About the Islets
Coin de Mire
The Coin de Mire, also called Gunner's Quoin, situated 8 km north of Mauritius, is well known by divers as one of the best diving sites of the north of Mauritius. At an average depth of 6 metres (depth ranges from 3-9 metres), with crystal clear water offering great visibility, the snorkelling conditions are ideal year-round. The island is a nature reserve and as such it is not possible to go on the island. A number of native birds have made Coin de Mire their home so you can often find them soaring in the area or nesting in the cracks of the cliffs. Keep an eye out for the famous Mauritius national bird - the 'pailles en queue. The Coin de Mire highest point is at 142 metres.
Also known as “Île Plate” in French, it is located near Round Island, at the extreme north of Mauritius, about 11 kilometres north of Cap Malheureux, the Mauritius' mainland's northernmost point. It houses one of the two working lighthouses in Mauritius. Flat Island (size of 253 hectares, is the largest of the northern islets) is mostly flat, but has a single hill topped by a lighthouse. The vegetation is heavily modified. Flat Island is a very popular venue for snorkelers, and also offers great dive sites. The island offers beautiful beaches with crystal clear turquoise water.
