Here is an 8 day itinerary for a couples holiday in Mauritius:

Day 1:  Welcome to your couples holiday in Mauritius

Be at Malta International Airport at least 2 hours before your flight departure. After several hours of flight, which is approximately 14 to 15hous including transit time , you will arrive at  the international airport in Mauritius.  Check-in at your 5 stars hotel. It is time to for you to start exploring, head towards the road to Grand Bay, considered to be one of the dynamic cities on the island. Walk along on the hot sandy beaches, enjoy the colourful boats. You might be hungry by now, try one of the “roti” on the beach (a kind of pancake filled with various curries), followed by a pineapple cut in the shape of a flower or maybe a coconut dug, deliciously refreshing. On the other hand however if you rather go to a restaurant by the sea,  you have a wide choice along Grand Bay from homemade meals to modern gourmet.

Continue to discover the Northern beaches, an approximate drive of 10km, you arrive to the beach of Peyrébère. This is a small charming beach where you can have a swim, relax, take a cocktail or two and enjoy the sunset.

The beaches tend to be more crowded during the weekends therefore would recommend you try to plan your beach days during the week.

Day 2: Dream Beaches made reality

After breakfast head to Trou to Les Biches. This small tourist town has one of the most beautiful beaches in the northern area of Mauritius. Translucent white sand, palm trees, bougainvillea and crystal blue waters.  A postcard spectacle. Here we suggest you laze yourself on a deckchair enjoy the sun, swim and snorkel, explore the lagoon at its marine wildlife. Do some water activities, which are offered by the many hotels you find on the beach.

Change the scene for the afternoon and head to the beautiful beach of Cap Malheureux,  located in Rivière du Rempart District. Here is where the British force finally defeated the French, and took over the island. This quaint romantic fishing village, with its small bright red wooden church which outshines perfectly with the blue skies.

Wander away along the beach with your feet into the water just sit on the sand and appreciate the beautiful sunset . Another day ended in style just as the couples holiday in Mauritius should be.

Day 3: The Grapefruit Botanical Garden / The Sugar Adventure

After breakfast at the hotel,  get to the Pamplemousse botanical garden. You will benefit from an early start so it will be cooler. Enjoy nature and the beauty of tropical trees and the Lilly ponds, which looks just like floating cakes.  This will take an approximate 1 to 2hours, you may opt for a guided tour or  go around by yourself, see the many different shapes of palm trees, various fruit trees and sweet-scented plants.

Stop to grab a snack while resting under the trees on the smooth green grass.

In the afternoon a visit to the he Sugar Adventure and  the sugar museum. Get acquainted with the local Mauritian exploitation of sugar. This visit is estimated to last about 1hrs 30min.  Important you don’t  miss the tasting of different types of sugars, rums and jams.

On the way to the hotel you should stop for a lovely meal at the Le Fangourin restaurant, which is set very close to the garden of Beau Plan. This restaurant is surrounded with tropical plants with a veranda overlooking the mountains. The perfect setting for a fine meal.

Day 4:  Transfer to Port Louis

Breakfast at the Hotel. Today you will be visiting the energetic, busy city of Port Louis.  This city is a contrast from the relaxed beaches atmosphere and the flourishing nature of Mauritius. A visit to Port Louis will give you the opportunity to see the culture and live the local life.

If you will be driving your own car it is recommended that you park at the Caudan car park in the morning, as it is very difficult to find a parking space in Port Louis.

Explore the city by foot.  Discover Mauritius culture and visit the Blue Penny Museum. The Bazaar, Queen Street Central Market,  the  Place d’Armes, the cobbled street, the Garden of the Company, the Government Palace and the rather rare Creole houses are a must to see. Do some shopping at the oldest shops in the centre of the island. Stroll around this village built on the seafront.

You can now check in at your other 5 stars hotel which is  located at Flic en Flac, on the western coast.

Settle in and enjoy a nice dinner either at the hotel restaurant or else you can take a walk and explore the many restaurants mainly situated along the coast road.

Day 5:  Full day 7 Cascades Hike

Breakfast at the Hotel. Get to Curepipe, on the west central side of the island.  A full day (6 hours) tour to complete the  7 waterfalls hike. A must visit if you are a nature and adventurer lover. The trails are through the woods and also near the water, with some rock climbing, ideal for both the beginner and the expert hiker, but one has to be physically fit.   You will see exotic birds and plants. Walking in the rainforest, you will see  waterfalls some more beautiful than the others. You will be able to swim and relax while admiring the picturesque nature.
