Best Period to Go: I have heard so much about Rodrigues Island, how the people are so nice and welcoming. I will visit this beautiful in the near future. I find those comments helpful, but would have like to know more about transport facilities, eating out and apparently water shortage are quite frequent in this beautiful island.

General opinion:  Some 560 kilometres north-east of Mauritius lies Rodrigues: the jewel in the crown of the Mascarene Islands – a 18 kilometre by 8 kilometre pearl surrounded by a crystalline blue lagoon twice its size. The secure waters of the lagoon and the trade winds that gently buffer the island provide many opportunities for the adventurous. Rodrigues is a wonderful playground for scuba divers who quickly fall in love with the diverse coral reef eco-system and its colourful assortment of sub-aquatic flora and fauna. Equally, the island appeals to those with a love of windsurfing, kite-surfing, sailing and fishing. ... More Thanks to its outer reef edges sitting nearly ten kilometres away from the coastline, Rodriguan waters are rich in fish. In fact, no fewer than three world record catches have been hooked here since 2005. It isn’t only those who like the ocean that will be swayed by Rodrigues’ charms. Yellows, greens and blues: nature on Rodrigues throbs with a palette of colours. Rarely will visitors encounter such a variety of landscapes in such a small area. Not to Miss: Trou d'argent classsified in 2007 as the 3rd world undiscovered shores.

General opinion: LES GENS A RODRIGUES SONT D'UNE SIMPLICITE INCROYABLE. SAUF QUE CERTAINES PERSONNES EN PROFITENT POUR ESSAYER DE LES MAL MENER. FAUT FAIRE LES CHOSES SIMPLEMENT SI VOUS VOULEZ PASSER D'EXCELLENT SEJOUR A RODRIGUES.

Best Period to Go: Summer lasts between November and April; whereas winter between May and October. African countries are known for equatorial climate. Hence, winter season would prove to be the finest one to pay a visit. January and February should be strictly avoided; as cyclones might occur.

General opinion:  Rodrigues Island is located to the north-east of Mauritius at distance of about 550 km in the Indian Ocean. The island has been named after Diego Rodrigues who was a famous Portuguese explorer. This island has a small population of 40,000 people, and it is spread over an area of 109 sq km.
Evidences show that the Arabs have been visiting the island since the tenth century with the Dutch coming in the seventeenth century. This beautiful island is the result of volcanic activities that took place some 4 million years ago. The landscape of the Rodrigues Island is dominated by ... More beaches, coral reefs and hills.
The primary occupations of the people are fishing and animal rearing and agriculture plays a very insignificant role in the economy. This place enjoys a tropical climate.

General opinion: Keep on protecting your environment. Be very careful about land distribution. Protect your identity and culture. Reduce the gap between the poor and the rich. Education is the only joker in your hand. Stand as one. Dont copy, be creative. Tourism and fishing developments requires more attention, efforts and public support.

General opinion: It's a must for Rodrigues to be independant. Rodrigues is a paradise, so let it remain so. I take example on Seychelles of France Albert Rene. Today the rupee of Seychelles is worth 4 times the mauritian rupee.
