Must visit Beach

It was a good experience. The beach is very pristine and you feel as if you are on a uninhabitated island. I visited Flat Island and Coin D'Mire along with it.

Must visit sight for the beach lovers and honeymooners. You can reach here thru speed boats or catamaran cruises. It's amazing day cruise and do carry pair of swim suit to enjoy the beach. Amazing triangular landscaping with water at 3 sides.. Making the looks of the beach most attractive among all the beached of Mauritius...

We visited Flat island and Gabriel Island with catamaran. The gabriel beach is really beautiful, but we were really dissapointed and sad after seeing that the coral reef is totally dead there.

Ilot Gabriel is popular with catamaran cruises out of Grand Baie. The trip takes roughly two hours, and we were lucky enough to spot a pod of dolphins. The beach itself is very nice and sandy and the sea is very clean. Will recommend.

I went here via a Catamaran and it was blissful. This is a small island but a paradise. We enjoyed our day with a nice lunch and snorkeling. The water is shallow and you can easily walk to a certain distance.

This tropical island paradise is an idyllic place to visit. Accessible by boat, day trips can be arranged with bbq lunch and snorkelling opportunities. The turquoise warm sea is a marvellous experience. Loved it.

This place is absolutely beautiful.. Me and my wife went here via the Catamaran Cruise and the entire journey was a bliss. The Ocean... The drifting landscape... a treat to watch. The island is a small one and the waters are shallow. You can walk upto a certain distance in the water.
