About the 2 Islets Visit Ile Aux Cocos & Ile Catherine - Rodrigues
Every once in a while, we all feel like running away, to escape the daily grind and rejuvenate ourselves. To do just that, Deals.mu offers you the chance to spend a day at sea and visit two of Rodrigues’ beautiful islets – Ile aux Cocos & Ile Catherine.
Embark on a boat for a trip of about 1.5 hours off the west coast of Rodrigues to reach an exotic desert islet.
Upon your arrival to Ile Aux Cocos, you will have a guided tour of the island, which is about one and a half kilometre long and 250 meters wide. The beautiful islet borders an emerald-green lagoon and a golden beach with coconut palms, casuarina trees and colonies of seabirds, including a variety of terns and noddies.
Next, you will visit the neighbouring islet, Ile Catherine, where you will have an abundance of leisure time to spend doing whatever you like most; lying down on the beach, swimming in the lagoon or snorkelling to explore the marine world.
Lunch is also included in this package and will be served on the beach.

About Ile aux Cocos
Ile Aux Cocos, located 4 km to the West of Rodrigues mainland, emerges from the lagoon, creating a strip of sand where thousands of seabirds have sought shelter. When visiting the island, you are sure to encounter various types of birds such as the White terns (Goélettes blanches), the Mascarene paradise flycatcher (Z’oiseaux la vierge), Sooty terns (Yéyé) and Brown noddies (Macouas) amongst others. Certain areas of the island are bird nesting sites and so are off-limits to visitors.
About Ile Catherine
Located off the west coast of Rodrigues is Catherine Island, part of the 18 islets of Rodrigues which are sheltered by the vast lagoon. The island’s geography is particular; it is rocky and wild, offering a magnificent view of the Western coast from its peak. Completely deserted, it is a perfect corner to find peace and tranquillity.
