Rodrigues Island — 9 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.
Rodrigues Island is known for parks, beaches, and nature. Your trip includes some of its best attractions: enjoy the sand and surf at Trou d'Argent Beach, take in nature's colorful creations at Jardin des 5 Sens, tour the pleasant surroundings at Francois Leguat Reserve, and delve into the lush surroundings at Grand Montagne Nature Reserve.

For photos, where to stay, traveler tips, and other tourist information, read Rodrigues Island trip planner.

Dammam, Saudi Arabia to Rodrigues Island is an approximately 20.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Dammam to Rodrigues Island. Traveling from Dammam in December, expect nights in Rodrigues Island to be much warmer, around 28°C, while days are a bit warmer, around 34°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel to Mahebourg.

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.
