Head to this uninhabited island of pristine white sand for glorious beaches, fantastic watersports and a superb golf course.
Off Trou d’Eau Douce lies Ile aux Cerfs, an uninhabited island which has been transformed into a tourist attraction, with miles of beaches, numerous watersports and a handful of restaurants. It is marketed as a ‘paradise island’ and is a popular excursion but many travellers find it too touristy and overpriced. The island has a total area of 300ha, much of which has been transformed into the superb Le Touessrok Golf Course.
