The east region of Mauritius is well known for ile aux Cerfs. A small island, 10 minutes by boat from the small fishing village of Trou d’eau Douce.
Ile Aux Cerfs
Off the east coast, 20 minutes by boat from Pointe Maurice is the island resort of Ile Aux Cerfs. Tickets for boat transfers are available on the spot. The island has two restaurants, a boat-house and stretches of beautiful beaches and a 18 hole golf course designed by Bernhard Langer.
There are no deer (cerfs) remaining on this island of 79 hectares, covered with casuarinas, coconut trees and flower bushes. As you step off the boat you are greeted by white sandy beaches for sunbathing and translucent turquoise waters for swimming and snorkelling.
You can hire water skis, pedal-boats, sailboards and laser dinghies to practice your favourite water sports (with a supplement) at the boathouse.
