Information about Ile aux Benitiers

Benitiers Island

Located in the South Western Coast of Mauritius, precisely 500 metres away from the coast of La Gaulette, Benitiers Island is a large coral sand island approximately two kilometres long, 500 metres at its widest point and 65 hectares in area.

The island itself has very little biodiversity value since it has a highly modified vegetative cover and is used as a coconut plantation. On the northern tip of the island there is a small colony of migratory sea birds.

The lagoon is vast and shallow with large coral fields in relatively good health. The region around the island is the fishing ground of locals who for years have used the islet for leisure purposes and a stopover when fishing in the lagoon.

The sea is shallow and almost calm throughout the year. The majestic Le Morne Brabant gives an absolutely incredible view in the backdrop. You can also have the chance to spot the dolphins and even whales on the scenic trip between the mainland and Benitiers.
