Mauritius is perhaps one of the most romantic honeymoon locations in the world. Villas line the beaches, golf courses fill its interior and coral reefs surround this island nation. This is all set to a backdrop of a rich cultural history that dates back to times of the Arab traders and the European conquest for Africa.
