In the heart of the Indian Ocean, far to the east of Madagascar, is the enchanting Rodrigues Island. This spit of land is the smallest of the Mascarene archipelago. With 80km of coastline, mountainous terrain falling into valleys, and terraced fields, the atmosphere radiates with tranquility. Reaching the island can be done via flights from Mauritius or Reunion Island to Sir Gaetan Duval Airport
. A mixed cargo and passenger boat also services the island for those willing to experience a nearly two-day journey at sea.
Rodrigues Island sits a couple thousand kilometers from the coast of mainland Africa. To travel here would be to purposefully seek solitude in a naturally tranquil setting. Trou d’Argent Beach is quite the highlight for the island, and kitesurfing and diving are among the most popular recreational activities, and there are even schools that offer training in the sport. Simple strolls through the land also offer just as much for the eyes to feast upon, enthralling eco-tourists and photographers with its diversity and beauty.
Being such a small and remote island, there is a staggering number of properties to choose from. Find the most suitable accommodation for you by clicking on our interactive map and exploring Rodrigues Island for hotels and must-see destinations.
