Mauritius only Mascarene Island to figure in ten best islands on the planet

Mauritius has secured the 8th position among the ten best islands on the planet, in a ranking released by TripAdvisor, a website which advises travellers on the best place they can visit during their vacations.

The selection was made from a list which consisted of more than 100 islands worldwide from Africa, Asia, Caribbean, Europe, South America, the South Pacific, the UK and the USA.

The annual awards were determined using an algorithm based on the quantity and quality of reviews and ratings for hotels, restaurants and attractions on islands worldwide over a 12-month period.

This year, TripAdvisor also examined seasonal rates and identified highly rated value, mid-range and high-end hotels with availability to book on TripAdvisor this summer.

The website notes, “Mauritius is arguably Africa’s wealthiest destination, a tropical paradise with tons to do.”
