Mauritius is a preferred destination for honeymooners. But Mauritius is the apt destination to get married in too! The natural and beautiful vistas of Mauritius make it an ideal gateway for couples seeking to exchange marriage vows and continue with an idyllic honeymoon by the sea.
Imagine you and your beloved exchanging vows in an exotic beach, standing between bright blue sky and the stretches of silvery sands, and surrounded with swaying palms. The soft murmur of the sea makes it even more romantic and divine.

Getting married doesn’t require many scary formalities here. The pre-requisites of getting married in Mauritius include registration with the ‘Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages’ located at Port Louis and four weeks notification prior to your wedding date. The basic documents differ for a civil and a religious wedding, but your passport copy and birth certificates are a few mandatory documents.

Honeymooning in Mauritius means a never-ending saga of beauty and discovery.
If having only romantic dinners and strolls on the beaches is not your idea of honeymoon, then get active with some water sports like undersea walk, deep-sea fishing, sub-scooters, scuba diving, sailing, kayaking, wind surfing, jet skiing, parasailing, dolphin watch, wild safari, quad-biking, zipe-line rides and sky-diving. Shop at the capital and main port of Mauritius - Port Louis. It is a pretty waterfront area with character and history and plenty of entertainment and shopping options to offer. Visit Chamarel seven coloured earth, Pamplemousses botanical gardens, Grand Baie, museums and other heritage sites.
Mauritius is blessed with a chain of the finest beaches in the world, the most beautiful being Ile aux Cerfs. This beach has a stunning coastline and offers a unique blend of sophistication and romance in the air. It has restaurants that cater to almost every palate. There are water sports kiosks along certain parts of Ile aux Cerfs beach. You can also experience some great snorkeling here, because there are large, black rocks that protrude into the water making an ideal place for coral and fish to hang out. Ile aux Cerfs has a complete golf course as well. So, try Mauritian golf complete with an unforgettable Indian Ocean view.
