The island state of Mauritius is located in the southwest of the Indian Ocean about 870 kilometers east of Madagascar. In addition to the main island of Mauritius with its capital Port Louis, the state territory includes Rodrigues, the Cargados-Carajos Islands and the Agalega Islands.
As a remnant of the English colonial period, Mauritius is still today still considered the left-hand traffic. Most of the traffic is handled by the 1600-kilometre-long network of roads, most of which are paved - so you can explore Mauritius with your rental car in a very flexible and comfortable way.
However, you should be careful on particularly narrow roads, as oncoming traffic can also occur here. M2, a kind of motorway, runs from the small seaside resort of Grand Baie via the capital Port Louis to the international airport in Vieux Grant Port.
