Discover Coin de Mire Mauritius

Unmissable because of its triangular form in the shape of a ship sail, Coin de Mire, located off the northern coast, is a heaven for birds. It is actually a nature reserve where you cannot disembark, but that you can come close to by mini-cruise. The island has a very angular outline, as if carved on purpose, and wave-beaten cliffs which form a landscape that contrasts starkly with the long Mauritian sandy beaches.
