Today I’m going to share Ile Aux Cerfs and Ilot Mangenie, two beautiful islands just off the east coast of Mauritius and about a ten minute boat ride from where we stayed. Mauritius itself is a very small island and these neighbouring islands are about the size of one or two football pitches.We spent the most time on Iles Aux Cerfs as Le Touessrok has a boathouse there offering various activities for free. We tried out kayaks and pedal boats and explored the mangroves, trying to catch a glimpse of the monkeys. We also took a trip by speedboat to visit a waterfall. On the way we passed lots of colourful houses and a tree filled with sleeping Mauritian bats. The bats are endangered and theres been a lot of conservation efforts to increase the population so it was amazing to see them in their natural habitat.

We stopped on Ilot Mangenie for lunch with friends; it was completely idyllic. The dogs were strays who were hoping for scraps of food; you can see James is frowning at one rather persistent canine under the table but all in all they were very well-behaved, sitting patiently next to our table. There are over 400,000 stray dogs and they all look pretty similar as you can tell from the two I photographed. Strange to think they might all be members of the same family.Mauritius Port Louis Ile Aux Cerfs Laila TapeParade Lifestyle Fashion Blog Island Tropical Beach Sunny Exterior Le Touessrok Mauritius Port Louis Ile Aux Cerfs Laila TapeParade Lifestyle Fashion Blog Island Tropical Beach Sunny Exterior Le TouessrokJames doing his best Hollister model impression.Mauritius Port Louis Ile Aux Cerfs Laila TapeParade Lifestyle Fashion Blog Island Tropical Beach Sunny Exterior Le Touessrok Mauritius Port Louis Ile Aux Cerfs Laila TapeParade Lifestyle Fashion Blog Island Tropical Beach Sunny Exterior Le Touessrok Mauritius Port Louis Ile Aux Cerfs Laila TapeParade Lifestyle Fashion Blog Island Tropical Beach Sunny Exterior Le Touessrok bard b q-3Mauritius Port Louis Ile Aux Cerfs Laila TapeParade Lifestyle Fashion Blog Island Tropical Beach Sunny Exterior Le Touessrok Mauritius Port Louis Ile Aux Cerfs Laila TapeParade Lifestyle Fashion Blog Island Tropical Beach Sunny Exterior Le Touessrok Mauritius Port Louis Ile Aux Cerfs Laila TapeParade Lifestyle Fashion Blog Island Tropical Beach Sunny Exterior Le Touessrok Mauritius Port Louis Ile Aux Cerfs Laila TapeParade Lifestyle Fashion Blog Island Tropical Beach Sunny Exterior Le Touessrok
