Mauritius Honeymoon Trip - Watersports, Temple, Ship Models & Chamarel
Here is rest of the 5 days in Mauritus. If you have not read our first 3 days experience then this one’s for you: Mauritius Honeymoon Trip - Calodyne Sur Mer & Port Louis
Adventure at Ile Aux Cerfs:
During this 3rd day trip we found an Indian restaurant near the beach, where we hoped to have some real indian food which we missed since we left India. But to our disappointment, it was just a hope and hardly came even close to actual Indian food. Nevertheless, the beaches made up for it.
Romantic Candle Light Dinner:
The 3rd day ended with a candle light dinner. Being on a honeymoon trip, we were offered candle light dinner near the beach by Calodyne resort. Although the cool breeze didn’t let the candle to remain lighted for long, someone else was shining mildly on us during the dinner - the moon! It was actually a moon light dinner :) To our surprise, we were offered Indian food for the evening. We stuffed the food into our stomach so much that we could hardly walk towards our room. So we had a short walk at the beach and sat there for an hour.
The 4th day was filled with the south island tour of Mauritius - Le Port, Trou aux Cerfs, Chamarel and Hindu temple.

Trou Aux Cerfs - The Dormant Volcano:
Trou aux Cerfs is a dormant volcano located in Curepipe town. Of course being dormant, it was hardly appealing to our eyes. Our tour guide by Seaside Holidays explained us how it could become active anytime and destroy the place. Trou aux Cerfs is also known as Murr’s Volcano.
Chamarel - Seven Colored earths and Waterfall:

As the 4th day came to an end we were totally exhausted and needed rest desperately. So as soon as we arrived in our room we dozed off. After an hour of sleep we got up and got ready for dinner. Dinner at Calodyne resort had all the food items we would wish for. From salads to chocolate dessert, from omlettes to turkey etc. We loved the healthy, less-spicy food we had there, although we missed the typical Indian food. The best part about this was that we forgot our daily routine and live in a totally new world and that was our motive of the holiday.
Kayaking at Calodyne:
5th and 6th day were meant for our leisure and we made the most out of it. Calodyne offered Kayaking and Pedalos at the beach. We opted for it during noon. For doing these activities, it is absolutely essential that the wind should not be strong. Unfortunately, we went at the wrong time for these activities, we were warned about the strong winds, hence we waited for some time. During this waiting time we enjoyed in the beach water playing around. Then we went for Kayaking. We couldn’t go for Pedalos as none of the boats were available for us. We were provided with the requirements like the boat, life jacket etc for Kayaking. It was a great experience. We rowed from our sea shore to a sea shore which was few kms away from ours. We rowed for around 2 hours, although the distance (to and fro) was hardly 45 minutes. In kayaking it is necessary that both the rowers row in the same direction. But being first timers, our coordination didn't match up and we were rowing in the wrong manner. After Kayaking, our arms pained and hands and legs got tanned. This tanning stayed for a few months after the honeymoon. But we were happy about the experience we had.

On the 6th day we roamed around the resort and enjoyed the swimming pool, beachside chairs, art & craft store within the resort, restaurant bar etc. There were families who had come to the resort for 2 days picnic. There was one service which we has considered while booking the trip but forgot about while we were there was Wi-Fi! We used this service on the 6th day and accessed some internet on our phones.
Being the the 2nd last day at the resort and the trip, we were feeling sad. Next day morning we had to leave for the Mauritius international airport and then back to Mumbai.
Here ended our Mauritius honeymoon trip. I am writing my experience an year after the trip. Although time has passed by, memories are still intact in our minds.
