“Beautiful island”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

Pristine blue water - ideal for snorkeling. Found lots of sea shells and starfish while swimming. Watch out for the sea urchins - lots in the water but because the water is so clear, you can see them quite easily to avoid stepping on them.

“Paradise isle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

Ile aux Cerfs is the Mauritius I imagined - I was a little disappointed in Mauritius mainland as a destination - over developed and a lot of ugly half finished buildings. But perhaps that is because I like a walk on the unspoilt natural wildside.

“Good but.....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

Lovely island but very touristy. Even getting off the boat you are directed through souvenir shops before getting to the beach

“Just fascinating”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

we loved it there, blue and clear and warm waters...would definitely recommend for a day trip!
Just be aware of the people that want to sell you the boat trip incl. the lunch, they urge you to also book the food with them as it should be so expensive on the island. However, this is not true, the food there is not more expensive than the food at these tours. Furthermore, if you don#t book the food with these rude people you can choose what you want to eat and don#t have to take their BBQ
