This tour begins with a visit to the Egrets Island. For about 1h30 you will enjoy an endemic nature with an experienced guide at your side.
During World War II , the island served as a military base by armed British and ruins from the period that still exists. The island is home to some plants that do not exist elsewhere in the world and they are the last vestige of a coastal forest that once surrounded much of Mauritius coast. Eighteen species of plants growing on the island are classified as endangered or as very rare.
You will discover native trees such as beef wood, pipe wood, rat wood and bottle palm or animals that were on the verge of extinction, we have been saved by captive breeding before released into the wild. Examples of these creatures are Pond pigeons, kestrel, skinks and also giant tortoises.

Then you will be dropped on Coconuts Island for lunch.
Coconut Island is a private island located in the middle of the popular marine park of Blue Bay in Mauritius. As the island is not accessible to the general public, you can be sure to spend some relaxful quiet hours there. If you want to spend a day away from mass tourism as practiced at Ile aux Cerfs or Ilot Gabriel, you will not be disappointed!
