If you are up for a good hike and adventure, then a visit to Trou d'Argent is what you should do. We walked from Cotton Bay and had a great time meeting goats along the way. On the way back we stopped and ate at roadside place for reasonable price.

The best of this little beach that is stuck between two massive rock walls, is that sometimes when you spend the day there, no one else is there, and it is so beautiful when you go snorkeling there as you can see many kinds of fish 5 meters from the shoreline. Lucky no bus stops near here, so most tourist... More

A long walk to get there but it definitely worth it. The swim after the walk is a great reward. Try it

To go to this beach, a unique location, you have to walk for about 10 till 15 minutes from St Francois. When you come there (some people are luckely and have the whole beach to them selfs!!!) it is quiet and peace full. From both sides the rock walls protect the beach from other places, from the back the hill... More

While being in Rodrigues you should visit Trou d'Argent, It's even better than in the photos. You can access the site from St Francois or even better from Mt Cabri Est, which is on top of Trou d'Argent. If you are feeling adventurous you can continue to Anse Bouteille, which is as beautiful or even better.

From St Francois a short break for lunch at Chez Dane just before the entrance to the gate for Trou d'Argent. Good food, reasonable price and splendid view overlooking the bay. Easy walk takes about 15 minutes to get to Trou d'Argent. Beautiful, peaceful place but don't know if you can bathe there as the sea was a bit rough... More

Loved it! Took a walk from our hotel across a way marked path. This little gem is well worth the hike and we came across goats wandering loose along the way - a feature of Rodrigues!
