Not worth it. The island is beautiful in its own rights but definitely not worth the 1 hour plus of travelling here to see it. Go to pereybere or ile aux cerf instead. The island is really small and there’s simply nothing much to do...More

When you approach this island on the catamaran, it truly is breathtaking. Simply stunning, there are many other cats around but just looking at this glorious island brings joy. Then you get on the island. What a disappointment! No shade, unless you willing to pay...More

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.
