Forget the usual honeymoon destinations; Mexico, Hawaii, Italy, France or Spain. If you want true luxury, a place that none of your friends have been and a place you will never forget, think Mauritius. Over a century ago, writer Mark Twain said, “Mauritius was made first, and then heaven, and that heaven was copied after Mauritius”.
Ask anyone whom has experienced their honeymoon in Mauritius what their favorite memory about the island was. Some will say the snorkeling/scuba diving while others will say walks along the beaches or a hiking adventure. Some will say the deep water fishing was the best while others will say swimming with the dolphins or kayaking was the experience they will never forget. No matter what their favorite activity was, everyone will come to the same conclusion though: it is a truly enchanting and beautiful place and a destination that will never be forgotten! Any luxury honeymoon to Mauritius will be a life changing experience.
So, where exactly is Mauritius? Mauritius is a small island approximately 1,200 miles off the east coast of Madagascar. Geographically, the island nation is about twice the size of New York City. Unlike New York, however, its population is only about 1.3 million people; 85% of which live in the capital city of Port Louis. With all that land and so few people, Mauritius has so much pristine jungle and uninhabited area. With the lack of people and the abundance of open land, beaches and mountains, you are sure to be kept busy during your honeymoon to Mauritius!
Mauritius is a great place to visit year round as well. Located in the tropics, the temperature rarely fluctuates outside the range of 70-80 degrees Fahrenheit (21-27 degrees Celsius) and has a yearly average humidity at a constant 82%. Because the island is out in the middle of the ocean, there is a constant sea breeze which means it never gets too hot and never gets polluted as well. No matter what activity you choose to do, Mauritius is the perfect place to do it.
Overall, the island nation of Mauritius is a destination that will never be forgotten. No matter what you like to do, Mauritius has it. There are recreational activities for any type of tourist that comes here. The beach is never too far away; the same can be said for the mountains on the small island. Hiking the jungle interior is great for mountain lovers while swimming with dolphins, deep sea fishing and snorkeling are great things to do at or near the ocean. With a tropical climate, the island is a great destination to visit at any point in the year. Come for a two week honeymoon and leave with memories that will last a lifetime!
