1. Sunset on the beach
Sometimes just a simple pleasure like a beautiful sunset on the beach to spend an ultra-romantic moment. Of course, if you want the top of the top sunsets, you will have to go to the east coast of the island. The bay of Tamarin is known for its surf spot and its unique atmosphere while Flic en Flac is the lively seaside resort of the region and the lighthouse of Albion with its cliff offer an infinite impression on the horizon. Plan a pareo to sit down, a cooler with a few refreshments and aperitif biscuits and let the elements take over.
2. Spa Wellness Retreat
The flame of love cannot be fed if you are not completely relaxed. And then the holidays is a bit the moment when we have time to be relaxed. Take half a day for a hammam or a sauna followed by a couple massage and why not a facial to look good in your photos. You will find spas worthy of the name in various places on the island, including the Seven Colors Wellness Experience brand that offers care from its own natural product line.
3. Cruise to a deserted island
Imagine a scorching, a light breeze that caresses you as the boat splits the sea and in the distance a pristine island waiting for you … You can bask in the sun before you go for a snorkeling and when the air of the sea will have dug your appetite, you will be able to fill up around a good meal and to leave for a walk on the island in search of a peaceful place to take a nap. The dream! Quite simply. Several operators are very famous for this type of excursions, and they offer excursions in different regions of the island.
4. Hotel for adults only
Good-bye the cries, the tears and the scramble of children! The hotel concept for “adults only” is gaining momentum in Mauritius, and many couples are getting married, renewing their vows or spending their honeymoon in the Southern Hemisphere. Basically, you will enjoy your holiday even more if you can meet at the table in the evening or in the pool, with the whisper of the wind in the palm trees as the only background music. One of the hotels offering this concept is the 3-star + Veranda Paul & Virginie in the north of the island.
5. Immersion in the countryside
Another great idea for a romantic moment: why not go hiking in the wilderness, a bit like a return to the roots way Tarzan and Jane (or not)! Like music, the forest should soften the mores and allow you to spend a pleasant moment of reconnection with nature and your half. The National Park of the Gorges of the Black River, for example, offers a nice walk between greenery, streams and picnic area. Take out the tablecloth, the picnic basket and do not forget the mosquito repellent!
