Beautiful, unspoilt nature

Considered to be the jewel in the crown of the Mascarene Islands, Rodrigues Island is a place to get away from the crowds; a yet-to-be-discovered island of hidden treasure and picturesque beauty. Walks around the island reveal diverse landscapes as well as equally diverse coral reefs under water. The giant tortoises and extensive cave system are a must-see, along with the nesting birds of Cocos Island, or just relax on the white, sandy beaches.

The hotels and lodges range from 4-star barefoot luxury to chic eco-friendly, as well as guest houses and bed and breakfast options, all offering the warm Rodrigues welcome. An ideal destination for honeymooners, families, or single travellers alike, there is something for everyone on this small, but intriguing island.
