    Berlitz Pocket Guide Mauritius is the ultimate handy guide to this enchanting island destination, with 144 pages combining authoritative narrative detail and stunning colour photography. The book begins with two inspirational features: a rundown of Mauritius's Top 10 Attractions, followed by an itinerary for a Perfect Day in the fascinating capital, Port Louis. An introduction to Mauritius, giving you background information on people, geography, wildlife and more, is followed by a brief history of the island, including a quick-reference Historical Landmarks timeline. Throughout the guide, colour feature boxes brief you on points of historical and cultural interest. The main section of the book is the Where to Go chapter, which tells you everything you need to know about the island's sights and attractions. Organised geographically, it begins in St Louis and covers each area of the island in turn, from the north coast with its incredible beaches, through the rural, isolated east, the natural beauty of the south and the hot, dry west coast. The chapter then covers the central plateau towns, where you can gain an interesting insight into local lifestyles, before moving on to the stunning island of Rodrigues, 560km east of Mauritius. Throughout the chapter, number dots link the sights to the handy maps on the cover flaps. Next, the What to Do chapter is a snapshot of ways to spend your spare time in Mauritius, from scuba-diving and sailing through to adventure tourism and tropical weddings, as well as nightlife and entertainment, shopping, and the best activities for children. There is also a Festival Calendar letting you check what's on while you're on the island. The Eating Out chapter covers the island's cuisine, describing what to eat, where to try it and what drinks are on offer, and includes a handy Menu Reader with all the words and phrases you will need while dining out. The chapter is followed by carefully chosen listings of the island's best Places to Eat. The final sections of the guide are the A-Z Travel Tips - covering all the practical information you'll need, from budgeting to health to transport - and listings of Mauritius's best hotels and resorts.
