Amazing place to visit with views just as you would imagine paradise to be. Take the catamaran trip where you get to see the waterfalls, the wild monkeys and experience some snorkelling before arriving at Ile Aux Cerfs.Top tip book the excursion from the small tour operator down the street from the hotel, turn left and the tour shop is...

Beautiful beach but no loungers. You pay for everything! The flea market stalls need upgrading. Toilets are not clean. I was disappointed.

I visited this excursion with my wife. The speed boat transfer was fun.

Great day out on the catamaran. Went to see the waterfall and the Monkey on the way. Did a bit of snorkelling off the boat. Had 2 hours on the island which was just enough to have an explore. Beautiful beaches and we managed to find our own private spot away from the other tourists.

We loved this trip as it was free from the hotel. We payed extra to have a private speedboat which cost around £60 each. This was well worth the money as he took us all around a lovely island and out of sea to snorkel.

Once beautiful and solitary, now tooo crowdy indeed! Impossible to be alone or make romance with your beloved one! Skip away to close Ilot Mangenie (private owned)

Definitely worth the visit. Just make sure to book the outing directly with an excursion company and not a private agent (who whacks on a massive premium for the private service). In short, shop around!
