Top 5 reasons to honeymoon in Mauritius & Africa

Mauritius Tourism Promotion Office
Mauritius is perfect for exploring, it's is vibrantly tropical, and couples will love sinking their toes in the sand. The wedding is over and the honeymoon has just begun, what do you do? The sand is gloriously white and the sky is so blue it almost hurts to look at it because the sun shines so brightly. Grab your own little slice of paradise for your island honeymoon. Or perhaps you're more the African honeymoon type, exploring the wilderness and taking in the sights?

Here are our top 5 reasons to honeymoon in Mauritius & Africa

1. Affordable luxury: With a mix of five star resorts, chic boutique hotels and sophisticated villas overlooking white sands and crystal clear waters, Mauritius is all about barefoot luxury!

2. Wine & Dine: You'll find an international array of fine dining experiences, with Chinese, Indian, French and African cuisine and michelin starred restaurants in abundance. And with the infectious local party spirit, happy hour is sorted.

3. Variety: If you can pull yourself away from the stunning cobalt-blue seas, white sand beaches and coastal islands, there are the dramatic forests of Black River Gorges National Park, sand rimmed lagoons, historical sights and Africa's wealthiest city, Port Louis, to explore.

4. Proximity: Air Mauritius operates from Melbourne and Perth directly to Mauritius, while Emirates depart from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth through Dubai to Mauritius everyday of the week.

5. Shopping: Mauritius glass, Mauritian and Malagascan crafts, essential oils from the Domaine de l'Ylang Ylang, baskets, spices … from craft markets to upmarket boutiques, you'll find the perfect keepsake of your honeymoon in paradise!

But don't just take our word for it, Barry, Christina, Melissa and Lauren have shared their own experiences with Holidays for Couples and so we can catch a glimpse of the reality.

An African Honeymoon by Lauren Robinson
Everyone enjoys a bit of luxury coupled with adventure... I know that was on our minds when we planned our two week honeymoon from Cape Town, where we were married, to Victoria Falls, where Nick had proposed just over a year earlier.

Mauritius: Tropique Magnifique by Melissa Rimac 
Voluptuously tropical, vibrantly cultural and wrapped in a catchy Creole vibe, Mauritius weaves a spell that’s indelibly magical.

Meet me in Mauritius by Barry Stone 
I was sitting at a table on the verandah of the Maison Eureka, an original early nineteenth century home in the hills south of the Mauritian capital of Port Louis, and was about to be served a meal that was quintessentially Mauritian...
