But the gem of Ile aux Cerfs is home to more than an extraordinary golf course, it has a wealth of sensational assets, which is why it’s considered one of the top tourist destinations in Mauritius. Here are some of Ile aux Cerfs’ incredible assets:
The exclusive golfer beach

The Bubble Lodge
Ile aux Cerfs is the kind of place you’ll probably want to spend at least a night or two. But the gorgeous landscapes here are totally untouched by developments or hotels of any kind which means that up until very recently, guests were not able to stay the night. All that changed with the introduction of the sensational Ile aux Cerfs Bubble Lodges (there are currently three to choose from), situated in prime spots around the island that offer everything you could ever want from a novel, eco-friendly luxury island experience. The eco-friendly Bubble Lodges are designed to allow you stunning views from the lodge itself of the amazing, lush surrounds and the starlit night sky.
Choose your perfect Bubble Lodge based on the location (secluded in a banyan tree, with the view of a lake or on the beach mere metres from the sparkling lagoon) and enjoy a private and exclusive experience on this magical island, where everything is catered for you (how does dinner under the stars served by one of the on-site butlers sound?). A stay here includes return boat transfers and a one-hour golf initiation, access to the exclusive beach and the island’s Leisure Island. Those looking for an unparalleled, once-in-a-lifetime experience should definitely book a night on Ile aux Cerfs.

There are loads of wonderful activities to enjoy on land as well, from lounging on the stunning beaches and, of course, playing a game of golf to hours spent at the adventure park zip lining and trying the Acrobranch activities (there are activities for children from the age of four as well as adults at the adventure park).
The breathtaking stretches of beach
This unbelievable tropical island is partly so popular because of its flawless beaches and reef-protected lagoon.
