The least visited and least developed of the three Mascarene Islands, Rodrigues has a very African feel. It is blessed with untamed natural beauty, a stunning lagoon and pristine beaches. Visiting Rodrigues is almost like checking into a health retreat. The slow and uncomplicated way of life is an invitation to de-stress, the food is almost entirely organic and there is no better way of getting around than walking. Highlights include Port Mathurin market and Ile aux Cocos, an offshore sand islet and nesting site for seabirds.
