White beaches, tropical palm trees and home to some of the world’s luxurious hotels and resorts, make Mauritius a popular honeymoon destination. However, Mauritius has a ton of non-beach activities, historic sights and lush forests. It is an island for exploring, with Indian temples, colonial houses, botanical gardens, and opportunities to spot rare birds among soaring ebony trees, walking with lions or swimming with dolphins. Mauritius honeymoon packages can include many of these activities ensuring a relaxing but active getaway.
Black River Gorges National Park in the interior of the mountainous island encompasses rainforests, waterfalls, hiking trails and fauna such as the flying fox.
WHEN TO VISIT
It’s best to visit Mauritius between May and December when the weather is cool and sunny. Expect some of Africa’s best beaches, fresh seafood and long balmy evenings.
