The beaches

Mauritius is lined by over a hundred miles of beautiful sandy beaches. With beaches on both the east and west coasts, you can watch the sunrise on one side and set on the other. The eastern side is rockier meaning you are more likely to find quiet secluded beaches away from it all, but it’s the west that has most the islands finest. You’ll find beautiful turquoise waters on either side, and the warm water is always inviting.

The wildlife

It may be a relatively small island, but there is no shortage of amazing flora and fauna. Mauritius is a country very proud of its wildlife, and with such a rich variety it is no surprise. Surrounded by coral reefs boasting 500 species of fish and hundreds of different coral species, there are few better places for snorkeling and scuba diving. The waters around Mauritius are also exceptionally clear, making for excellent visibility for you and your partner to see these creatures up close. The wildlife on land is equally enchanting, with vibrantly colorful birds adding a little magical romance to any walk through the countryside. Keep an eye out for the pink pigeon in particular! It’s also home to giant tortoises, too!

The food

With so many beautiful beaches making the perfect backdrop for a romantic meal, you need food to match the surroundings. Luckily, Mauritius is replete with first-rate dining. Thanks to the rich bounty of the surrounding sea, there is plenty of delicious seafood on offer. The islands mix of Indian, Chinese, and French influences means Mauritian cuisine is nothing if not delicious. The wealth of fresh produce is worth experiencing, so head to a local food market to see all manner of exotic fruits. The rum ain’t half bad either!

The resorts

Few places can claim to have a higher proportion of first-rate resorts than Mauritius. Five-star resorts line the coast and there is no end to the choice for those looking for romance. Many of the resorts are adults-only, meaning you can enjoy a tranquil, romantic, and relaxing break without children running around. Though lots of the family-friendly hotels are more than able to let you enjoy a little romance with plenty kids clubs activities and even private babysitting services available.
