Welcome to Rodrigues Island

Rodrigues Island

Sometimes called the 'Cinderella of the Mascarenes', Rodrigues Island is a tiny island roughly 348 miles (560km) east of Mauritius, and a popular excursion from there. Less touristy than the resort towns of Mauritius, Rodrigues Island offers visitors a glimpse of a simpler and more authentic way of life. The island itself is scenic, with unspoiled flora and fauna offering good opportunities for bird-watching, hiking, fishing, and exploring the stunning caves. The best way to get to Rodrigues Island is by plane from Port Louis to Plaine Corail Airport.
