Isle aux Aigrettes

A visit to the Isle aux Aigrettes or the Egret Island undeniably enters the list of the most interesting things to do in Mauritius. Believed to be the last resting place of the former avian inhabitant of the island, the dodo bird, this locale is a beautiful and tranquil site that one should veritably pay a visit. Formed by a small coral outcrop and bounded by the limpid ocean water, the island is the current home of gigantic Aldabra tortoises which can be seen doddering amicably under a dark canopy and the stunning pink pigeons that dwell in the semi-wild.
