Ilot Maitre (Escapade Island Beach Resort) is approximately 5km from the beach at Anse Vata. We booked the taxi boat at the Chateau Royal boutique and we were picked up from the jetty outside the hotel. You can also arrange a taxi boat at the 'activities hut' on the foreshore at Anse Vata beach. You can specify your pick up... More

5* location. The place is beautiful and it is so lovely to walk around it in a comfortable 40 minutes. Such a safe wee place to take your kids for water play. Very romantic as well. A place for everyone.

Was not really worth the trip, Duck Island was way better. Having said that we were hoping for a snorkelling experience. Seemed that the Kite surfers had an absolute ball. The snorkelling was very average, we not much to see. Having said that we did see two turtles and a ray. But the underwater life was far less than Duck... More

Went here on a day trip by boat. The price was only $80 australian and that included a smorgasbord meal. Normally I do not like smorgasbord meals, this was worth the $80......... Delicious!!!!!!! There is a beautiful pool to laze or you can take a swim and have a drink by the pool in the bar. We walked around the... More

Visitors on day trips using the ferry could snorkel with turtles and enjoy the delightful small island beaches too. Turtles in greatest numbers on side away from the jetty.

we took a day trip via ferry to island. Not much to do but sit by the pool and read a book. food and drinks a little pricey for us. A beautiful view to the mainland. There are activities for the young and healthy.
