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.

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

Before leaving for our holiday, we had done some research on what to do once we were there. Many had mentioned l'Ile Plate as a great day out for snorkeling ( tripadvisor forum, le routard, lonely planet, etc...). So once we got to Mauritius we booked the trip with Martial (La Mouette). We paid 3000 rp/ €75 for the two... More
