Ile aux Cerfs
A popular choice amongst couples and families, this beach has powdered white sands and blue translucent waters. An ideal choice for those who enjoy relaxing in the sun and taking part in a range of activities – from banana boats to speedboats and an adventure playground for the kids.
Mont Choisy is a perfect and tranquil lagoon-styled beach which defines relaxation. If you could paint a picture of what a beautiful beach looks like, that picture would be Mont Choisy. The beach is lined by an endless amount of greenery which gives you a sense of isolation from the rest of the world. Because of the glorious length of warm sands, you’ve got space to stretch out and starfish on your sun lounger. We’ve also heard the sunsets are incredible here!
La Cuvette is short but sweet, at 80m it’s one of the shortest beaches on the island, but great things do come in small packages. The beach has a few hideaway mini-beaches which make this a majestic place to retreat to.
