  • July 2016, we depart from Gull Cove to the island at the Cocos. This island is one of the many islands surrounding Rodrigues and serves as sanctuaries for seabirds that inhabit mainly the terns. The walk takes place in the dugout and the guide brings the snack. After arriving in junk of the island about 500 m, and because we are in the winter, so tide must go on foot. After investigation there is only 50 cm of water in this season so we can even walk on the side (but I do not recommend). In short plan good shoes because barefoot it hurt a little bit. After the visit with the guide of the island, and disturb many birds you have the open field to restore or circumnavigate the island except on space delimited and forbidden that protects the nesting. The menu punch, rice and fish a treat. You may prefer this ride of the island the COMMIES in the summer with the high tide, you will avoid to walk and damaging the reef. Not to be missed.
