Lahore, OCTOBER 09, 2014: Beach vacations are a source of relaxation and happiness for many. Taking a leisurely break from working life, filling up the Vitamin D supply and getting a tan describes the ideal getaway for most city dwellers.

Black River, Mauritius
The island of Mauritius is known for its white beaches and relaxing atmosphere. Although it is a popular tourist attraction, the island does have some more secluded and hidden beaches, that are yet unknown to many. The Western part of the island, known as Black River is very rural and less populated than other parts of the island. Besides its beautiful beaches, Black River is a green oasis and provides vacationers with stunning waterfalls and hiking trails. An added bonus here is that the region receives far less rain and is therefore ideal for a relaxing beach getaway.
