Île aux Cerfs (in English: Deer Island) is a privately owned island near the east coast of Mauritius in the Flacq District.

The island is the property of a five star hotel (The Touessrok Hotel), featuring a golf course and beaches. Every day Mauritians and tourists visit the island; they depart in boats from the village of Trou d'Eau Douce and spend the whole day on the island.

Catamaran cruises are also proposed from Pointe Jerome (Mahebourg).

Several water sports activities are available on the island.
