Went out on asailing trip. Seeing Crystal Rock growing out of the sea was amazing, with the clear blue seas surrounding it

We stopped at the rock as part of our 2-hour sea kart session with Fun Adventure, based in Grande Riviere Noire. You cannot swim there from the ile aux Benitiers. But only from a boat parked around, with fins against the strong courant. We swam...More

It was so beautiful and such a marvel to see. Would recommend to definitely add onto the trip you do to the dolphins

We had our own boat so was able to get close and enjoy this site. As it was part of a dolphin and island trip it was a worthwhile morning.

The island is extremely touristy and so is the stone but it’s nice to see how big the corals can be as it’s a landmark in Mauritius! I recommend taking a catamaran which can pass by the rock

We made it to Pic-nic sur l'ile aux benitiere, after navigating around Crystal Rock. What a cool little surprise to see living trees growing out of this small wonder!

This is a nice thing to see as it is famous in Mauritius. Unfortunately it is a very crowded place and it is said that it may fall over one day due to erosion. You can snorkel around but there are no fish as it...More

The views are beautiful here if you can get a moment where the boats aren't speeding past the iconic Crystal Rock and the waters are indeed very clear and very shallow however, there aren't many tropical fish to see and the corals are dwindling :-(...More

We took a boat from Riu Creole to Crystal Rock for snorkelling. On our first stop, we saw quite a lot of fish, but at the rock we did not see much. But, the sea is beautiful and pleasant to just hang around and enjoy...More

It's sunny; usually around 26 degrees but some times it's quiet windy (which is great for kite surfing though) It is winter season and some days there are random showers but they don't last long 😊 Enjoy your trip!!
