Ile aux Cerfs
Ile Aux Cerfs is a large island, of nearly 100 hectares in area, off the east coast of Mauritius close to the coastal village of Trou D'Eau Douce in the district of Flacq.

It is a favourite recreational spot for both Mauritians and tourists alike, with its picture-perfect calm emerald-blue waters.

For years the hotel group Sun Resort Ltd has operated two restaurants, a bar, and a boathouse and provided other beach amenities on the island (including toilets - this is the only developed islet with such facilities !!!).

The Sun Resort group is going ahead with a
golf project on this island, despite the general public protest against the golf course. It is worth mentioning that the group has leasehold rights on the sister island, Ilot Mangénie where access is restricted to the guests of one of the group 5-star hotel, Le Touessrok.

A
paying ferry service operated by various contractors from the mainland to the island used by tourists and the public alike. BBQ lunches, tents and various tourist operators profilerated on the island until April 200 when cooking or camping has been banned.

Some 10 minutes away by speedboat from Ile aux Cerfs is the mouth of the longest river in Mauritius, the Grand River South East. Entering the mouth of this river, one will admire the nice waterfall (it's just a little bit smaller than the Niagara falls in Canada !!!) and if water permits, swimming in one of the 'bassins' is possible.

We have a
top selling package including the ferry service, a picnic lunch on the island (feet in the sand!!) and the visit to the waterfalls for Rs. 550 per person. What a wonderful day you will spend on this piece of paradise !!!
