We travelled there by speedboat from our hotel in the Belle Mare region. It really was like travelling in paradise. A beach BBQ with freshly cooked lobster on a deserted bit of the island.

boat ride to and fro from the Islands is quite exhilarating. The parasailing, trip to the waterfall, and lunch on the island are some of the activities not to be missed. A swim at the compelling beach cannot be missed as the clear water is so tempting and refreshing.....even for those who cannot swim the beach areas are quite safe.

My newlywed wife and I were absolutely blown away at the awesome experience that is the Ile Auf Cerfs Southern Islands experience. Fantastic trip and food, well worth the money,with funloving and friendly crew. One whole day, but well spent. Take the tour, you'll never regret it!

Vibey with lots to do and choose from. Can get very busy but all in all a good few hours are to be had here. Remember to take cash as the watersports can't be charged to your hotel room.
