Excursions / Islet Escapade

An exciting trip around the islets of the south-east coast

FULL DAY *** INCLUDED • Transfer • Guide • Lunch • Drinks • Glass Bottom Boat

From Pointe Jérôme on the south-east coast, a boat will take you to the 25-hectare nature reserve of Île-aux-Aigrettes. Managed by the Mauritian Wildlife Foundation, this conservation islet houses indigenous plants and coastal ebony forests.

The trip continues to Blue Bay and the beautiful white sand beaches of Île des Deux Cocos. After refreshments, visit the Follies, which, built 100 years ago by British Governor Sir Hesketh Bell, blends British and Moorish architecture with Creole style. Then, discover the marine environment by snorkelling or on a glass-bottom boat trip in the protected Marine park of Blue Bay. After lunch, the island is all yours to explore at leisure.
