Like Ile Aux Cerfs the only way you can get the Ile Aux Benitiers is by boat but, to me, it is very much worth it. You can charter boats along the West Coast or join a scheduled Catarman Cruises which generally operate out of Black River (you can find charters and Cat Cruises on our Tours page).
Upon arrival by boat, you will pass a local attraction, Crystal Coral Rock which is located just in front of Benitiers island and emerges from its shallow crystal blue waters.
The island itself has several local vendors selling clothing and jewelry but don't worry they aren't pushy and won't follow you down the beach! There is also a small shack of a bar where you can buy the local beer and rum.
The best way to experience is to take your own picnic with you as there are plenty of places to sit and eat in the shade.
You will love this place and it is worth you taking a full day out to experience it properly.

I've eaten at Nomad several times and experienced breakfast, lunch, and dinner setting and on every occasion, it has not disappointed.
Its relaxed indoor and outdoor setting with the tables outside under the shade of parasols or on the raised terrace especially appeals to me.
What set Nomad Restaurant aside from most places I've eaten in Mauritius is the care and attention given to the presentation of the food. As you will see from the photo gallery attached to this section, the food is delivered looking delicious and in my opinion, tastes as good as it looks.
If I have one recommendation it would be the eggs benedict. I've been a fan of this dish for many years and getting wrong is very easy. At Nomads, they have got it down to perfection with an amazing homemade hollandaise sauce, sourdough bread, pouched eggs, and crispy bacon. I can't wait to try it again!
