Rodrigues Half-Day Guided Hike
Explore the South-East region of Rodrigues through a delightful half-day guided hike provided by Deals.mu.
Hiking in Rodrigues will give you a much-needed break from the Mauritian hectic life and urban commotion. This hiking tour in Rodrigues is a wonderful treat for anyone looking to unwind and revitalise themselves in nature.
During this hiking tour that will start at Montagne Chérie, you will tread along the South-East coast of Rodrigues, which hosts some of the most beautiful beaches of the island. You will get to admire the clear lagoon with low coral cliffs, white sandy beaches and surrounding casuarina forests. Further south, where less coral reefs are found, you will discover a secluded bathing spot between two cliffs, known as Trou d’Argent.
The unspoiled beach of Trou d’Argent is an easy walk to the St. Francois village (the ending point of the hiking tour). The cove of Trou d'Argent is a charming sandy beach protected by two magnificent cliffs; a pristine spot pounded by waves rushing in through a gap in the coral reef. Enjoy this amazing hiking trip in Rodrigues and explore its best hike trails.

Lying on the north coast of Rodrigues, Port Mathurin is a beautiful village that serves as the capital as well as the main harbour of the island. Unmissable sights include its lively market and a splendid viewpoint on Mount Fanal, amongst others. Port Mathurin is different from other capital cities of the Indian Ocean, be it Port Louis (Mauritius) or St-Denis (Reunion Island), because of its smaller size. It has an almost eerie atmosphere; there’s no traffic jam and no rush at all.
