Trou d'Argent Beach, Rodrigues Island

4.7
#1 of 10 in Outdoors in Rodrigues Island
Experience an island getaway at Trou d'Argent Beach, a small and secluded patch of coastline. Offering clear waters, soft white sand, and an attractive rocky coastline, the beach represents a nice place for swimming, sunbathing, and snorkeling. That said, do take care when heading out into the water as the sea can get pretty rough. Study the coral washed up on the shore and explore the surrounding landscape of the sculpted cove, complete with herds of goats living on the cliffside. A visit to Trou d'Argent Beach represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Rodrigues Island driving holiday site to plot your vacation.

  • Alright, having grown up in Florida and recently been to the Seychelles, I'm a bit spoiled - but I don't think this beach really deserves the hype. It is lovely, but all the beaches along the coastal ...  more »
  • A beautiful beach to Rodrigues but in fall/winter, the waves are many and it is quite complicated to bathe because the coral reef is not very far.

  • Walk of St. Francis to gravel, coming out of lunch with Solange and Robert to St. Francis, we go to gravel by the side and so do market to silver hole. Namely that hole of money is only one of the handles of the 3rd course to be precise. This end to end walk requires one hour approximately, 2 min for the 1st anse down the beginning of trail, then 15 minutes for the second, silver hole is the 3rd 5 min only after the second. For me this is the best place to bathe because there are fewer rocks than the second and the 4th. Of course there are waves. The 4th Cove is about a 10-minute hole of money and if there is lots of vegetation, you're next. Please note that whenever you go down you are at the level of a Cove then you go back and you see the Cove from above. The 5th Cove is more sheltered and most conducive to a quiet swim if there is nobody. This ride is to do after lunch if you don't want to meet anyone or less than world in any case. A staple of Rodrigues with a hike of the easiest difficulty. We did it in slippers is tell you. Have a nice time at the silver hole.

  • The walk requires energy, lots of long stairs up and down but the ultimate destination is worth the effort. It is like a private beach - two tall cliffs on either side and a small clean beach in between. the view is amazing and the sound of the sea and waves is awesome. A must see while in Rodrigues Island. Accessible only on foot, takes around 40mins of walking to it and back. the area is quite safe.
  • Nice white-sand beach with 'super-natural' view! Expect to walk a lot as lonely path are not accessible by four-wheels although.
  • A place not to miss during a visit to Rodrigues island. Be ready for a 30min hiking in dry woods to reach there.
  • Beautiful place
  • Paradise
