The Ile Aux Cocos is situated on the west of the Rodrigues Island to the small fishing village of Pointe Diamble. From there you will start the sea trip to Ile Aux Cocos on-board a sailing boat.

A small path travels through the center of the island allows you to discover the different species of birds. The most elegant one is without any doubt the white tern (Gygis Alba), which is quite rare in Rodrigues.
Some of the species are migratory birds, like the sooty terns, which the people of Rodrigues have nicknamed “yéyé” due to their thundering cheeping; they come and stay on the island during the summer.

It is estimated that about 4500 birds can be seen on Ile Aux Cocos at any moment, guaranteeing a very unique experience for any visitor of the island.
