Summary of the Beach Inspectors
Paradise could easily be given the alternative name of Ile aux Cerfs. This idyllic island situated east of Mauritius has got everything you need to enjoy a fantastic day at the beach. The boat journey from Trou d'Eaue Doche to this small island is one to be enjoyed and on arrival you be welcomed by lush forests, turquoise-blue water and a brilliant, white sandy beach. This place has got everything you could wish for. There is a charming little restaurant serving everything you need and if you are looking for peace and quiet, you can walk to the more remote part of the island where you will be completely undisturbed.

Ile aux Cerfs - The paradise island

Mauritius is without doubt an idyllic island and almost every beach could be described as a dream beach. However, Ile aux Cerfs defies description. This little island is really one of the most beautiful places on Mauritius and should certainly be on your list of places to visit. So how you can you get to this dreamy beach? In Trou d'Eaue Doche you will find several places where you can pay 400-900 rupees to be taken by boat to this little island.

On arrival you will notice that this version of paradise is no longer an insider tip. This is not a problem though, as there is still plenty of room for everyone. There are many sun-loungers and parasols at the front of the island and here you will find a lot of tourists. However, you can still walk through the shallow water whilst enjoying the spectacular view of Mauritius.

Towards the back of the island is a large meadow where many local families meet up to relax over a picnic and play games, especially at the weekends. If you are looking for somewhere isolated and romantic, then you could walk for about 10 minutes to a nearly deserted, brilliant white sandy beach where you can enjoy peace and quiet and the sound of the ocean.

There is also an 18 hole golf course on the island, as well as a climbing park which stretches along the entire island, while several providers offer parasailing. Diving and snorkelling is especially enjoyable at Ile aux Cerfs, as you will see many tropical fish here.

In the Mauritian winter from May to August conditions for kitesurfing and windsurfing are also good, but you will need to bring your own equipment.
