Mauritius, its natural wonders and its amazing virgin beaches

The Mauritius Islands are a small group of islands located in the Indian Ocean very close to the coasts of Reunion Island and the African coast of Madagascar. They have many tourist attractions worth visiting, in addition to natural landscapes that provide some unusual prints, perfect for any audiovisual project.

The islands have been in the possession of the Arabs, the Europeans (Dutch, French and British) and are, since 1968 independent. Mauritius is formed by successive volcanic eruptions, which began about nine million years ago. A piece of paradise in the Indian Ocean with white sand beaches, turquoise waters and a tropical climate.

Temples of the Grand Bassin

Near a lake formed at the bottom of an old crater appear a large statue of Shiva and several temples to which the Hindus come to make their offerings with their elegant and colorful saris and suits, standing in the water up to their knees. A great chromatic diversity for your photographic shooting or audiovisual production.

Land of the seven colors

In the middle of an area of forest the terrain changes abruptly to become a blanket of colored “dunes”, ranging from brown to tan, pink, orange, and other undefinable shades, in a surprising symphony of colors, which may be the center of your next audiovisual project. The landscape is the result of the erosion of the basalt soil. The mineral components and the rain, together with the warm climate favor the decomposition of clay in the open sky.

Chamarel waterfall

The Chamarel waterfall is a fall of about 100 meters high framed in a paradisiacal green environment.
