Ile aux Aigrettes

Île aux Aigrettes off the southeast coast of Mauritius.

This small islet is surrounded by a ring of coral and ebony forest covers its landscape.

In 1965, Île aux Aigrettes was declared a nature reserve and incredible conservation work has helped create a habitat for rare species that had long disappeared from the island.

You can enjoy a guided tour, keeping a lookout for rare plants, reptiles, tortoises and beautiful birds, including the pink pigeon, Mauritius fody and Mauritius olive white-eye.
