Discover Ile aux Bénitiers Mauritius

Ile aux Bénitiers is as flat as the hill opposite it is high, and it is one of the best kept secrets of the southern coast. In the shape of a clam, this little piece of land is hemmed by splendid beaches sinking deep into transparent water. Nature being very much protected there, the island does not allow water sports, but it offers nonetheless idyllic conditions to relax in the manner of Robinson Crusoe. Fishermen will be happy to take you across to the island from the Mauritian coast, from the village of La Gaulette.
