Welcome to Let's Discover Mauritius, your online portal to learn and explore the amazing Mauritius Island as well as a quick list of the best things to do and places to go. Mauritius is a small island in the Indian Ocean, discovered by the Arabs in the 1200s. Then, it was seen by the Portuguese sailors but it was first visited by the Dutch in 1598. Since that, the island was occupied by different Dutch Generals until their departure in the beginning of 1700s. After that, the French came to rule Mauritius for a long period until the great Battle of Grand-Port occurred in 1810s, between them and the British, which the latter won and settled down here. Mauritius became independent in 1968 and Republic in 1992.

WHO IS BEHIND EVERYTHING?
Originally the portal was created in 2017 under the name of "Activities in Mauritius", which then later changed to Let's Discover Mauritius in 2019. The main reason on this switch is simple. The previous site was more on the aspect of activities to do in Mauritius, while the new one is about learning, exploring, discovering, etc.
