#1 of 7 in Outdoors in Cap Malheureux
Take a catamaran or speedboat out from the mainland to enjoy a bit of relaxation and exploration at Ile Plate Beach. Go snorkeling or diving to see the many schools of colorful fish, or simply recline on the soft white sand and cool off under the shade of the trees that line the shore. When you start feeling peckish, make sure to check out the little stalls selling freshly cooked, locally caught seafood.

    We made the trip to the flat island today (August 7, 2017) with my boyfriend and 6 others. Beautiful, magical, magnificent, these are the words that come to mind to describe this day. We went with Martial, owner of "The Seagull" and his mate, Reza. We took the sea at 9: 00 (for arrival at 10:30) and went about 15:30 (for a return around 5 pm) so 5 h on the spot. Everything went perfectly well. Martial has prepared a great BBQ (chicken and sausage pickled by his wife, as well as fish), accompanied by a salad of rice. To end on a sweet note, we tasted flambéed bananas. Martial and Reza were really friendly with us and have been able to create a great atmosphere. For the success of the free time, Martial gave us very good advice about the ride or snorkeling. This is an enthusiast who loves his job. This changes services of Grand Bay catamarans, which put to sea late and leave early island Gabriel, located in front. I had the opportunity to do this tour last year, and I can tell you that it was a quick trip. I recommend you to 2000% the small boat of Martial, "The Seagull" If you want to take your time and enjoy the lagoon without being frustrated by a too quick start. In a word: perfect! Thank you, Martial.

    We have made our trip to the flat island with Martial (the Seagull, located in Cap Malheureux), in may 2017. The flat island is beautiful! The most beautiful we have visited Mauritius. But go especially in the company of Martial and his mate! Despite a difficult sea weather crossing, we arrived on the island with the Sun and we were amazed! Martial arrives on the scene before all other boats and above all, we felt almost alone in the world because the other boats do not stop at the same place as him (and we weren't 4 to participate in the excursion of Martial, may be due to the season?) A corner is set up on the island just for you, that sublime! These two gentlemen are caring for you, everything is perfect! Excellent menu meals and rum. Sand, turquoise water white, shady and beautiful fish to discover snorkelling area. What more?
