Spend a day on an almost desert island

Relaxing day away from mass tourism in Mauritius

If you don’t want a spend a whole day on a catamaran among around 30 persons, be on an island where there will this amount of persons multiply by 25 or 30, then you have the option to rent a boat and organize your own private excursion and spend the day on a remote island just like Robinson Crusoe! But first of all, you must be able to afford it because boat chartering will cost more than normal group excursions. There are two places in Mauritius where we can bring you for such destinations; Amber Island in the north of Mauritius and Vacoas Island in the south-east where you will be able to spend an idyllic day just the two of you or among family or friends.
