Île aux Cerfs Island9
Why locals love it
Mauritius has several small islands accessible through private boat tours, which are quite expensive for locals. In that regard, the Île aux Cerfs Island (literally Deer Island) is the most famous and therefore the most accessible one. No prior bookings are required as you can just show up at embarkation and bargain for a boat transfer.
Why you should visit it
Île aux Cerfs visit deals start around Rs800 per person (EUR21/USD23) for the boat transfer to the main island, including lunch and drinks. You can also add boat tours of the surrounding islands and nautic activities on-site. To access the island, you need to drive to the embarkation point at Trou d'Eau Douce.
Ask for the Southern tour - Grande Rivière Sud-Est - to see coastal areas only accessible by boat.
