If your honeymoon dream revolves around palm-fringed beaches, lazy sunshine-filled days and warm, starry evenings, it’s probably Mauritius you’re thinking of. With its year-round sunny weather, dazzling white beaches, warm Indian Ocean waters and world-class hotels in magnificent locations, the island of sugar and spice has been delivering flawless honeymoons for decades.
Your Mauritius honeymoon begins the moment you step off the plane to be met with warm smiles and a 'no problem' attitude. Kick off your shoes, slip into something comfortable and put away your wallets – many hotels in Mauritius offer all-inclusive options as well as specials for honeymooners so you don't have to worry about the bill at the end of your stay.
But a Mauritius honeymoon is also perfect for couples who want to do more than just sunbathe. Most accommodations have an in-house spa or wellness centre for massages and pampering treatments and there aren't many that don't offer a wide range of activities from scuba diving, snorkelling and water skiing to world-class golf and fishing - Mauritius really does provide the ideal balance for those couples who want to blend leisurely beach time with action and adventure.
And if you ever need a break from the beach, try a dose of Mauritius’s eclectic culture - there's great shopping in the Port Louis markets, exotic local dishes to try and fascinating Hindu temples to visit. Alternatively, you can get back to nature by exploring the island's forested, mountainous interior or you could take a wander around the famously beautiful Pamplemousses Botanical Gardens.
