When first discovered by Arab sailors in the 15th century, Mauritius was originally referred to as Dina Arobi. Like the Mauritius of today, it was the pinnacle of the Mascarene Archipelago, then Tirakka, which included Dina Margabin (La Réunion) and Dina Moraze (Rodrigues).
Mauritius has earned international recognition as a destination of choice for tourism, which has emerged as the third pillar of the Mauritian economy. The tourism industry has become one of the most dynamic sectors of the economy, providing employment directly and indirectly for about 30,000 people. The inherent advantages of Mauritius as a holiday destination – exotic beaches, pristine lagoons, tropical climate, spectacular landscape and welcoming people – make it a dream island for tourists. These assets, coupled with modern designed and well-managed hotels, represent the main strengths of the island as a tourist destination.
