Trou d'Eau Douce: Southeast Coast Island Adventure

5. Trou d'Eau Douce: Southeast Coast Island Adventure

Embark on a trip to the Blue Bay by speedboat and visit the entirety of Mauritius' southeast coast and the nearby islands in one day. The tour includes not only a visit to the famous Ile aux Cerfs island and the pristine cascade of the Grande River South East, but also to Ile aux Phares and Ile de la Passe, providing an opportunity to learn a bit of the history of Mauritius in the colonial period. The site of Ile aux Phares is where, as the name suggests, an old lighthouse dating back more than 200 years stands, now declared a historical monument. In 1810, Ile aux Phares and Ile de la Passe were the theater of a battle between the French and the British, known as the naval battle of Grand Port, which is the only victory of the Napoleonic Navy and is also listed on the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. In addition to the historic aspect of the islands, you will be made privy to a striking sight within the water. The contrast between both sides of the island is breathtaking: on one side you will find the lagoon turquoise and calm, and on the other, the big waves of the Indian Ocean smash against the breakers of the island. You will then go to Ile aux Aigrettes for a swim then back to Ile aux Cerfs, where lunch will be served. Relax and sunbathe or just chill out on the beach or in the crystal clear water of Ile aux Cerfs before returning to the meeting point in Trou d'Eau Douce.

This trip has to be on your “to do” list. The tour operator, the taxi pick up and drop off, the boat operator were very professional, kind, and informative throughout the whole day. It is a full day of activities, the food was fantastic, the rum tasting was an added bonus. You will not be disappointed if book with this operator. 5 star from start to finish.

Excellent trip. GetYourGuide states that there are some pick-up points not included in the booking. Ignore this, the local guide confirmed that all locations on the island are included.

Very nice excursion. Deer Island is sublime… It's very nice to see the other islands. The staff are friendly and the food is great. I recommend.

Very beautiful day with Virginie who made us decorate the Blue Bay maritime park. A huge variety of fish, corals and even a turtle!

Everything great, 4 islands and a waterfall, great lunch and everything more than we expected.
