This small island in the Indian Ocean may not be on the average family’s radar, but Mauritius is a wonderful kid-friendly vacation spot. Glass-bottom boat rides over crystal-clear water, teeming with exotic ocean life straight out of Finding Nemo, will delight children of all ages. You can even swim and snorkel with dolphins in open water here. Carve out time to explore the best of the inland nature reserves via ATVs, Segways or ziplines. Mauritius’ many kid-friendly hotels and resorts can organize watersports or other activities for families, or simply leave you in peace to relax and enjoy the tropical white sand beaches in this year-round warm weather destination.
