We had amazing experiences on our honeymoon in the Maldives. Shared are the experiences we enjoyed on this trip:
Ile Aux Island And Water Sports
While on the Ile Aux Island we indulged in all the water activities. Undersea walk and parasailing were the most memorable events on the trip. The speed boat experience made the day full of thrill and we enjoyed a lot in the Ile Aux Island with the most beautiful greenish shallow beach and clearest water.
The North Tour
We explore the North of the island where we visited the view point to witness the world’s oldest horse race club and Port Louis port. Then we visited the Postal museum and spent a nice time in the Caudan Waterfront and Bagatelle mall in the Port Louis capital of Mauritius.

Where To Stay
We stayed at Sea View Calodyne Hotel in Mauritius, which is near the seashore. The hotel staff welcomed us in a nice way. We liked their hospitality and kindness. I would highly recommend this hotel for honeymoon couples. The rooms are very clean, neat, and hygienic and dining options are available near the sea so that we can enjoy nature when eating food. All the facilities are available in hotels such as the spa, swimming pool, relax, bAR, Diving, Diving, etc. The hotel itself offers services like Hayak boat, Pedal Boat, and lasers. Travelers can use this free of cost in their leisure time.
We never visited Indian restaurants when in Mauritius. The food in Mauritius was good and was less spicy. We tasted a lot of authentic Mauritian cuisine.
In Mauritius, there are many things to purchase. But rates are a bit costly compared to India. We can purchase something, which makes our memory to keep alive such as; Ship models, Flavored wine, Mauritius dodo bird statue, flag, and some craft items. But highly not recommended to purchase garments and cloths over there.
What To Pack
It is mandatory to pack swimsuits, sunglasses, umbrellas and sunscreen lotions when on a trip to Mauritius. Light and comfortable dresses are preferable since it made it easy for us to roam around freely.
- It is suggested that travelers take a 1-day trip to the Island and also take north and south tours of Goa
- It is better to carry, energetic drink and cookies always
- Drinking water is costly in Mauritius
- Try to purchase water bottles from supermarkets and not from the hotels
