We went there today and are 8 hours later are still talking about how beautiful this place is. If you go to Mauritius, don't leave without spending a few hours here. It is at the northern tip of the island and the scenery and water are the best. The water is clear, warm and full of fish. The photos you... More

We visited here whilst doing a tour of the north of Mauritius our driver said it would be worth it. And, he wasn't wrong. The Catholic church is undergoing rennovation but when you walk around it towards the sea you are greeted with fantastic undistrubed views in all directions.

Sea can be very rough, go for a catamaran instead. There are no towels available at the island, bring your own. Overall very nice, good snorkelling. No bathroom facilities available

Took a Catamaran and try to check the weather in advance. The sea can be rough. After a 1,5 hour journey you get to the Plat Island. Paradise. Excellent day program. Very good option

The north of mauritius is know for its rough waters. We made the mistake of going on a red speed boat. We booked in grand baie by the super U. It was 1500rs. but you can get a catamaran for 1300rps. Please book a catamaran. The engines couldnt do speed. we had waves of over 2m and its was very... More
