Not worth it. The island is beautiful in its own rights but definitely not worth the 1 hour plus of travelling here to see it. Go to pereybere or ile aux cerf instead. The island is really small and there’s simply nothing much to do...More

If in catamaran cruise this is a stop where they leave you for about an hour or two to spend time. There is nothing great about the place apart from the fact that it's a serene place which has not been commercialised yet. The greatest...More

Nice little island with a great beach. We visited on a catamaran day trip from Grand Baie. Opportunity to rent Sun loungers and umbrellas on the island but no other services. Good snorkelling if you swim out from the beach.
