Rodrigues Island — 2 nights

Flung far out in the middle of the Indian Ocean, rocky Rodrigues Island sits in a turquoise lagoon surrounded by a fringing coral reef.
St Johns Church and Cathédrale St Gabriel will appeal to history buffs. And it doesn't end there: take a peaceful walk through Grand Montagne Nature Reserve, head off the coast to Île aux Cocos, tour the pleasant surroundings at Trou d'Argent Beach, and look for gifts at Care-Co.

Le Morne — 4 nights

A rugged rock crag surrounded by white-sand beaches and an emerald lagoon marks Le Morne, a World Heritage Site.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Curious Chamarel and World of Seashells. Le Morne Brabant and Bois Cheri Tea Factory and Tea Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get out of town with these interesting Le Morne side-trips: Chamarel (Chamarel Seven Coloured Earth Geopark & Ebony Forest Reserve). Spend the 9th (Mon) exploring nature at Black River Gorges National Park. There's lots more to do: cast your line with Dolphin Warrior, take in nature's colorful creations at International Slave Route Monument, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Saraswati Maa, and explore the activities along Underwater Waterfall.

Plan my Le Morne trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

You can do a combination of flight and car from Rodrigues Island to Le Morne in 4.5 hours. Another option is to do a combination of ferry, bus, and car.

Island of Rainbows and Shooting Stars
A small but surprisingly multicultural island in the Indian Ocean, Mauritius sits just east of Madagascar and offers a white-sand coastline lapped by sapphire waters. The contrasts of colors, tastes, and cultures here makes a vacation in Mauritius richly rewarding, with plenty to do along the coast and deeper inland. A tour of Mauritius usually includes long stops at the island's beaches, which serve as launching points for deep-sea fishing trips, dolphin-watching excursions, and scuba diving adventures. Farther away from the water, you can discover a paradise for hikers and nature lovers. Mauritius is made for explorations on foot, with several volcanic summits and a large national park sheltering abundant species of indigenous plants and birds.
