Known to be the only habitat for the now extinct dodo bird, Mauritius has much to be recognized as a magnificent travel destination above all—and Mauritius honeymoons are totally amazing!
This multicultural island nation in the Indian ocean, just off the southeast coast of the African continent, is an absolute dream for newlyweds who make the journey on a Mauritius honeymoon. Once a sugar producing colony, there is a blend of African, Indian and European cultures making up the unique identity of this tropical island. French is mainly used although most speak English as well. Surrounded by beautiful sandy beaches and sheltered lagoons, it is also covered in jaw dropping volcanic mountain ranges. Couples who enjoy working up a sweat on a hike before hitting the beach bar for sunset cocktails will surely be delighted. Water sport enthusiasts will find their heart with anything from surfing the west coast to scuba diving one of the world’s longest unbroken coral reefs. Foodies can enjoy some of the many fine restaurants featuring classic Mauritian dishes as well as international inspired menus.
When to Go
The best time to visit is between May and December. The weather gets hot and humid the rest of the year with a chance of cyclone between January and March. Strong winds hit the east coast in July and August.
