Photos of beautiful Mauritius, paradise island in the Indian Ocean

When I adopted Rosie and became a single parent family many people warned me how it would change my life and I wouldn’t be able to travel that much anymore. Little did they know about single parent holidays and that it is perfectly possible to enjoy fabulous family holidays abroad. Rosie and I enjoyed our fun holidays 2017 in the beautiful paradise island of Mauritius, only a 5.5 hour direct flight from Cape Town. See below for a photo impression of our stay at a wonderful beach hotel. If you would like to read about our great experience on this paradise island in the Indian Ocean, please read about it HERE. Are you considering a to go on holiday to Mauritius and you’re not sure yet where to stay, read our recommendations HERE.

Besides a fantastic island to enjoy a single parent beach holiday, we can also highly recommend some great day tours.
