Head towards, Ile Aux Aigrettes, at the heart of the south-east lagoon of Mauritius. A true showcase of the efforts made over many years by the “Mauritian Wildlife Foundation” for the protection of endemic species of fauna and flora of Mauritius, this nature reserve is located at about 800 meters from the mainland’s coastline and thrives in thick vegetation, typical of Mauritius’ coastal areas.

Visitors are accompanied by guides to better discover an ebony forest, which used to be home to the dodo, as well as a nursery of thousands young plants, the ruins of an ancient limekiln and a stunning view of the Mahebourg bay.


More importantly, you are likely to come across members of the local fauna: the Mauritian gecko, the Pink Pigeon, the Telfair skink (still endangered today) and the giant Aldabra tortoise, which was introduced to replace Mauritius’ two endemic species of land tortoise, now officially extinct. Do not forget to pet César, the 70 year old tortoise! If you are lucky, you might also catch a glimpse of the Mauritian Kestrel, saved from extinction and roaming free in the island’s forest. Ile aux Aigrettes is also a particularly beautiful swimming and snorkeling spot, in a crystal clear lagoon with fine white sand surrounding the islet.
