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.

Although the sea was quite rough, the reward was a very good day on a beautiful island. The trip was cheap and included lunch on the beach. The crew took us out on boats to see sea turtles in the lagoon. Also this place has...More
