Nice little island with a great beach. We visited on a catamaran day trip from Grand Baie. Opportunity to rent Sun loungers and umbrellas on the island but no other services. Good snorkelling if you swim out from the beach.

There really isn't that much to see on the island itself. But you can snorkel right from the beach and see some cool fishes. Also the catamaran cruise to get to the island is a fun way to spent the day.

Beautiful place! Lightblue sea + a lot of fish. Great place for snorkeling. Would have liked to stay a little longer! The boattrip was also nice, a bbq was included and people were dancing on the boat on the way back!

It was a good experience. The beach is very pristine and you feel as if you are on a uninhabitated island. I visited Flat Island and Coin D'Mire along with it.
