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.
