Ile Cachée, or ‘Hidden Island’ in English, is a small, beautiful islet located about 50 metres from Cerf Island in the Sainte Anne Marine Park. The water surrounding the island is never particularly deep, but at low tide it recedes completely, allowing you to simply walk across the sand from Cerf Island to reach this isolated spot. Alternatively, it is possible to reach Ile Cachée at high tide with a boat. The water in this area is shallow enough to make it safe for swimming and snorkelling, and the coral reef ensures that there is some beautiful underwater scenery on offer. The island itself is also beautiful, making it great for photographs. It is also rumoured that pirates once buried some of their stolen treasure on Ile Cachée, so the adventurous among you may wish to go looking for it! Ile Cachée is unique in that you can reach it on-foot, and its beautiful scenery and proximity to Cerf Island are really appealing. Despite its beauty, the island is virtually always empty, and its separation from Cerf really allows you to escape everything and feel the wondrous feeling of complete solitude, peace, and quiet, making Ile Cachée a unique prospect anywhere in the Seychelles.
