Back to nature
Described as a well-preserved Eden in the Indian Ocean, Rodrigues is tucked away from the excesses of modern consumerism and offers instead the opportunity to step back, unwind and rejuvenate on this small island, which is about one hour and half flying time from Mauritius. The day starts early in the small houses scattered on the hilly landscape. On the lagoon, the narrow canoes set out for a day’s catch. Hotels and restaurants keep to the local island’s character and offer a lively and spicy cuisine concocted with fresh local produce. The best way to visit Rodrigues is by foot. Lace up your sneakers and walk through lush forests or on the trails through the villages. People will greet you on your way and you may even be offered a refreshing glass of lemonade.
