WEDDINGS IN MAURITIUS

Long known as a preferred destination for royalty and the glitterati, magnificent Mauritius is a stunning option for your wedding abroad. In short, a wedding in Mauritius has everything: warm, clear, turquoise sea lapping palm-fringed, white sand beaches ; eye-popping tropical scenery; a wonderful climate , fascinating history and rich culture; great nightlife , dining and shopping, we could go on, but you should be getting the gist!
 
The beauty of the island truly is overwhelming making this a destination that is perfect for weddings. Those who love nature will be absolutely astonished by the majesty of the mountains, nature reserves and wildlife parks of Mauritius - a destination that also boasts genuinely tangible peace and tranquility. There are few better locations that could be chosen for your special day in paradise.

Set in the vast Indian Ocean east of Madagascar, Mauritius is just 45km wide and 65km long, enjoying a tropical climate of two distinct seasons - summer and winter. We say 'winter' (May - October), but even then the average daily temperature is around 25 degrees Celsius! The hot summer months (November - April) claim temperatures of up to 35 degrees Celsius on the coasts, so Mauritius is a year-round destination with virtually guaranteed sunshine.
