Enjoy a day relaxing on one of the idyllic islands that surround Port Luis on this leisurely full-day escape.


From the pier, it's a scenic drive of just over one-hour to the jetty at Point-Maurice, where you will board your shuttle boat for the transfer across the water to Ile-aux-Cerfs. This tranquil island is a true open-air retreat which lies just off the coast from the Fisherman's village of Trou-D'eau-Douce.


There are no deer (cerfs) remaining on this 195 acre island that is covered with casuarinas, coconut trees and flowering bushes. As you step off the boat, you are greeted by pristine white sandy beaches that are perfect for sunbathing, and the translucent turquoise waters that lap at the shoreline provide for some swimming opportunities.


For the more adventuresome, the boathouse located here has water skis, pedal-boats, sailboards and laser dinghies available for hire (cost is not included in your tour price). During your visit, you will be treated to a complimentary lunch at the Sands Grill restaurant and there is also a bar available for those who wish to purchase alcoholic beverages.


In the afternoon, you will board the shuttle boat and head back to the mainland where you will be transferred back to the pier and your awaiting ship.
