Explore Rodrigues

Overview

With its sumptuous mix of traditions, spiritual beliefs, festivals, architecture and landscapes, your memories of India will blaze bright long after you've left its shores.

Rodrigues will seduce all those searching for tranquility or beach activities. The island proposes lots of places of interest, attractions to visit and experiences such as mountain biking or hiking the Mont Limon, exploring Caverne Patate, swimming in the blue water of Trou d’argent, discover the crafts made in Rodrigues at the Port Mathurin Market and many others.

The landscape of Rodrigues Island is a dramatic combination of mountains, valleys, lagoons and cave systems. A guided exploration of the Caverne Patate reveals playful rock formations that were created by tectonic plate movement. Above ground, the François Leguat Giant Tortoise and Cave Reserve will acquaint you with the island’s rarest plants and most laid-back residents. Hike the central Mont Limon for majestic panoramic views or dive among intricate coral reefs. Get up early to visit Port Mathurin on market day, when the otherwise sleepy village springs to life.
