Swiss Family Robinson for a day on Deer Island

sport & wellness

The pristine white beaches merging with the gradient of the clear turquoise water almost hurt the eyes. Welcome to Deer Island, one of Mauritius' most popular destinations.

 

The sun's reflections off the white sand beaches make it seem as though you're lounging on a bed of diamonds. Following a swim in the blue lagoon, which offers some of the best snorkeling anywhere, adventure calls. Behind the palm trees, dense and abundant vegetation invites exploration, as mangroves and refreshing waterfalls punctuate the landscape of this paradise.

Such adventure opens the appetite and that's good, as the island offers two popular restaurants. The Masala specialises in Indian dishes, while Paul and Virginia feature fresh seafood. For an exotic dessert, head out to sea to discover the idyllic landscapes of Mangenie Island.
