How to make Mauritius Honeymoon itinerary unlike the first-time tourist? Well, design your own itinerary and live the experiences first-time traveller might not be aware of. Highlights of some of the most frequently-opted-for Mauritius Honeymoon Packages include Port Louis, Grand Baie, Grand Bassin, Ile Aux Cerf and beaches like Belle Mare, Flic en Flac and Trou Aux Biches. However, if you want to experience things not experienced by many, here are few thing as recommendations:
Town of Mahébourg
On your first day, if you are looking forward to hopping across a calm town with a charm of its own, this is where you should be. With simple pleasures of life, it touches your soul. A south-eastern island on the coastline of Mauritius, Mahébourg is a fishing village which was once a busy port. And thankfully, one can relax without thinking of overspending, even as if you plan on bringing your whole family here on the next vacation. It’s Monday Market if to buy souvenirs; Norte Dame Das Anges, a church to bow head in peace; and a National Museum with a collection of interesting artifacts. Give this palce a try and you will love it.
Champs de Mars Racecourse
This is not a city or town but a reputed racecourse built in 1812 (a thing Mauritians are proud of and is a part of their history). Come here only if you want to experience Mauritius the way Mauritians’ experience (and also if you admire the sport yourself!). Locals are just a big time fan of it and enjoy it every Saturday. You can make some local friends here too without trying very hard as the passion for the jockeys, horses and for the sport also speak for themselves. The views of the mountains are like icing on the cake.
If you have always thought that aerial views are better, time to get them closer with Air Mauritius. As you are on your honeymoon, a little splurging is OK and must be planned well ahead so that it does not hurt. You can easily fall in love with the beauty of the landscapes in the 30 minutes of ride that starts from Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport. The azure of sea and sky and verdant of mountains are something you would want to see from heights always once you have taken the ride.
If there’s more adrenaline pumping than you thought from the above trip, there are numerous things to at different places. You can choose Le Morne. For those who are wondering what it is, it’s the highest peak of Mauritius with its set of challenges and rewards that make these challenges worth it to take. Pick your devil from hiking, cycling or abseiling.
For some mild fun, Casela Nature Park with its philosophy of ‘quality life to animals bred in captivity’ stands out and gives you are unique experience with animals even if you are bored of the term ‘zoo’. Then there’s Blue Bay Marine Park for perfect snorkeling experience.
Mauritius is flush with history and has become a place where different cultures have come to make it their home. Do not hesitate to explore its historical aspect while enjoying each other’s company and planning about your catamaran cruise to make your honeymoon package to Mauritius complete!
