This is my first visit in Mauritius and is not gonna be the last one. So relaxing, fresh air, exactly what you need when you wanna recover from the stress of a big city.

Nice beaches with azure coloured water, good to spend half a day there. The neighbouring island is very beautiful too and it's a good experience having a BBQ lunch over there followed by some lazing around enjoying the views

Nice beach with lots of water activities. Some pictures might be misleading and a person might think an activity is an extreme one and worths trying but it is not. We prebooked parasailing and it was very short 2-3 min from taking of to landing. The rest of the activities we paid for on site and they were sometimes cheaper.... More

This is the most beautiful part of Mauritius for me. Truly loved it. The pictures I took there are the most beautiful of my trip to Mauritius. Whenever I go back to Mauritius I will definitely do a catamaran cruise this part of the island.

The golf course on the island is simply stunning and with the boat transfers to get there a wonderful unique experience. Being the owner of a golf travel company (Chaka Travel) that specialises in Mauritius and other exotic golf destinations I have been lucky enough to play the course many times since it opened. Over the years the fairways have... More

The beach is pretty but just like any other beach in Mauritius. We went for a one hour snorkeling trip to the nearby reef. Saw some fish and coral but nothing really spectacular. Had better snorkeling in Belle Mare. Tour operators ask huge prises for the trips on the island. Our one hour snorkeling trip was sold 1000 RPS per... More

The ecosystem of this beautiful island is not too disturbed providing a feel of island living. Beyond that there is not much to do which can be done at main land Mauritius at a cheaper rate.

Great place to hang out on the isolated white sandy lagoon. Fantastic concept. Food wise ok not that wow factor... Polite and smiling bar staff.. Theres a lady serving she was a bit grumpy and rude...apart from her all good.
