Island Hopping Around Mauritius

4 1 Reviews | Add your review

Mauritius is a country with plenty to do on the mainland. From exploring the iconic botanical gardens of Pamplemousses to touring the Saint Aubin Sugar Plantation, there’s enough to keep a traveler busy for days. And while the mainland lends itself to tropical adventure, a trip to Mauritius isn't really complete without an excursion to one of its incredible surrounding islands, where untouched beaches prove to be some of the world’s most beautiful.

Ile aux Cerfs
Perhaps the country’s most breathtaking beach, Ile aux Cerf and its sandy shores offer a private wonderland for travelers looking to relax, unwind and recharge. Over 100 hectares of pristine beach, lush tropical foliage, tantalizing restaurants and even a world-class golf course make this island a hub of luxury.

Ile des Deux Cocos
Located below the southern coast of Mauritius, this true tropical paradise offers travelers pristine stretches of hawker-free sands, transparent waters and a quiet escape from the hustle of the mainland. Travelers love the glass-bottom boats that travel from the mainland, as they’re perfect for viewing dozens of species of tropical fish that call this water home. 

Benitiers Island (L’Ile aux Benitiers)
Don’t let the jagged black rocks of this remote island fool you. Crystal clear waves lap against the shore of this island, which has calm waters that prove to be some of the best for spotting dolphins and whales on a trip from the mainland.
