Quite, relaxing and not to many tourists.
Not much night life for the party people
In a nutshell
One of the best little Island in the world
While in Rodrigue I travelled by bus to the capital. Others rent a car that can be arranged by the hotel staff at a few $amount extra. It would actually be easier and more sensible to take a car. I remember having to wait in the bus for a bit while the bus driver was having a fag and talking with his friends. Did i say that everyone's so relaxed...and the day my diving instructoir decided to have a nap before the lesson bacause he was tired!!! Crusing...

Rodriguans are mainly fishermen while women often are the ones who fish for the octopus. The main spoken language is creole while English and French is officialy used.
During the weekend most inhabitants would be at the corner store or the "pub" to play cards, dominos and enjoy a good glass of rum.
Their traditional dance is slightly different from Mauritius. Slower in their moves and "cadence".

While you are enjoying the beach in the morning, do not leave your belongings unattended or go for long walks...there is simply no beach in the afternoon when the tide is high. Always check with hotel staff about these things.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Casual attire, bathing suits, sandals, runners for long walks. A little jumper might be handy, in case of cyclone it might get a bit cold and windy...just joking but choose the holiday period carefully before booking your trip.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Mosquito repellent
Photo Equipment: C'mon you're going on an exotic tropical holiday...you'll love to take beautiful pictures. You'll find photo stuff at the hotel or store but might be more expensive to buy it there.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: There are few hawkers on the beaches trying to sell their seasonal and yummy fruits, handicraft made jewels (bijou coco) or sarongs...have some cash handy because if you are good at bargainning, you'll get them cheaper than the market price or should I say "tourist price"
