We had as part of a tour a trip out to the bay in a glass bottomed boat. Wonderful to see the reef and the marine life within the bay. A must to do, you can also snorkel and explore it more close up. Told it was great.

We were recommended by our travel guide to visit Ile des deux cocos and we were not disappointeed. Had a great snorkelling experience as we went early in the morning but it gets crowded later.

Beautiful views and for snorkeling but too many tourist for such beauty. Early morning and late evening when no one is around.

Had a wonderful trip organised by our travel rep, visiting Ile des Aigrettes in the morning, followed by lunch and snorkelling on Ile Des Deux Cocos. Hands down this was the best day of our holiday. Snorkelling in Blue Bay was brilliant, really clear waters and lots of fish and coral to be seen. Followed by the best buffet lunch... More

this place is very good for water sports like parasailing and waterfall visit by boat but not good for swimming ,in fact during low tide there is hardly any water for swimming as they have cordoned off the other areas as risky,

This is a real paradise island with fantastic sea and beach including lots of shells all aroun. You can also spend 1 hour looking few metres of the send and will enjoy to follow the movements of the crabs that build holes in the send.

If you have booked the excursion with the big lunch event on the Island, then it may be worth it to visit the Island. We did not want to have the lunch but wanted to snorkel only in the reserve park waters. So here you need to take care. Do not pay for a boat rental at blue bay for... More

Set in Moroccan style, the Island of Cocoanuts ( you would hardly find any cocoanuts now) is a nice place to visit for half a day. There is a full conducted tour including food with a good cioral island trip as well. Good food. we have visited this island twice between 2008 and 2013.
