Create an itinerary including Ile aux Cerfs
An uninhabited island in the largest lagoon in the country, Ile aux Cerfs offers relaxation and activity in equal measure. The 87 hectare (214 acre) island boasts shining white sand beaches and thick, lush plant life, with wilder areas ripe for exploration. More manicured parts balance things out with golf courses and beach resort entertainment, including bars and restaurants. The island gets its name from the stags brought here to be hunted for sport. None remain on the island today, but the wide sandy beaches offer sport of a different variety, with multiple companies renting out equipment and providing lessons for snorkeling, diving, parasailing, sailing, and more. Note that crowds of both locals and tourists arrive by midday. You can plan Beau Champ trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

  • Stunning place, but unfortunately now a honey trap. Seems all Boat trips stop here so it is full of people.

  • Been there 4 times already. Very beautiful and accessible through boat. The transfer is affordable. Can swim and chill among friends and family. There is different type of food sell in restaurants and snacks on the Island. Public access to market, bathroom and the beach. Activities are sold on beach for adult and children. Grillade, Chinese and Italian food are seen.
  • One of the best beaches in Mauritius, well worth a visit if you're lucky to have good weather. The white sand against the black volcanic rocks and the tourcoise waters is just breathtaking. We organized the trip ourselves because we wanted to spend more time on the island. We took a transfer boat from Pointe Murice jetty ( 450 MUR per adult, 300 MUR per child - includes welcome drink and sunbeds) and explored the island at our own pace. You can park the car in the parking lot of the jetty. The return transfers are every half an hour from 3pm to 5pm(last one). There is a restaurant, a bar and a gift shop on site, a bit pricy, but it is to be expected. There are a lot of water sports activities. Do go early if possible. Between 11am and 2pm the beach gets very crowded with tourists from catamaran and speed boat tours. During lunch time try to avoid the beach area where the boat tours do the lunch grills(south from the Bubble beach). The beach is quite narrow, the tables are right on the beach, behind the beach there are a lot of "private property" signs(from the golf course) and it smells of fuel due to the high number of boats. It could be quite nice outside the lunch period.
