Used to be a stunning place but now ruined by tourism and lack of respect by operators on the island. The guys running the beach bar/restaurant think they have the right to play club music (Cafe del Mar would have been more suitable if you had to have music) at a volume that can be heard more than 50 metres away and wreck the peace and tranquility of the place. Further along a visitor had a speaker system the size of a suitcase and had his music full on, police walked by and took no action.

We went on a day with few visitors and that was bad enough. Must be hideous in peak season.

This used to be an idyllic location, a special place to go. No more.

Beautiful island

Great catamaran trip to the island. Picked up from our hotel and dropped back again after. Snorkelling amazing, especially as you could stand up despite being way out from the shore. Those who stayed on board could see lots of fish as the crew threw bread etc out for them. Great bbq for lunch on board then we were taken ashore for about 1.5 hours to a lovely beach where we could use sun loungers free of charge and we had dessert and drinks there too.

Nice island worth visiting

It is a nice island worth visiting, but it’s lacking a bit of facilities in my opinion e.g. place to have lunch, or just place to stay in shade.

Dump site filled with trash
Feb 2021
I went to Iles aux Cerfs with my family over the long weekend. We were absolutely shocked when we walked around the island to find trash everywehere!

From abandonned tents, palettes to refrigerator and broken furniture.....plastic bottles. It was litterally a landfill site! Bins were hardly seen around the island and were either overflowing or empty and surrounded by trash.

I DO NOT RECOMMEND A TRIP TO ILES AUX CERFS

It's disgusting and does not look like the pictures advertised online

it was very private, we went on a weekday and had the whole place to ourselves!
It was amazing we took a picnic and books and had our own island!
The swimming is great and really safe for any age group!

Terrible

My review is poor because of a number of things. First, our tour operator (Aquasail) was terrible. While the experience was safe, that's about all I can say for it. Promised a 'full day catamaran' experience, we instead got shuttled from the shore, to a parasail platform, to the island, to the lighthouse, to the waterfall ENTIRELY in speedboats. We spent about 30 minutes total on the catamaran, were discouraged from eating the food provided and thoroughly disappointed, disheartened and shivering by the time we reached the shore again at the end of the day.

If you do one of these package tours I'd highly recommend searching for better operators than ours. THis was a huge disappointment and a waste of time and money.

Oh and the Ile aux Cerfs was pretty meh. If you're staying near or on a beach in Mauritius, just stick with that and do something more interesting with your time.
