Ile Aux Cerfs- The Island of Deer...!!

Ile Aux Cerfs in French translates to Island of Deer in English. Situated off the main island of Mauritius, Ile Aux Cerfs is an exotic island with white sands and blue waters everywhere. In contrast to its name this island does not have any deers.





A long drive from my resort in Bel Ombre took me to Trou d Eau Douce, a beautiful fishing hamlet on the eastern coast of Mauritius. From there I was transported on a speed to this beautiful Deer Island. The sea changed colours as i travelled from the main land to Ile Aux Cerfs. This lovely island is quite prominent on the tourist map and is also frequently visited by the locals. Its a nice destination for a day's picnic.




I strolled across the island and collected a couple of beautiful shells and corals. Ile Aux cerfs also boasts of a five star hotel, a golf course and a lot of water sport activities. The island was swarming with European and Indian tourists. It is claimed that it takes more than 3 hours to cover the whole island by foot. Being a lazy soul I decided against that adventure and instead sat in the shade and enjoyed the scenery.



With nothing much to do than lazing around I spent the evening staring at the blue waters and the white yachts in the distance. This island must definitely be on the list of places to visit in Mauritius. Except for the crowd, this beautiful tiny island is definitely a paradise.

Signing Note: If not a writer or a poet, any visitor to this island would definitely turn into a day dreamer...!!
