the country was a constitutional monarchy with the British monarch as head of state. 

For administrative purposes, the island of Mauritius is divided into districts. The outlying territories of Agalega, Cargados Carajos Shoals, and Rodrigues Island each have dependency status.

Mauritius offers a rich mixture of the many cultures and traditions of its different peoples. The ethnic and religious diversity of Mauritius also means that there are many holidays and festivals scheduled throughout the year.
