Enjoy a stress-free day on one of the most beautiful islands in Mauritius. We take care of it all: private hotel pickup and dropoff, transportation to and from Ile aux Cerfs in a speedboat, a barbecue lunch, and plenty of drinks (including beer, wine and rum). You'll even have the opportunity to view a live sega dance. Spend the day swimming, suntanning, relaxing and exploring this tropical paradise.
First of all, we would like to point out that the hotel pickup was on time and the taxi driver was a very polite man. The speedboat tour was okay, but nobody told us anything. We did not know how long our stay would be at the boat or if we have to follow any instructions. At the island Ile aux Cerfs we got off the speedboat and we went for a walk. The sea was knee-high but clear, it was not possible to go swimming at the one side of the island. The other side was too windy, the waves were too high.
So we decided to relax at the beach at the sunbeds - but the use of these had to get paid.
A part of the island is private, so you are not allowed to enter this area. The other part is full of attractions like banana boat etc., which got promoted very loud and vehement.
To sum up, if you don't want to do some touristic attractions but you want to have some peace and quiet, this is definitely the wrong island. Although June is not the peak holiday season, there are lots of people.
The lunch (BBQ) was okay too. The drinks were included as well. At the island where we had lunch there was no toilet, electricity or flowing water. Anyway, we were full up - the taste of the meat was not overwhelming.
For us, this trip was disappointing. We do not recommend it.
Thanks for your comments. We're glad you found our driver professional.
It is true that Ile aux Cerfs can be crowded at any time of the year, as it is one of the most popular attractions in Mauritius and therefore is not the best place to find peace and quiet. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your vacation in Mauritius!
