A common tour offered by local tour operators, it is filled with holiday makers, and is usually the last stop after the "Dolphin Swimming" excursion. Which ever tour operator you use, it's exactly the same. Crystal clear water, good relaxing atmosphere and a great place to get sun burnt.

This place is beautiful - a must visit if in Mauritius, we've always seen starfish in the shallow waters when we've visited - just beautiful!

It is certainly a nice beach area with many watersport facilities. However, it was sad to see so much cigarette butts and plastic bottles on the sand. It is a shame on Mautitius that they are not taking care of this beauty spot. Be aware that transfers by water taxi from Trou D'eau Douce involve climbing into and out of... More

Organised a lovely boat trip to the island with Ile Aux cerfs Watersports and dealt with Rita. She gave us a good price and enjoyed the trip to the beautiful waterfalls. The underwater sea walk was disappointing but the time on the island was beautiful and relaxing. Had a lovely lunch at the pizza place.

Stopped here for an hour as part of a trip as all the boats seem to do. This beautiful place has sadly in many ways become a victim of its own success. You are instantly bombarded with people trying to sell you all sorts of activities or to encourage you to walk to the craft market. If want a more... More

This place is crowdy and I hated it when I reached here. People will try, try and try to sell you all kinds of stuff. But once you are through that take a stroll along the beach and it gets less crowded and eventually you'll see one or two people. Its beautiful, serene. Visited this place more than 5 times....

We visited this island in July 2016, weather was good, we started the tour early around 10 am. The water is crystal clean and the scenery is wonderful .. we enjoyed there for 3-4 hrs and returned back around 4pm. A must visit place if you are traveling to Mauritius..
