Your hiking trip will start at Mont Lubin and you will go down towards the centre of the island, towards the big cliff where the gorgeous paille-en-queue birds nest. Take in the beautiful panoramic views as well as the sight of beautiful paille-en-queues dotting the blue sky and occasionally breaking the silence with their cries. This thrill-packed adventure is especially designed for nature and adventure enthusiasts to have the perfect rejuvenating experience while on holidays. 

The adventure is far from over! Continue your journey by going down to Port Sud Est. Be sure to bring along hiking shoes (compulsory), spare clothes, towel, hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, masks, tuba, flippers, mosquito repellent and water so that you can keep going without any hassle.

This enthralling hiking trip in Rodrigues will allow you to discover the island’s undulating and hilly landscape and the breathtaking views it offers. So, make the most out of your day and click as many instagrammable pictures as you’d like as these moments won’t come again.

To give you an energy boost after your hiking trip, a succulent table d’hôte lunch at the restaurant La Caz Mama in Mont Malgache will be served. You’ll have the privilege to enjoy the local cuisine made from fresh produce and eat up to replenish your energy after your exciting hike.

About Mont Lubin

Situated at the heart of the island, Mont Lubin has the highest peak in Rodrigues; 393m above sea level and offers magnificent views of the island, the gorgeous geological relief, agricultural terraces, and the azure blue ocean.

About Port Sud Est

Bordered by an incredibly limpid lagoon, the beach of Port Sud Est is one of the most beautiful beaches in Rodrigues. At high tide, many rush there to enjoy refreshing swims in the cool water. At low tide, the beach attracts octopus fisherwomen who scour the shallow lagoon with metal sticks for hidden dens in the sand where octopuses shelter themselves.
