Ile aux Cerfs, Mauritius

Island Beach Must See
An uninhabited island in the largest lagoon in the country, Ile aux Cerfs offers relaxation and activity in equal measure. The 87 hectare (214 acre) island boasts shining white sand beaches and thick, lush plant life, with wilder areas ripe for exploration. More manicured parts balance things out with golf courses and beach resort entertainment, including bars and restaurants. The island gets its name from the stags brought here to be hunted for sport. None remain on the island today, but the wide sandy beaches offer sport of a different variety, with multiple companies renting out equipment and providing lessons for snorkeling, diving, parasailing, sailing, and more. Note that crowds of both locals and tourists arrive by midday. Discover how to plan a Mauritius trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.

  • How can you not go to the most famous place of Mauritius? We start from Flic en Flac by private coach and after more than an hour to arrive at the port. With a small boat bring us to the catamaran. After a while of sailing we descend from the catamaran and return the boat to go to a small waterfall in a Creek. Some monkeys living on the cliffs. A few minutes later we return to catamaran and continue browsing. At approximately 12 o'clock lunch on board. Well organized with fish, vegetables, fruit, soft drinks and rum. Possibility of swimming and snorkeling (fins and masks available onboard). After lunch, in half an hour we arrive near the island of deer, we must go on the boat we landed. Some bars, restaurants, a shop and a chance to do some water sports. Appointment at 15. What do you do at this point? a bath, a ride then you wait ... or lying on the beach in the Sun or on the sun loungers provided by the bar at 11 euros each for the whole day (light you have left an hour available because the boats arrive and depart at once). Honestly I expected something much more beautiful ... Beautiful catamaran ride but I don't think I would do it again.

  • The catamaran journey takes so so long to wait ca 1.5 hrs because you can make parasailing ride u there after about a half hour. Then to the waterfall u lunch. It consists of soft drinks all incl u eat a lunch of chicken part, a Würstel u mini fish with rice. At the end. Around 13.30 two hours of time on the island. There are 2 restaurants u many concerns. Then quickly back. So many people like the similan Islands are not, there's I like it personally but better

  • A very very beautiful island. The beaches are fantastic. The water is crystal clear. A good place to go snorkeling and kayaking. The island is well maintained. Note: the island closes by 6pm.
  • Best beach to visit in Mauritius, you can also get water sports there, but better you prefer spending time with your loved one, with beautiful view.
