Poste de Flacq, Mauritius

Nestled amid sugar cane plantations and mangroves on the eastern edge of Mauritius, a small African island about 700 miles east of Madagascar, this decadent little getaway invites you to savor a taste of oceanside heaven. Walk along the resort’s lantern-lit pathways to the famed floating restaurant, La Barachois,where you can nibble on local crab and lobster while the swirling sky over the Indian Ocean carries you away. Make sure to keep an eye out for Johnny, the 9-foot-long shark who sometimes circles below.
