Blending the natural beauty of a coastline and a tropical landscape for a getaway unlike any other, the country will blow your expectation of a honeymoon escapade to smithereens.


First off, where is Mauritius? Tucked away to the west of Madagascar, hugging the African coast, the main island is blessed with seemingly endless stretches of beach. Surrounded by coral reefs that betray the sight of sparkling water, the unique locale and biome of Mauritius gives off an almost ephemeral sense of beauty, with vibrant flora and fauna to delight you.

Know Before you Go

With enough variety within its grasp, you can take a large time off and enjoy two different kinds of vacation – an adventurous delving into jungle rainforest, or a relaxing time on the beach. The choice is yours, as the country has the goods to suit the most diverse of couples. There’s also activities like kitesurfing, fishing, and beachside walks to capture your fancy, easily inquired by when searching for the best family resorts in the Mauritius.

When to go and more Tips

Like most island countries, the weather can be pretty stable for most parts of the year. However, some months are drier than others, so be forewarned, and pack sensibly. English is the official language of the country, although French and Creole are also widely spoken. Avoid travelling in January and February, as heavy rains might put a damper on your plans to stay in a luxury spot such as The Residence Mauritius.
