Also known as the ‘Ultimate Romantic Destination’ by some, Mauritius is no wonder so popular among the lovers. The swaying palms, exquisite surroundings, coral reefs and the blue ocean are some of the many things, which add to the beauty of the place. There are lots to see and do in Mauritius: the coral reefs surrounding the island offer stunning beauty and great underwater adventures to those who want to dive into the precious waters.

The nature of Mauritius mostly resembles that of Paradise, allowing every couple visiting this island to feel like Adam and Eve. That is an experience no couple would want to miss! Thousands of swaying palms, the overwhelming blue of the ocean, vibrating nights and smiling people makes this island a special one. Those with an interest in scuba diving would have a gala time exploring the reefs around the island hand in hand.
