Was a reef, now above waterline. Okey dokey. Now if a unicorn once lived on it, then you’d be talking!

One of a kind and beautiful, you need to be careful while visiting in a motored boat as it is shallow in some areas.

If taking a boat ride definitely swing by this area. Amazing site and clear waters. Snorkeling isn’t done right there but plenty of space around to snorkel. You feel like you are in an aquarium!

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

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

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!!
