Mauritius will captivate you, uplift your soul, and make you feel special while you honeymoon in the island with the contrast of colors and tastes. Set in azure waters, Mauritius is a haven of peace and harmony. A mixture of past and present are smoothly merged together, offers the most romantic atmosphere for the honeymooners.
The Indian Ocean has a variety of special locations in which to take a honeymoon, be it a private island in the Seychelles, or a 6 star hotel in Mauritius. Fortunately most countries are linked to Mauritius well enough to allow a 2 or even 3 centre honeymoon.
A very popular idea is to combine Mauritius with a safari on the African mainland.
Mauritius, once the home of the now extinct dodo, has the most stunning wildlife, including some brilliantly hued birds that you can admire at the game parks. Port Louis, the bustling capital with its swanky waterfront, and the neighboring town of Mahebourg are great places to relax and get into the spirit of this fascinating land, a potpourri of cultures, colorful traditions and festivals.
If you are looking for a bit of action, head to Tamarin for surfing; Mt Limon and Mt Malartic for hiking, the area around Port Mathurin for coastal hiking; Rodrigues for the best diving opportunities; and Caverne Patate for caving. Or just let your hair down, laze on the beaches, and party into the wee hours of the morning on trendy beach resorts like Grand Baie, Trou aux Biches, Mon Choisy, St Francois, Trou d’ Argent and Petit Gravier or the less touristy area of Pereyebere.
