Honeymoon in Mauritius
A honeymoon in Mauritius is a perfect paradise after all Mark Twain was quoted as saying “Mauritius was made first, and then heaven; heaven was copied after Mauritius.”
With stunning beaches and a beautiful interior and plenty of lovely honeymoon hotels and resorts, Mauritius is a laid-back, lush, idyllic island that has everything you need for an unforgettable honeymoon.
While it’s a small remote island nation, and it’s blessed with some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, it also has plenty of activities for couples who want to get out and explore. Hiking enthusiasts will love the rainforest interior, where pretty waterfalls contrast the coasts. Spend the day hiking Le Morne Brabant or spot dolphins on a catamaran cruise.
Take to the trails in Black River Gorges National Park to see native plants and wildlife, take to the golf course on a heavenly island and take a tour of a rum distillery. History buffs should visit UNESCO World Heritage Site Aapravasi Ghat, a former immigration depot and an important and moving historical site. Port Louis, the capital city, is compact, so you can explore markets selling everything from fresh produce to handmade crafts in a half a day.
Mauritius is home to one of the earth’s largest coral reefs, so for ocean lovers, there is so much to do. Go snorkelling in crystal clear waters with abundant marine life. Scuba divers will love Djabeda Wreck off Coin de Mire Island. Go sea kayaking, waterskiing, and windsurfing.
You may just want to switch off and relax in paradise and, after planning a wedding, who would blame you?! Mauritius has some of the most affordable luxury beach resorts in the Indian Ocean, where you can do absolutely nothing by lying poolside or beachside with nothing but a cocktail, a book and each other. From small boutique boltholes to ultra-luxury resorts, you’ll find spacious rooms, blissful spas and beautiful food.
Mauritius’ delicious cuisine is influenced by a melting pot of cultures — Indian, African and French. The best Mauritius honeymoon resorts stretch out across the beautiful powdery sand beaches around the island. The hardest part of a Mauritius honeymoon is choosing between the beautiful accommodation on offer across the island! Mauritius is also one of the best destinations for all-inclusive honeymoon packages.
You can tag a honeymoon in Mauritius to a safari in Tanzania and Kenya, a romantic road trip in South Africa, or add on a romantic city stopover in Paris to create a stunning multi-destination honeymoon. Have you been looking at other Indian Ocean paradises, Seychelles and Maldives, too? Find out about the differences between them here.
With its picture-perfect beaches of powdery sand at the edge of warm azure lagoons, Mauritius is a laid-back tropical honeymoon paradise.
