About Ile Aux Cocos

Ile aux Cocos is undergoing a growing craze - it has become the main tourist attraction of Rodrigues.

Located 4 km to the west of Rodrigues mainland, Ile aux Cocos emerges from the lagoon, creating a strip of sand where thousands of seabirds have sought shelter. When visiting the island you are sure to encounter various of birds such as the White schooners (Goélettes blanches), the virgin bird (z’oiseaux la vierge), Sooty terns (yéyé), and “macouas, maleines” - there are thousands of birds to discover making it the ideal destination for bird watchers.

Ile aux Cocos Island is covered with coconut trees, casuarina trees and a great variety of prickly shrubs all scattered along its beautiful long sandy beaches. 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, you need to steer clear of a sandbank to avoid being stranded. The lagoon at Ile Aux Cocos is so shallow that a big part of the sailing trip to this island can be covered on foot walking in the shallow water.
