Life in Rodrigues Island, a dependant island south-west of Mauritius, is far removed from the razzmatazz of big city tourist attractions. The stunning island still has an African spirit but the lure is undoubtedly the peacefulness, warmth of the locals and the solitude of sitting under a palm tree contemplating the many shades of blues rippling the ocean waters.
The bewitching tropical island exudes a laid-back ambiance and it is the unpretentious charm and unspoiled beauty that lends a very special character to it. Port Mathurin is the commercial base where you will find amenities and accommodation which include a few hotels, self-catering apartments, and guest houses. Further along the coast are some up-market hotel resorts offering luxury accommodation and excellent facilities. The secret of the restaurants’ exquisite cuisine lays in the freshness of the ingredients, the well-preserved culinary traditions handed over from past generations and the exotic local flavours and aromas. Join in on the lively rhythms of song and dance every Sunday when performers entertain audiences simply for the pleasure of it.
Rodrigues Island’s landscapes are awesome and diverse drawing your eyes from the pristine beaches to terraced cultivated fields and beyond to lush valleys rolling into dense forests sheltering the unique golden bat species. Activities in this untouched environment are abounding; from fishing, hiking, mountain biking, to scuba diving the spectacular coral reefs, bird watching and horse riding, Rodrigues Island will capture your senses with amazing experiences. Do not miss out on a guided tour of the astounding underground caves full of ancient formations. Laze on the beautiful beaches, sail on the lagoon, just relax and listen to the chirping of sunbirds, no traffic, no masses of people, just blissful peace and quiet, that is what Rodrigues Island is all about, a picture perfect fairytale paradise.
