One of the absolute best destinations for luxury beach holidays, whether alone or with your significant other, is Mauritius. Situated in the Indian Ocean near the south-eastern coast of Africa, this subtropical paradisal island country has the perfect atmosphere for a calming yet exciting vacation with some of the most captivating natural landscapes you can find. It truly is a destination that you should consider visiting at least once in your life.
Therefore, this article discusses Mauritius in detail, highlighting the various experiences you can have that go beyond enjoying relaxing at the beach.
View Natural Landscapes That Will Stay in Your Memory Forever
Mauritius has made its reputation as a natural paradise in the entire world. The country may not be large, but it has more than a hundred beaches with gorgeous flora that compliment the white sands and blue waters. You can enjoy the sight of some amazing natural beauty at the Black River Gorges National Park, for example.
What’s interesting about this country is that you can also explore the different beaches to see how each one has certain characteristics that make it unique. The Flic En Flac Beach is the longest beach there, for example.
What You Can Do to Get Up Close with the Indian Ocean’s Marine Life
If you want to go beyond the shore, there are also diving opportunities where you can see some of the 4,000 species of shellfish and fish in the waters of the Indian Ocean. If you’re not much of a swimmer, you can also opt to take a boat with a glass bottom so that you can view the marine life and coral reef from the luxurious comfort of a yacht.
This tropical holiday destination is also known for giving visitors the opportunity to watch or even swim with whales and dolphins. There are fewer ways to feel closer to nature than being so close to some of its most magnificent sea creatures. Tamarin Bay is the place to be to view and possibly interact with these creatures.
Other Natural Landscapes to Explore in Mauritius
Undoubtedly, the beaches are its standout feature, but that’s not all that you can explore. There are mountain ranges that you can trek for a triumphant spiritual experience. You can revel in the beauty of the wild waterfalls and even share a quiet moment there with your partner if you’re not travelling alone.
If Mauritius is on your list of luxury holiday destinations, then don’t miss out on the opportunity to visit the Seven Coloured Earth of Chamarel. This is one of the country’s biggest tourist destinations, and the reason for that is this geological formation of sand dunes that have seven distinct colours. These colours include versions of red, violet, brown, blue, green, yellow, and purple.
Mauritius Can Be an Excellent Honeymoon and Anniversary Destination
Mauritius can also make for splendid luxury honeymoon holidays. Many couples have celebrated the start of their weddings and their anniversaries in this natural paradise. Mauritius is, thus, home to some truly romantic beaches that allow you to enjoy your partner’s company in the most delightful way possible. The Shangri-La Le Touessrok, for example, has luxurious accommodation with honeymoon packages. In addition, this hotel is also situated at one of Mauritius’ most romantic beaches, Flic-en-Flac.
Mauritius Is Great All Year Round
Even though Mauritius is a subtropical island, you can enjoy your vacation there at any time of the year—not just the warmer months. As it is situated above the Capricorn tropic, it has only two seasons: summer and winter. That said, even the winters are fairly warm for most people, so you can still sit by the beach during a winter holiday.
Mauritius Offers You to Learn More about Multiculturalism
Mauritius also offers you the opportunity to learn about different cultures, ethnicities, and ways of living. That kind of exposure can be a great way to educate yourself about how people choose to live and celebrate their own diversity and their similarities with others.
Last Few Words
Mauritius, therefore, is more than just a place to relax at the beach. It is an experience that will stay with you forever.
