Everyone knows that Mauritius is one of the most romantic places on earth, yet, not a few people still wish to be saved the stress of finding out the most romantic places on the Island and going there straightaway. Whether you’re seeking a Valentines’ Day hideout or getaway for just two, here are 7 places to visit in Mauritius for privacy and intimacy.

The Château De Labourdonnais

If you want to begin by going back in time, this is where you should go. The Château De Labourdonnais sits in the middle of a splendid natural estate and reflects the days when Mauritius was a colony. The mansion was built in 1859, and exploring it can get quite emotional. Stroll around—especially the garden, and admire the picturesque surrounding—a guide will show you more.

Ile d’Ambre

This tranquil islet is located off the north coast. It covers 100 hectares between Grand Baube and Poudre d’Or. It is a mangrove-forested coastline that you can explore by two-person kayak. The small islet is nice for peaceful sunbathing, and you can go for relatively solitary snorkelling at the neighbouring islet of Bernache.


This is the longest beach on the Island and is about the only place to contemplate sighting perfect sunset. It is located on the western coast and offers nice spots for picnic and relaxation. You can explore it on horseback too or simply lounge around and watch out for the magical moment when the beautiful sunset turn the blue sky in golden light till darkness arrives—note that some cool side of the beach can only be accessed through a nearby hotel.

Alexandra Falls

This is the highest waterfall on the Island, standing at 700 feet above sea level. It is on the central plateau and forms an essential part of the Black River Gorges. It is accessible through the Plaines Champagne. The viewing point is quite a walk from the parking area and offers lovers enough time for gentle talk as they walk through the charming little path, some trees and picnic tables. The scenery from the viewing point is simply amazing.

Fort Adelaide, Citadelle

This is a historical site built between 1834 and 1840 to guard the harbour against attacks. Today, it’s a gorgeous fort and visitors get a magnificent view of a sizable part of the island from the top of the fort.

La Cambuse Beach

This is a public beach that does not get as much attention as many other beaches on the Island but it is not the least amazing. It is a very nice, sandy beach with crystal clear waters and best of all; you will have it all to yourself-most probably. It is a nice spot for young couples looking for intimacy on the beach.

Pamplemousses Garden (Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam Botanical)

This splendid 37-hectare garden is the oldest garden in the southern hemisphere and one of the highly-rated gardens in the world. It offers plenty of opportunity to lovers who wish to spend time together amidst magical scenery. It houses varieties of plants and you can have a romantic walk there.
