    5 island tour
    Visited here as part of a 5 island tour by speedboat. We loved it. Stayed for 30mins for a rest. Then onto a waterfall to feed the wild monkeys. If you go up the waterfall, the guide will ask for money. We saw dolphins out in the deep. There's an island with an old lighthouse on and one with an old prison. An island where you can't get off the boat but you can swim in the sea. The final island is bbq where you stop for a wonderful bbq meal.

    Disappointing return visit
    It's a shame the water channel has closed as much of the beauty for which this area was known has been lost. My hubby and I came 20 years ago and it was so much better then. Now it's very touristy and 'tacky'. Very disappointing as we remember it as paradise!

    Beautiful Island
    Island is beautiful and we had great experience of parasailing. We took catamaran group tour to the island that included visit to GRSE waterfall, lunch on board and isle aux cerfs island. Catamaran was just ok and the food and drinks were below average.

    Beautiful beaches and clear water
    We embarked on a delightful boat trip to a renowned island in Mauritius, a must-visit destination. During the journey, we marveled at the boat's skillful navigation through the waves, enjoying captivating performances. Our experienced driver ensured our safety and comfort. Upon reaching the island with our group of 10, we had only 1.5 hours to explore amidst a bustling crowd of tourists, making it challenging to fully enjoy the beautiful beach and sea sports. Despite the time constraints, the island's clear waters and lovely beach left a lasting impression. We also visited a tiny waterfall as part of the itinerary, which, in my opinion, didn't justify the visit. Afterward, we indulged in a beach BBQ lunch before heading back. Overall, the island's beauty makes it a worthwhile destination.

    Amazing boat trip
    We did a full day boat trip with the Aqua Soleil company. Our crew, Fabrice, Julien and Yael were amazing. The boat trip was unforgettable, we visited a few different places including Ile aux Cerfs. Everything was perfect, this was our only outing during our Mauritius (we otherwise stayed at the resort) and I can't recommend it enough.

    Beautiful island (visited with family)
    The Ile aux Cerfs Leisure Island is an incredible experience and offers picturesque surroundings in a "chic and wild" setting for a breathtaking experience of natural beauty. We didn't go with one of the organised 1-day boat-trips, as we wanted to make it more like a family experience, so I managed to find out that one can book the boat ride directly with the Ile Aux Cerfs Golf Club even if you don't want to play golf, you just pay a return boat trip. At the drop off you will be at the main beach where the bar is great, and Adrian was such a great help and provided us with great service! You can enjoy different beaches but we enjoyed the most the Golf course beach which is at the back on the island and it was a drive through the golf course (with arranged golf cart/shuttle service) . I am not a golfer but i have to say when i saw the spectacular golf course i wished i would be one ;-)

    Kevin - the most amazing host.
    Truly the most magical experience we could have hoped for. From the moment we stepped onto the boat for the private transfer we were treated impeccably. The golf resort is nothing short of spectacular . At time the sheer beauty was overwhelming and we were blessed to be able to play in such an incredible location. The course is supreme and the most beautifully maintained course we have ever played on. Truly a bucket list destination. However.... the highlight for us was the one and only Kevin. He made us feel so welcome, he was attentive, helpful, kind, funny and an absolute asset to the resort. We can't wait to return, and Kevin will be one of the reasons we return to play 'millionaires golf'. Top tip - take lots of balls. You will lose them but you won't mind.

Very nice place with many sea entertainment activities. Nice nature. It requires more shelters from the sun and fresh water showers to wash away the salt.
