Make sure when you get off the boat that you walk 15 mins away round the island to get a real taste of paradise. This was the best beach we went to on Mauritius and we would love to go back one day.

It was a beautiful island but was rather busy & has become very commercialised. Would have preferred an island that is less inhabited by tourists.

Take an off for 5-6 days and visit mauritius. You will find many places to hang out. Best among them is this lovely island. Go and enjoy full day of watersports and other activities. Waterfall, a speedboat thriller are some of the activities.

Ile aux Cerfs was great but very commercial, with craft shops and a restaurant and adventure park on the island. The pictures paint it as a remote unspoilt island but it was very busy and very commercial, so a bit disappointing.

Really nice place to relax for a couple of hours or spend the day. Ps: Public boat service was a bit weird - we did not know which boat would pick us up, so we waited for half an hour... then a boot came to pick us up... and after 100 meters the dropped us on the pirate boot. this... More

This is a very nice spot, but quite overcrowded. The food sold there is too expensive and the activities are interesting with a quite good price. Good place for children too.

The island is quiet, fewer visitor, more christal water, and a long shallow beach, which leads you to walk far into the ocean. The coulourful sea urchins add to the interest in this holiday paradise. However, the coral and undersea-lives are not exciting enough.

Small island a few minutes boat ride from Le Tuessrok hotel. Central feature is a golf course but plenty of activity for families including restaurants, water sports, private enclaves for barbecues, tree height activity etc. A good place to visit and get away from the traditional touristy sights of Mauritius and get some real R&R!
