Full Description

About the Private Excursion to Ile aux Chats with Lunch - Rodrigues

Pack your bags and set off on this cheerful excursion with your friends and family. Get on your rustic pirogue or a speedy rapid boat and sail off with the brightest smile as you feel the excitement rise.

You’ll be headed towards Ile aux Chats, comfortably seated in your chosen boat. Admire the silver coastline slowly becoming distant until you find yourself in the middle of the topaz blue ocean, shimmering with specks of glitter as the mighty sun hits the surface of the water.

During this customisable trip, you’ll get to decide how to spend your time- whether you wish to snorkel in the clear waters, enjoy a refreshing swim, or stop somewhere to soak in the views, your friendly skipper will try and fulfil your wishes.

Halfway to Ile aux Chats, there’s an amazing spot called Couzoupa, popular for its spectacular underwater beauty, making it one of the best snorkelling sites in Rodrigues. Now is the perfect opportunity to spot the rainbow-coloured corals, incredibly detailed fish that look like they are hand-painted, and rich coral reefs that border the turquoise lagoon.

The most amazing part is that you don’t need special diving skills or experience to explore this marine beauty; simply put on your flippers, snorkel and jump right in the crystal waters to discover stunning finned exotica and shoals of barracuda swimming with full grace.

Following this breathtaking snorkelling break, continue sailing towards the preserved, heaven-like islet of Ile aux Chats. The wavering filao trees will greet you majestically as you go ashore, whilst the white sandy beach unfolds wonderfully beneath your feet, with the lovely birds chanting melodiously for the warmest welcome.

You might choose to explore the islet straight away, or take a few moments to soak in the idyllic views and serene vibes to calm your spirits before venturing out in the wild. Walk through the lush vegetation, breathing in the crisp air, basking in the peaceful atmosphere of the nature reserve. Keep an eye out for the colonies of noddies birds flying around as well as other magnificent living beings that dwell on Ile aux Chats.

After your fun expedition, your belly might start growling. The exquisite 3-course meal with a succulent fish carpaccio or the flavour-filled BBQ lunch will satiate your hunger in the most wonderful way, while the cooling drinks will help quench your thirst. Coupled with picture-perfect panoramic sceneries, this lunch experience on the beach will be one of the most memorable parts of this excursion.

The hearty lunch calls for a walk since you’ll be super full and energised. Take a stroll on the beach with your loved ones and click beautiful family pictures with various shades of blue water and sky in the background. You might luxuriate in the sun for a nice little tanning session or just stop and view the hypnotising waves crashing against the reefs.

At the end of the day, it’ll be time to bid goodbye to Ile aux Chats and hop back on the boat. On the way back, make sure to make the most out of the shining sun and the pleasant views surrounding you, be it to get the islander glow, or to relax and reconnect with your favourite people in the calm setting.
