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!

Visited for a day trip with family. The island is amazing. You can enjoy speed boat ride, catamaran here. Parasailing was amazing experience of life time. Lazy river was perfect place to relax. Nice shallow water was an ideal place for a non-swimmer like me. One should definitely visit the waterfall. However, those going should book only island visit, which... More

We was blown away with the beauty of this island. Visited island on a day excursion. Excellent washroom facilities that was useable and not dirty, which was a relief as travelled with children. Only dislike was the amount of people pouncing on us literally as soon as we stepped off the boat trying to entice us to do water sports/activities.... More

The East Coast Catamaran day tour stops at Ile Aux Cerfs, a great destination for a family to enjoy a day of fun in the sun. Plenty of water-sports to be enjoyed. Lovely beaches. Great facilities.

Maybe you fancy a day of adventure? new sights? your own private bit of beach? shopping for nic nacs? paddling in the warm Indian ocean? It's all here... the only dislike was when browsing through the small market you were pounced on by the traders - but a firm enough "No" was all that was ever needed.

The most famous island around Mauritius. Book boats from tour operators desk around the island, I recommend the Pirate Boat from Trou D'eau Douce quay. Most of the boats/catamaran proposes visiting the GRSE waterfall. You get lunch,grilled seafood,both alcoholics and non alcoholics drinks and sega songs & dance. Scenery is fabulous,sandy beaches,awesome infinite crystal clear waters. Activities proposed by operators... More

Great watersports activities, beautiful sandy beaches and white sands. Great day out. We went on a catamaran and cruised to see waterfalls where we also saw monkeys. The boat did a great BBQ and great drinks selection on board, alcohol included

We did the undersea walk and the waterfall tour here. Some other couples liked the parasailing and speedboat etc. The speedboat ride is recommended, to the island cos it is a beautiful scenic ride. The attractions are okay. The waterfall can be skipped
