Silver sands, turquoise waters, swaying palm trees and lush forests. Mauritius is everything you would imagine heaven to be and more. With the right Mauritius packages, you could have the experience of a lifetime in this little slice of paradise.
Mauritius is a tiny, picturesque island in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Africa. The nation is a multilingual, multiethnic society with Dutch, French and British colonial influences apparent everywhere you look from food, to architecture and even the odd variant of Creole spoken by the people. One of the smallest countries by size, Mauritius is blessed with white sandy beaches, crustal blue lagoons, rolling hills and some of the largest coral reefs in the world. Its divine natural beauty draws travelers from all over the world and makes Mauritius packages a favourite holiday pick. The island offers a mouthwatering fusion of Africa, Asia and Europe making for a delightful Mauritius honeymoon package. Honeymooners can enjoy the luxurious environs of exclusive resorts and the earthy vibe of Mauritian bazaars selling fresh fruit and trinkets as well as the rugged interiors of the island with its rugged peaks, grasslands and colourful flowers.
We suggest beginning your Mauritius packages at the capital Port Louis with its fascinating mix of temples, mosques, churches and pagodas. Visit landmarks such as Apravasi Ghat, a World Heritage Site which saw the arrival of indentured labourers from India to Mauritius, the Champs de Mars racecourse, Stamp Museum and St Louis Cathedral. China Town is also worth a visit if you’re in the mood for an authentic Chinese meal or maybe some traditional Chinese medicine. For a taste of the Mauritian high life, make Le Caudan Waterfront a part of your Mauritius honeymoon package. Once home to warehouses, magazines, and the Indian Ocean’s first observatory; the place has reinvented itself as a waterfront mall with art galleries, cafes, a museum, a marina, cinemas, casinos and shops. Caudan Waterfront is the perfect place to people watch and breathe in the bustle of Port Louis.
Port Louis Natural History Museum, housed in a colonial building, is known across the world for its dodo. The flightless Mauritian bird that was hunted to extinction in the 17th century has been reconstructed and preserved in the museum along with scores of other rare species. A visit to the museum is essential for Mauritius packages with kids.
While you are in the north of the island on your Mauritius honeymoon package, spend the evening at Grand Bay. A magnet for couples and young people, it’s a wonderful place to spend a night on the town. With tons for bars, clubs and speakeasies, Grand Bay is well worth a visit. Another spot that finds its way on most Mauritius packages is Pereybere. Voted the World’s Most Beautiful Beach, Pereybere trips are marked with glass bottom boat rides, mangrove forest visits, water skiing, tubing and sunbathing. It’s also a great launching pad for amateur divers. Visit Triolet, the longest village in Mauritius, to see the biggest Hindu temple in the country. The Maheswarnath temple, first built in 1819, is dedicated to the Gods Shiva, Krishna, Vishnu, Muruga, Brahma and Ganesh.
If you fancy a traipse into the heart of the island, head to the Labourdonnais Orchards for a walk or bike ride through tropical fruit trees and exotic flowers. The Château de Labourdonnai, the mansion in the centre of the orchard is one of the most beautiful colonial houses in Mauritius. Built in the 19th century, the mansion is built in the neoclassical style with double colonnaded galleries skirting the building. A tour of the mansion is unavoidable if you happen upon its grounds with its beauty drawing visitors in. The Labourdonnais Orchards deserve a visit on your Mauritius honeymoon package.
The highlight of most Mauritius packages, however, isn’t the breakneck pace of Port Louis but the unspoiled beaches and wilderness of Blue Bay. Enjoy crystal clear waters and endless palm fringed beaches in one of the purest parts of the island. Make sure that Mauritius honeymoon package includes a snorkeling trip to the corals reefs just off the coast. Exploring the rainbow of corals and tropical fish is a mandatory activity for all holidayers on Mauritius packages. The Blue Bay Marine Park is a must see in this part of Mauritius. The park is home to over 50 distinct species of corals and rare aquatic life. Your Mauritius honeymoon package will also have a range of land and water sports including kayaking, windsurfing, volleyball, deep sea fishing and scuba diving. You could also try island hopping on a catamaran or sail boat to some of the more scenic islets surrounding Mauritius.
In the unlikely event that the beaches and colourful cocktails of Mauritius tire you, we recommend a trip to the interior of the island with our Mauritius packages. The Vallée des Couleurs, or quite simply the Valley of Colours, treats visitors with valleys, hills, waterfalls and lakes; images you would never associate with the island of Mauritius. Pick Mauritius packages that will allow you to experience the Valley in unique ways, such as quad biking, pond fishing, step jet and zip lining. The 23 Coloured Earth is a sight to behold. Formed by a volcanic eruption that occurred millions of years ago, 23 Coloured Earth is a fascinating match of land that owes is colourful appearance to volcanic activity, underground gases and mineral deposits. Enjoy breathtaking panoramic views of the South Coast with some of the rarest flora and fauna on the planet with our Mauritius packages.
No trip to Mauritius will be complete without a trip to Ile aux Cerfs. A part of every Mauritius honeymoon package, this tiny islet offers the perfect balance between adrenaline pumping adventures and drink in hand, toes in sand relaxation. Feast your eyes on the vivid turquoise colour of the lagoon, lush green casuarina and mangrove trees and the powdery white sand. Take a leisurely stroll on the beach and indulge in exciting water sports such as parasailing, banana ride, tube ride and an undersea walk. We also suggest venturing inland for one of the most enchanting sights of your Mauritius honeymoon package. The island is home to the Grand River South East Waterfall, a spellbinding cascade of water flowing into a glassy pool in the middle of the lush jungle. Enjoy a picnic with your loved one by the falls with macaques and wild flowers for company.
