Rodrigues - the forgotten island in the Indian Ocean
The 8x18km small island of Rodrigues is one of the Mascarene Islands and is
located in the Indian Ocean about 600km east of Mauritius.
Its volcanic origin expresses itself by a chain of peaks
and green valleys cascading across the island.
Sugar cane fields like on Mauritius are rare.
Rodrigues is surrounded by wide coral reefs and 17 small, uninhabitated islets.
Because of the reefs, large lagoons have been formed in the south and
west of the island. However, the most beautiful sand beaches can be
found in the south-east and the east.
On Rodrigues the time seems to stand still. About 6000 of the 37000 residents
live in the small capital of Port Mathurin and the remaining population as farmers or fishermen
scattered over different villages. On Rodrigues the nature still rules
the daily procedures of life.
The climate of Rodrigues is tropical with south-east winds throughout nearly
the whole year and an average humidity of 60-70%.
The months of June to October have the least amount of rainfall and
temperatures can vary between 14°C and 25°C. During the rainy months
of December to March the temperatures can rise up to 30°C.
