Beatuful beach, perfect for sun bath, swimming, weak for snoorkeling

Beach is beautiful, quiet one, nice place to swim, hovewer I didn't find much reef to look nor shoals of fish. I wasn't afraid to leave all my things at sand and go swimming.

Well, the view is good at the beach, but you need to walk about approximately 15 minutes before reaching the beach. So for an old-aged person, it will be very difficult. I would suggest that you choose another beach instead of this one.

Go to Pointe Cotton and park after the beach at the last possible point in car and then continue with by foot. You will have approx 1-2 Kms but at some point it is hard! I recommend walking shoes. The bath really worth the walk!

Access by pedestrian walk along the southeast coast . pathway well identified with yellow spots. A place to look at the view and to listen the waves.

It is a rather long walk of a good kilometer in sandy woodland to reach the Trou D'argent white sandy beaches with large waves crashing on massive boulders. Worth a visit for those fit enough.

This is trou d'argent. It a must for people who visits Rodrigues. Quiet place...and amazing beach! At low tide its better. You can have a walk on the reef.

Although this is a great place to relax and swim, there's a lot of rubbish left behind that rather spoils the place. It's simply a lack of respect of the environment. I hope there's a clamp down soon. it would be a real shame to damage a wonderful place.

It's a little hike to get to this amazing beaches but it definitely wort it. The water is crystal clear and if your lucky you can get the beach for your self.
