Mauritius Vacation, Honeymoon Packages and Romantic Getaways
Mauritius is a small island nation in the Indian Ocean off the coast of East Africa. Unlike the nearby Seychelles, Mauritius is one large island, which makes it easy to navigate. The mainland consists of lush subtropical forests and volcanic craters while the waters are home to the world’s third-largest coral reef.
The nation boasts a diverse culture of various ethnic backgrounds. Both French and English are widely spoken and Mauritians are likely to extend a warm welcome regardless of what language you speak. The capital, Port Louis, with its bustling markets, famous Chinatown, and well-preserved colonial buildings and museums is the perfect place to get in touch with modern Mauritian culture.
Of course, the many kilometres of sandy beaches are the island’s main attractions. You’ll find beautiful resorts at all price ranges, from budget to moderate to luxury, several of which have all-inclusive dining packages and meal plans. Many of the best beaches and hotels are found around Le Morne Peninsula. At these resorts, you can embark on a Champagne Sunset cruise or get an adrenaline kick riding quad bikes, buggies, mountain bikes, or by horseback riding along the beach. You can take advantage of water sports like kayaking, windsurfing, kitesurfing, paddle-boarding, and sailing or spend your time snorkelling through the waters and even swim with the dolphins.
Beyond the beach, you’ll find championship golf courses and exceptional spas where you can pamper yourself with wellness treatments and unwind from days filled with outdoor activities. You can also explore the mainland, hiking through the lush landscape, such as the Black River Gorges National Park. There you’ll find a large expanse of thick tropical forests with over 300 species of flowering plants. If you follow the many hiking trails throughout the park, you’ll spot wildlife and enjoy some incredible views of the volcanic landscape. Elsewhere, at Chamarel, you can see the unforgettable tones of the Seven-Coloured Earth, known for its vibrant swirls and stripes of soil.
Foodies will find a lot to like about Mauritius as well. Mauritian cuisine combines Creole, Indian, Chinese, and French influences into an incredible local blend that is known for its freshness and flavour. You’ll find great food whether you stop, whether you’re at street food stalls or beachside snacks or opt for fine-dining at the 5-star resorts.
A Mauritius vacation appeals to all kinds of travellers. The 5-star resorts and white-sand beaches are perfect for romantic getaways and honeymoons, while the nature reserves, mountain vistas, and exquisite waterfalls will delight nature lovers. Families will love the friendly locals and the comfort of the resorts, and everyone who craves the water will enjoy the white-sand beaches and colourful coral reefs. Mauritius also makes for a great stopover for travellers looking to unwind after a safari in Africa and is the ideal add-on to a longer visit to Dubai or the Seychelles.
If you want to combine beaches and jungles, 5-star resorts with colonial old towns, friendly people with good food, and white-sand beaches with brilliant coral reefs, a Mauritius vacation is right for you.
