We went to Ile plate But in fact it was just in front : ilot Gabriel. We use a cruse company from Grand Baie, in catamaran . Nice trip, the island is fantastic, nice water ... Strong current.. Take care in case of young children.

We went by private boat to the very spot where this photo was taken. It was a choppy boat ride past the Coin de Mire but once we got there, it was so lovely that we anchored right on the beach, and sat in the gently lapping waves for a few hours, sipping refreshing drinks and enjoying the setting.

We booked a tour on a catamaran with sunkiss I think they are called. The bbq was nice but this is about the beach! Fantastic! Fine golden sand and the sea is 3 shades of blue and very calm with a gentle current. The snorkeling is also good but like most places a lot of the coral is dead due... More

We booked the catamaran day trip from Grand Bay to Ile Plate Beach AKA Flat Island through Mauritius Attractions. It took 1.5 hours to reach from Grand Bay and was great fun. We had a choice when we arrived if we would like to go to the adjacent Gabriel Island but Flat Island looked far less touristy and far more... More

We went to the flat island on a speedboat. Clear and turquoise water and some decent snorkeling near the rocks. It gets hot pretty quickly due to lack of shade and we had to constantly re-apply sunscreen. The island from across the water seems much nicer.

This is probably one of the most popular activities in Mauritius. You will take a catamaran boat and it will take about two hours until you get to the Island. You wont be the only catamaran - a minimum of 10 others will be there with you. There are two islands, one in front of each other. Most people will... More

It takes 90 minutes by catamaran from Grand Bay and you will love it. We visited ile Gabriel which is close to flat island and it is more beautiful it seems to be at the Maldives.
