This uninhabited islet is famous for its beautiful white sand beaches, a pearl of the Mauritian landscape.

Equipped with a mask, a snorkel and fins, you will have the opportunity to explore the seabed of the lagoon before heading to Île aux Cerfs. The skippers will cook grilled meats accompanied with salads served on board (unlimited drinks). You will then have time on the island to enjoy its beaches before heading back to the mainland.
