We were a little unsure after reading so many rewiews about the island being too full of tourists, overpriced etc etc. We are so glad we still went there and saw for ourselves! We loved it there! We used the hotel boat an got the sun loungers for free, there were plenty of them free, you could choose if you... More

Sadly as soon as you get off the boat you wil be attacked by hawkers selling bbqs/ other boat trips etc. They can be very persistent. Best to be aloof but polite and don't get into a conversation ( they use football as an excuse for Brits!) We walked past them, past the beach chairs and across the "ford" (can't... More

The island was really pretty with white sand beaches and the famous gently flowing channel. The experience is somewhat let down by the amount of vendors trying to sell you boat rides etc. Some tips: -Wade across the channel and set up on the other side to get away from the crowds. -Make sure you are travelling to Ile aux...

As this is very popular tourist dy trip destination, you should expect a lot of people there. It is a nice little island, nice beach, few bars/restaurants, adrenaline park. Tray to be there early and leave late, then you might have a chance to enjoy it without hundreds of tourists around you.

Very beautiful island worth a visit. Despite what people ahve said that it is commercialized, i thought it still has its beauty in tact. If in Mauritius, you cannot miss it at any cost, worth a visit.
