Ile-aux-Cerfs is a real open-air retreat off the coastal village of Trou-Deau-Douce on the East coast. You will be driven from your hotel to Pointe-Maurice and transferred within minutes by shuttle boat to the island. There are no deer (cerfs) remaining on this island of 79 hectares, covered with casuarinas, coconut trees and flower bushes.
As you step off the boat, you are greeted by white sandy beaches for sunbathing and translucent turquoise waters for swimming and snorkelling.Â You can hire water skis, pedal-boats, sailboards and laser dinghies to practise your favourite water sports (with a supplement) at the boathouse. There is a bar and lunch will be provided at Paul & Virginie, restaurant. Board the shuttle back to the mainland in the afternoon to catch your coach.
