Time on Island limited by the short day of the Boat company. You need to get there quite early to take in all it has to offer.

We went on a day trip to Ile aux Cerfs on a catamaran - stopped for a bit of snorkelling, (not much to see in the way of fish or coral) had a lovely lunch on the boat, went to look at the waterfalls on another boat - all fine and the lunch on the boat was excellent. But, Ile... More

Beauty too hard to describe. We arrived to be greeted in true mauritian style. We had a wonderful walk and then snorkeling, we also drank champagne cocktails made with mauritian rum.

If you want to enjoy the island, don't combine it with water sports (particularly the one offered by IslandWalk tours). That is a sheer wastage of time. For 3 minutes parasailing, we had to waste over 2 hrs under the sun. The biasness was apparent towards white skin. The person in charge even hinted for the 'bribe' for what I... More

This is one of the most beautiful places I've visited... I'm looking forward to go back. One of the most exclusive beaches I've ever been to.

Since we were there in the month of December, the summer had just started and it rained that day. We got excellent climate because of which we thoroughly enjoyed this place. Please do not take the additional boat ride which they force you to take by showing some ordinary water fall. It is a waste. Just take the boat the... More

Fortunately when we travelled to Iles aux Cerfs there were not too many people on the island. It cost around 5 pounds to travel by speedboat to the island and they depart regularly. Would definitely recommend it!

The photos oversold this place to us. We had a great catamaran cruise to and from the area. On arrival at the dropping off point it was extremely busy, and we almost considered staying on the catamaran. If you do go there don't go at a weekend. It is just too busy! However if you walk a few hundred metres... More
