Mauritius is a landscape with an astonishing array of natural wonders and if you ever find yourself journeying to this island nation, then be sure to keep this place on your itinerary.
Ile aux Aigrettes serves as a nature reserve as well as a place of scientific research. It is highly protected and visits are only available through guided tours.
The reserve is famous for preserving pockets of Mauritius’s coastal rainforests, providing sanctuary to a wide selection of endangered species of wildlife such as Aldabra Giant Tortoises and pink pigeon, a rare and endangered species of avifauna.
This is one of the biggest islets that can be found in the nation and is the biggest in Grand Port Bay. The islet is low-lying, and unlike the majority of Mauritius, it is formed out of coral-limestone. The ebony trees and the wild orchids of the island are natural hallmarks.
Island tours are among the most popular attractions Mauritius has to offer, and if you’re staying in Mauritius accommodation the likes of The Residence Mauritius by Cenizaro you would be able to easily procure your own tour with a little help from the hotel staff. Due to the extremely protected nature of the islet, you’re guaranteed to discover the rare forms of wildlife.
