For our Honeymoon we were initially planning on a tour of Europe but the wedding exhausted us so much that we decided to go back to Rodrigues. Its lazy lifestyle was all what we needed... relax and food. My best friend drove us to the airport at 4 am and we were ready to go.
All we did in Rodrigues was just sit in the hotel and eat their awesome food.
And when we were not satisfied with what they gave us, we also ordered food in the room.
Finally we decided to go to Ile de Deux Cocos (2 coconut islands) as my wife's friend had been there.
The island was about an hour away in a motorised boat. And the view there was magical. The island is a bird sanctuary and is home to many migrating birds coming to the south from Europe.
We had someone from the Wildlife give us a guided tour of the island and the species of birds that can be found there.
On our last day, we met a family friend who happens to be a distant cousin and he took us touring around the island. He lived in the island as a teacher. We went to a buffet lunch , missing a wonderful party at the hotel.
If ever you are planning to go to Rodrigues, I will suggest you to go to Hotel Pointe Venus just for the food.
