Information about the Northern Islets
Gunners Quoin (Coin de Mire)
Commonly known as Coin de Mire, this huge rock structure is a haven of magnificent tropicbirds such as the ‘Paille en Queue’. The islet is situated 8 km north of Mauritius, and is well known by divers as one of the best diving sites of Mauritius.
The islet’s lagoons have an average depth of 6 meters (depth ranges from 3-9 meters), with crystal clear waters offering great visibility and ideal snorkeling conditions year-round.
You will likely spot a number of native birds flying around Coin de Mire or nesting in the cracks of the cliffs. The island offers a simply breathtaking view of the whole natural scenery!
The lush Gabriel Island also known as Ilot Gabriel is among one of the most popular Northern Islets. It is located near the Round Island and the Flat Island, just some 10 kilometres north of Cap Malheureux.
The island is the most prefered islet among tourists and locals for a fun and relaxing catamaran cruise. It is extended over an area of 42 hectares surrounded by unspoiled, fine white sand and turquoise crystal-clear waters.
It is also very well-known for its safe snorkeling and diving sites; an idyllic destination for a day of relaxation on the beach.
Besides the panoramic view, the island is special in the sense that it is full of lush green vegetation and indigenous fauna and flora. Its coastal vegetation is typically of sandy dunes; a large slice of the island is covered by the Baume de l’ile Plate’, an endemic Mauritian plant. Pailles-en-Queue, a native tropical bird, hover continually and Bojer’s skink run through the rocks like quicksilver. Easy access has been made for everyone in order to explore the fauna and flora without creating any disturbance.
Flat Island or Ile Plate is another popular islet in Mauritius, located to the north of Mauritius, nearby Round Island. It stretches over an area of more than 300 acres and it is the largest islet off the Mauritian coast.
As its name suggest, the island is mostly flat, but has a single hill topped by a lighthouse. The vegetation on Flat Island is much denser than on Gabriel Island, which makes it quite particular. Also, the island harbors an internationally famous dive site called The Shark Pit where divers can witness sharks swirling within the pit for the rich oxygen available due to the crashing waves
