Dump site filled with trash
Feb. 2021
I went to Iles aux Cerfs with my family over the long weekend. We were absolutely shocked when we walked around the island to find trash everywehere!

From abandonned tents, palettes to refrigerator and broken furniture.....plastic bottles. It was litterally a landfill site! Bins were hardly seen around the island and were either overflowing or empty and surrounded by trash.

I DO NOT RECOMMEND A TRIP TO ILES AUX CERFS

It's disgusting and does not look like the pictures advertised online

it was very private, we went on a weekday and had the whole place to ourselves!
It was amazing we took a picnic and books and had our own island!
The swimming is great and really safe for any age group!

My review is poor because of a number of things. First, our tour operator (Aquasail) was terrible. While the experience was safe, that's about all I can say for it. Promised a 'full day catamaran' experience, we instead got shuttled from the shore, to a parasail platform, to the island, to the lighthouse, to the waterfall ENTIRELY in speedboats. We spent about 30 minutes total on the catamaran, were discouraged from eating the food provided and thoroughly disappointed, disheartened and shivering by the time we reached the shore again at the end of the day.

If you do one of these package tours I'd highly recommend searching for better operators than ours. THis was a huge disappointment and a waste of time and money.

Oh and the Ile aux Cerfs was pretty meh. If you're staying near or on a beach in Mauritius, just stick with that and do something more interesting with your time.

The high life
Mar. 2020
This is a gorgeous and exclusive island just off the coast. We booked a speedboat through Jonathan & Vanessa based in Trou d’eau Douce which also includes a nice island BBQ to get over to the island. There is a public beach area with beautiful white soft sand and warm turquoise water and plenty of activities including a bar. There is also the private bit which has a luxury golf course and some of the island’s most exclusive hotels. Definitely worth a visit.

Catamaran Cruise to Ile aux Cerfs - bad choice!!!
Mar. 2020
We went on the Catamaran Cruise to Ile aux Cerfs - which was a really bad choice.
First we drove for more than 90 minutes from Flic en Flac, then a short trip in a speedboat to see the waterfalls. Then after alltogether 2½ hours we arrived at the Catamaran. We only sailed by motor - first stop after a little mile. Now it was time to snorkel. We snorkeled for approx. three quarters of an hour. Then the anchor was taken up and we sailed to Ile aux Cerfs - again by motor. Meanwhile, lunch was served - it was fine, but there was barely enough time to eat it. At 1200 we were set ashore on the island - now we had to make up for the next two hours on the island - a tourist trap . We could not be allowed to stay on the boat, it had to be cleaned.
By 1400 we were picked up again and sailed back to the harbour - and the waiting vehicle and then it was 1½ hours transport back to Flic en Flac.
Waste of time and money!
LMC tours in Flic en Flac arranged tours, and seemed rather indifferent to our feedback!
