Interesting things about Rodrigues island
Rodrigues island is a delightful remote little holiday island 650 km east of Mauritius in the middle of the Indian ocean. It is entirely surrounded by coral reefs offering world-class diving and snorkeling. Thanks to its secluded location it's home to many endemic species of plants and animals that cannot be found anywhere else in the world. It is the ideal place for resting the body and mind, whilst also offering an abundance of activities including hiking in the mountains, eating out in small town tropical settings, visiting deep limestone caves and befriending giant tortoises. You will discover the breathtaking views to the blue lagoon and the lush green valleys. For the more adventurous traveler and those who have wished to fly like a bird there is deep sea fishing and the adrenaline rush of zip lining along the mountain. There is something for everyone. The island is waiting..

If you really want the calm and relaxing environment Trou d'Argent is a wonderful beach to visit. It has a sandy beach lined with heavy rock cliffs on both sides. The place is secluded and visitors can enjoy their privacy and relax. Be ready for a long walk as you will have to hike from the bus stop or parking area to get there. The name was inspired by ancient pirates who frequently visited the area and may have hidden treasures in caves nearby. This beach also offers a very romantic destination for newly married couples.

旅行者へのアドバイス

交通アクセス
Avoid ice cubes in drinks.
The food scene is fairly safe, but to be on the safe side keep in mind rodrigues is a tropical island and some basic things might not be up to the standards you'd expect. We recommend that when eating out hotels and busy restaurants are best rather than street stalls. Food should be well cooked, and eat fruit and vegetables that can be peeled. Avoid ice cubes in drinks. Always ask if unsure. Wash salads, fruits, and drink water only from the commercially available bottled water. Always carry some medication for any unforeseen stomach upset. Lastly bring along some mosquito repellent.
子連れ旅行
Travelling with children. Swimming and traffic.
For safety precaution always keep an eye on your children as the streets are quite narrow and foot paths are minimal. Also as an advice that applies also to anywhere else in the world keep watch on them when they are swimming at the beaches.
