This is by far the best tour of the island (of Mauritius). I've been to Mauritius several times now and have done Catamaran tours to various smaller islands, Quad Bike tour and the Swimming with the Dolphin tour (by speed boat - which is also highly recommended) - but the Coconut Island day trip is a real treat!

the beach here is really great. there is not much to do apart from relax and swim. There are hawkers on the beach if you want to buy anything. you could take a walk around the island however I did not do this and could not say how long it would take.
