I've been to Mauritius many times and every time I always take the boat trip over to Ile aux Cerfs. When your first go to the east side it's not the easiest place to locate where the boat leaves but usually there's a guy on a bicycle waiting at the roundabout who will get you to follow him down to...

Fatastic beach with very clear and warm water, white sand, long distance between the visitors. No very good restaurants around the island.

its a lovely location and place to swim clear blue water, but would advise to carry food as not much options and would advise doing parasailing as the view is great from above

Plenty of activities and great snorkelling. The trip from Ile aux Cerfs to the waterfall is a must, especially for tourists who only stay at their resorts to get a better idea of the amazing sites Mauritius has to offer.

I was on the island 20 years ago and would like to see it again. What a disappointment! The gorgeous emerald stream was still there and the sea. But the island was destroyed by various structures that simply did not fit on an island like this. Moreover, the island was crowded both with people and catamarans. The powder sand as... More

After covering a long distance from Port Loius , you reach Trou Douce & have to take a boat ride to reach Ile aux cerfs. this 30 minutes boat drive also is... More
