Mauritius tourism has a substantial contribution to the country’s total revenue. However, other economic activities of the region are sugarcane plantations, textiles, services, seafood processing, information technology, and of course medical tourism.
Mauritius, a well-known tourist country is simply heaven on earth. It is one of the few places left in the world where you can look forward to waking up every morning in paradise with fresh clean air, no loud and obnoxious noises, and dramatic views that are hard to imagine.
It is a perfect spot for breathtaking scenery, beautiful beaches, and luxury hotels; making it a perfect spot for newlyweds to make their once-in-a-lifetime memories.
Here is the list of the 7 places to visit in Mauritius.
1. Lodge in the bubble lodge in Mauritius.
The Bubble Lodge are glass domes located in the beautiful areas of Bois Chéri and Ile aux Cerfs, tucked away in the center of luxuriant nature.
These are eco-friendly domes, resembling a large zorbing ball or an igloo, created especially for families and couples seeking a wilderness getaway. It is the ideal setting for a passionate evening with your partner.
Additionally, you can take a tour of the Bois Cheri Tea Plantation and unwind on the Ile Aux Cerfs Golf Club’s exclusive beach. On request, a romantic dinner on the sand is also offered.
2. underwater walk in Grand Bay.
The underwater walk is regarded as Mauritius’s most enjoyable activity. The Grand Bay offers a once-in-a-lifetime chance to take advantage of it.
Due to its shallow and clean waters, the area is perfect for this activity. While taking the underwater walk with your partner, you may admire the stunning wildlife and coral reefs.
3. Catamaran cruising at sunset.
Enjoy a sunset with your partner while sailing along the sun’s drop towards the horizon of the ocean. You will undoubtedly be in utter astonishment after this extraordinary cruise.
Couples can enjoy the absolute serenity of the calm ocean on Catamaran’s sunset tours, which depart from Grand Bay and occasionally feature a school of dolphins jumping around.
The Catamaran Cruise is only offered every Wednesday from September to April.
4. Scuba diving at Grand Bay.
Mauritius is the best country in the Indian ocean with scuba diving experience. The region’s extensive coastline gives travelers a variety of diving opportunities as well as plenty of intriguing activities for diving enthusiasts to explore outside of swimming with whales and dolphins.
The reefs around the entire island make Mauritius perfect for beginners, even if its northern and western sections are prime diving locations. For open water divers, Grand Bay is the ideal location.
5. Underwater waterfall.
This is regarded as the most enthralling activity in Mauritius. Sand and silt on the ocean floor give the appearance that water is flowing down, but this is just an optical illusion. Additionally, the island appears to be pulled down a large drain.
Although the waves appear gorgeous from the coast, a helicopter flight is necessary to appreciate this vista. Unquestionably, it ranks among the most romantic activities available in Mauritius.
6. Swimming with dolphins in Tamarin Bay.
One of the best honeymoon activities in Mauritius is to explore the beautiful waters of Tamarin Bay. A stunning experience is swimming next to dolphins and whales for over two hours.
Due to the vast school of dolphins that have made the west coast their natural habitat, this is now feasible. The Bay is a great place to see the acrobatic prowess of the migratory whale. Make sure you take a ton of photos for Instagram (but without causing harm to the dolphins).
