A short boat ride takes you to the island which is managed by the Lux* hotel group. Sunil was our super attentive concierge for the day. Delicious cocktails, cold... More

I was so mesmerised by the splendid and memorable experience in January 2016.On my recent visit to Mauritius in July 2016, once more I had the opportunity to spend a day on the island. The experience was as wonderful as my first visit. All the visitors were made welcome as soon as we landed on the island. Warm greetings from... More

Earthquake ,tsunami or cyclone maybe ? We checked the weather the day before and the forecast was rain all day , so we contacted our rep... More

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.

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,
