Mauritius has a 'unique mix' of Indian, African and French influences
Mauritius, located off of the east coast of Madagascar, has a "unique mix" of cultures, from African to French, due to its colonial past. This variety, along with the stunning views travellers can take in, make the destination perfect for luxury honeymoon holidays.
That is according to television presenter Nick Knowles, of DIY SOS and travel show Departure Lounge, who wrote about his trip to the African island for the Daily Mail newspaper.
"While it was latterly a British colony, Mauritius has more of a French influence on its style and cuisine. During our stay, we visited a French restaurant called Le Pescatore [which] was as good as any served at a Michelin-starred restaurant in London," he said.
"It was … fascinating to experience the unique mix of Indian, African and French influences that form Mauritian culture."
Mr Knowles added that Mauritius - as well as being perfect for relaxation - is a great place to "indulge your passion" of scuba-diving or snorkelling.
