If there is a pleasure that one should enjoy during a holiday in Mauritius, it is that the lagoon borders almost the whole island, and hosts beautiful islands such as Ile aux Cerfs and Ile aux Benitiers to name the best known. North of the island, the Coin de Mire ( Gunner’s Quoin), Ilot Gabriel and Flat Island, outside the lagoon, also offer beautiful scenery. Then leave your hotel or holiday rental for a few hours, it’s time to sail !
While some providers offer trips of a few hours in canoe or motorboat, we recommend that you opt for a full day on a catamaran : navigation in the wind is calm and pleasant in the Indian ocean.
Several providers offer this service around the island, and perform prices around Rs 1500 / adult (this depends on the number of participants and the lunch). Here is our selection.
– From Trou d’Eau Douce, to Ile aux Cerfs and the South East lagoon.
Contact Easterlies for more info.
– From Grand Baie, departures from Sunset Boulevard to the Coin de Mire and Ilot Gabriel.

Go for a day at sea will be a wonderful experience for your holidays in Mauritius island ! Enjoy !
