Private Islands for Rent - Ile Des Deux CocosOff the southeast coast of Africa, the Republic of Mauritius is perhaps one of the best kept secrets of the world in terms of tropical island getaways. With multiple islands strewn over the pristine waters, some of the world’s wealthiest people, as well as those fortunate enough to know about it, often vacation there in high-end island resorts.

One of the crown jewels of the island chain is the Ile Des Deux Cocos. This private island for rent is located in the heart of the Blue Bay Maritime National Park and rises from the crystal clear waters with its tall forestry to create one of the most impressive-looking islands you’ll ever see for its size.

Because it’s an island chain, there’s no sense of being deserted while you’re staying on Ile Des Deux Cocos.

At an impressive 2,100 acres, Forsyth Island is far more like a resort than it is a private vacation location. The sprawling landscape is covered in greenery, wraparound beaches, private homes and much more. The peaks of the island reach upwards of 1,000 feet and the overall land mass is everything you think of when you hear the word “island.”
