Take The Road Less Travelled

And they’re as worth visiting as anything else in the world, whether you’re off for a Family Trip or A Romantic Adventure with your Other Half. 

With several stops along the way, here are some of the places you can end up in.



Snorkelling at Blue Bay

Getting where you want is pretty simple: Gear up for a speedboat trip with TerrOcean.

With six departure points namely from Saint-Géran, Long Beach, Prince Maurice, Four Seasons, Anahita and Shangri-La, get ready to be amazed by the turquoise blue water of the Mauritian lagoons at Trou d'Eau Douce, Eau Bleu, Blue Bay and more. 


Explore A Stretch of Paradise at Ile aux Cerfs



Experience the thalassic buzzing world of underwater life and colorful corals by taking a swim across the calm clear water of Ile aux Cerfs with TerrOcean.

As an islet, Iles aux Cerfs offers a variety of things you can tick off from your bucket list, including diving into the largest lagoon of Mauritius, parasailing or simply enjoying a proper tanning session while sipping on a cocktail.



Do terms like Ox Wood, Pipe Wood, Rat wood and Bottle Palm ring a bell to you? Aside from water activities and on-land fun adventures, Ile aux Cerfs is home to numerous trees you can rarely find elsewhere.

If you’re lucky enough, you’ll even get a chance to see rare orchids in full bloom!

The Grand South-Eastern River is the longest river of Mauritius with the most beautiful waterfalls and dies down near a beautiful Island called Ile aux Phare which is only accessible by boat.

This tiny rocky island located at the Grand Port Bay hosts a time-defying lighthouse which still stands tall today. 




The particularity of this islet is its diversity of sea urchins, an ideal place for you to take a dive if you’re up for an underwater expedition.

From fun facts to a piece of history, Terrocean Travel Guides make sure you don’t miss anything while you visit both the islets and spectacular waterfalls of Eau Bleue along the way.
