The over-water bungalow at L ’Escapade Island resort was everything we ever dreamed of and more. Swimming in the clear blue ocean with turtles & fish 3 or 4 times a day was such a wonderful experience. You had the opportunity to do as little as you wanted or enjoy the abundance

Hi, The boat transfers are included - they should email you but if not just flick them an email and they will send you the ferry schedule and you just tell them what times you want to book and they will get it booked in for you - its super easy! :)

Day trip is still operating You may reach Escapade resort by using the hôtel shuttle boat departing from Port Moselle wharf in the dowtown. Or you may catch a Yellow or GreyTaxi Boat straight from the Anse Vata Beach (15 minutes cruise) from the 2 companies operating there and spend your day freely on the islet. Both solutions are worth. Please note the ilot Maitre is a good safe place for Kite surfing if you're interested. regards
