Ile aux Cerfs, Mauritius

4.1
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 Beau Champ trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.

    This is the third time in mauritius and return back to Deer Island is a different experience every time, I recommend straying a bit from the crowd of the most touristic area and you'll see glimpses and most pristine.

    Visit Deer Island on a boat trip. We found the island too commercial, too crowded and we do not understand why this island was so vaunted by all.

    Beware of Sea Urchins. I got badly pierced by the thorns, n there's absolutely no warning signs put up. Had to go to the hospital to cut my skin to remove them. The island is pretty, the speed boat ride is quite a thrill. But not all that worth

    Where you can float in less than waist-deep water that's warm like a bathtub. Very scenic island off an island. A real paradise.
