Rodrigues: Hiking the eastern beaches

The eastern coast of Rodrigues has a spectacular coastline of rugged limestone karst and stunning sand beaches. Each beach is more stunning than the previous one – a near perfect crescent guarded by limestone cliffs on both sides. No roads run through this desolate desert-like area and to see the coast one needs to hike in. Wild goats roam around strange succulent and prickly vegetation. And goats is all you are likely to encounter – no people come here – so the beaches are all yours!
