This is the perfect place to discover the enchanting underwater marine world with its superb corals, wonderful array of brightly coloured tropical fish such as the Surgeonfish, Clowns, Butterfly fish and many more.
If you prefer to stay dry you can opt for the selection of land activities including beach volleyball, giant chess and badminton. (Activity programme is subject to change.)
The inside of this small island is rich with native vegetation which you can discover by following one of the many walking trails. Of course, you can also just relax beneath one of the many palm trees and watch the sparkling ocean.The south coast of Ile des Deux Cocos offers dramatic views of the ocean pounding against the reefs and of the mountain range of Mauritius’ east coast.
Nestled amongst the trees, lies the magical “Follies” Villa. Built over 100 years ago by Sir Hesketh Bell, one of the first British governors to Mauritius. It is a place of true magic and beauty, which has been used for glamorous and hedonistic parties. The villa’s architectural style is a unique mixture of various influences and styles; a clever mix of British and Moorish architecture with a Mauritian-style interior.
Optional Activities - Available at an additional cost

Explore the Shipwreck
A glass bottom boat ride will take you to the shipwreck site outside the Blue Bay zone. You will then have one hour to enjoy swimming and snorkelling and to explore the site.
The shipwreck off Pointe d’Esny holds an important piece of the island’s history; the ship sank during the famous naval battle of Grand Port, that took place between the British and the French. The Grand Port harbour was the scene of a rare heavy naval defeat for the British empire. You can still see part of the wreck on the reefs, with remains of cannons completing the underwater scenery of this historic battle. During the 1-hour snorkelling session, you will also get to encounter a myriad of colourful fish - emperors, lionfish, snappers, jack fish, clownfish, moray eels, anemones, barracudas, amongst others.
The Islands Visit outing can be tailored to 1 or 2 hours, to suit your needs. Grab this opportunity to discover the famous picturesque islets of Mauritius, namely Ile au Phare and Ile de la Passe. Once there, you will be able to explore the islands and take pictures of the magnificent landscapes. You will also be able to get a glimpse of the small protected island, Ile aux Aigrettes. All you have to do is relax and let your inner Robinson Crusoe take over.
Ile au Phare
Also known as Ile aux Fouquets, Ile au Phare is a small rocky island, named after a lighthouse built in 1864, which was still operational until the beginning of the 20th century. It’s also where the French explorer, François Leguat was imprisoned by the Dutch. As the island is surrounded by corals, it is only accessible by boats with a flat bottom. Its turquoise waters are home to an incredible number of sea urchins, including the Priest’s cap urchin and the stone urchin.
Ile de la Passe
Ile de la Passe is a small but very historic island off the south-east coast of Mauritius. It played an important role during the famous Battle of Grand Port over the possession of the harbour between the 20th-27th of August 1810. The French Navy’s victory over the British Royal Navy at that time marks the only victory under the Napoleonic regime and as such is commemorated by an inscription on the Arc De Triomphe in Paris.
Ile aux Aigrettes
Classified as a Nature Reserve by the MWF (Mauritius Wildlife Foundation), this small island is situated a kilometre off Pointe D’Esny and was used as a military base by the British during World War Two. Of the two artillery pieces installed there, one can still be seen while having your trip around the island. Today, however, huge efforts are being made to restore the island to its former natural glory, with on-going projects to reintroduce and protect endemic flora and fauna. Hence, you won’t be able to get down on the island, the boat will take you around it.
Note: Boat capacity: 20 Pax (Minimum 4 pax per trip)
It is recommended to bring
Spare set of clothes
The Lunch Buffet is served either at tables in the open overlooking the ocean, or under the shade of a white marquee where you can sink into deep settees. Dine on delicious salads topped off with fresh herbs from the garden and grilled specialties from the buffet, while wine, beer and soft drinks flow freely. You know you're on holiday when an ice cream cart trundles past laden with freshly made tropical delights.
The afternoon is yours and culminates in a tasting of homemade flavoured rum to conclude another perfect day. Simply lie back and relax in the sun with a variety in choice of divine cocktails.
