Photographer's Note

The islands closest to the northern tip of Mauritius – COIN DE MIRE, ILE PLATE and ILÔT GABRIEL.
The distinctive COIN DE MIRE (GUNNER’S QUOIN), 4km off the coast, was so named because it resembles the quoin or wedge used to steady the aim of a cannon. The island is now a nature reserve and home to a number of rare species, such as the red-tailed tropic bird and Bojer’s skink.
