I went here via a Catamaran and it was blissful. This is a small island but a paradise. We enjoyed our day with a nice lunch and snorkeling. The water is shallow and you can easily walk to a certain distance.

This tropical island paradise is an idyllic place to visit. Accessible by boat, day trips can be arranged with bbq lunch and snorkelling opportunities. The turquoise warm sea is a marvellous experience. Loved it.

This place is absolutely beautiful.. Me and my wife went here via the Catamaran Cruise and the entire journey was a bliss. The Ocean... The drifting landscape... a treat to watch. The island is a small one and the waters are shallow. You can walk upto a certain distance in the water.

If you do make this day trip, you must must must take the cruise boats. Going there on a speed boat will ruin the journey which is great. There are drinks, barbecues and music on the boat which makes it a wonderful experience. The island itself is small but very pretty. The reef is close to the beach and in... More

Although the sea was quite rough, the reward was a very good day on a beautiful island. The trip was cheap and included lunch on the beach. The crew took us out on boats to see sea turtles in the lagoon. Also this place has magnificent snorkeling. We saw a lot of quite big colorful fish, and my son still... More

My husband and I went here on a day trip from Grand Bay. It was quite a long boat ride, nearly two hours. It can be quite choppy as you are out on the open sea. The views are great. The beach on the island was amazing. Such soft sand and great for snorkeling. We had a BBQ on the... More

Facinating catamaran cruise. Few hours of facinating blue blue wavy sea jorney from Grand Bay and you are in one more paradise - Ilot Gabriel island. We were lucky, through the jorney we could even see dolphins - this made this jorney even more wonderful. After lunch in the boat we are heading to the beach. There... you can relax... More
