It takes around 1h30 from the shore to Ile aux Coco by boat

Ile aux Cocos is a natural sanctuary for seabirds, as well as his twin sister, Ile aux sables not far away.

A wonderful small circular beach all around the island, located in the lagoon, in the South West of Rodrigues.

Located 4 km to the west of Rodrigues, emerging from the lagoon, this strip of sand is a nature reserve where thousands of sea birds have sought shelter. It is no wonder then that Ile aux Cocos has become the main tourist attraction of Rodrigues.

To reach the island, it is necessary to sail the 4 km that separates it from the main island in a pirogue. The voyage sometimes turns into an adventure when the tide is low. At certain places, corals and rocks are just above the surface of the water, while at others, one needs to steer clear of a sandbank to avoid being stranded.

The lagoon is so shallow that the last kilometre will be covered by foot, in a few centimetres of water. This gives guests ample time to admire the island.
