Just had a quick visit to this island as part of a day trip, only regret is not having a lot of time to spend on the island to try any of the activities. There was parasailing, boat trips, hover boats, treetop walk, an endless array of things to do both in and out of the water. The scenery is... More

A beautiful place to simply laze in, Sun tan and read a book, Sands restaurant serves good cocktails and mocktails. Food is basic affair- pizzas and burgers. There is an Indian restaurant... More

Rather expensive drinks, but a beautiful island with good facilities, especially for children. We stopped here as part of a tour, and had a barbecue on the beach.

The beach activities offered here are available at most other hotels in Mauritius so its not really worth paying +-$35 to get there including land and boats transfers. It does include a barbecue lunch and visit to a waterfall which makes it a bit more worthwhile. But it is really beautiful and the water is supremely clear. The activities they... More

I sincerely regret not spending more time at Ile Aux Cerfs. It is gorgeous! You just want to soak in the views and not come back home. It is reason enough for one to visit Mauritius. Plan an entire day here. Or 2.

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. It is a small commercial island with few land as well as water activities which are chargeable on a higher side, but you can bargain, yes you can. Food was average, you don’t have much choice though there are few restau & café to choose from. The... More
