I saw my first trip to Mauritius as a chance to see for myself what Mark Twain said about the country. According to Mark, “you gather the idea that Mauritius was made first, and then heaven; and that heaven was copied after Mauritius.” This assertion can easily draw the irk of religious people, but Mark was well within his right to share what he felt about Mauritius, and everyone should visit the country to have their own personal experience.

A quick search online about the country shows a humble synopsis like this: “Mauritius, an Indian Ocean island nation, is known for its beaches, lagoons and reefs. The mountainous interior includes Black River Gorges National Park, with rainforests, waterfalls, hiking trails and wildlife like the flying fox,” but what a personal experience gives is an inexplicable dive into a tropical paradise that charms everybody who sees it. To say the least, Mauritius’ natural beauty is absolutely breathtaking, and this is one of the reasons why the country is a perfect place for Valentine’s Day. Here’s how to have a Special Valentines’ Day in Mauritius

Incredible Facilities and Excellent Service

Mauritius is well geared up to take care of you whatever your budget is. There are many luxury hotels and resorts offering fantastic services and enviable facilities. Even the seemingly small lodges know how to make their visitors feel extra special.

Perfect Romantic Getaway

Mauritius is a honeymoon getaway destination and wedding paradise that everyone longs to visit. If you think hundreds and thousands of world-class celebrities and the super-rich who check-in into the country to catch fun and have some blissful time are fools, you might have to check yourself; remember, nobody pays good money repeatedly for rubbish! Go there and find out why it’s everyone’s dream-come-true for honeymoon and romantic holiday.

Plenty of Sites, Sights and Candlelight Moments

In Mauritius, you get treated to sights of gorgeous beaches, forests and lavishly luxury resorts, as well as old and grand plantation homes that easily catch the eye; and romantic moment created for two.

Explore Port Louis

The capital city is definitely one of the interesting places to be. It’s where you find a perfect blend of tropical paradise and city life. The streets are lined with palm trees and you can stop by at the historical centre, the Places D’Armes or browse the central market for some souvenirs. Caudan Waterfront is where you go to take in the beautiful ocean view.

Plenty of Untouched Parts to Explore

If you find your way to a place like Le Morne peninsula, you’ll be rewarded with the sight of an unbelievable but stunning three-mile beach beneath a fantastic towering rock formation. This is just one of the beauties hidden in Mauritius.

Plenty of Beaches

If there is something you need not bother about, it’s the surfeit of gorgeous beaches! There is the dreamy beach of Mont Choisy, Pereybere Cove, Belle Mare and Trou d’Eau douce. You might even find out you have a whole beach to yourself.

Plenty of Room to Stretch Your Legs


If you feel like hiking or walking and whispering to her along beautiful walks and trails—(from a gentle stroll to strenuous hike), Mauritius has plenty of room. The SSR Botanical garden is where I easily recommend, it’s a wonderful place to play around. Also, the golf course is a fantastic place to play a round or two or learn how to perfect your skills if you are new to the game.

Wonderful Mix of Culture

Because of the mix of cultural influence on the Island, the traditions and ways of life that have evolved there make Mauritius a sophisticated and interesting place to be.

All Interests Are Taken Care Of

Whatever your style, taste and definition of romantic Valentines’ Day, I can safely assure you that in Mauritius, you and your loved ones will find a perfect fit, and won’t regret choosing the destination—especially if you use the right guide.
