Introducing Port Mathurin
This tiny port is the island’s hub and, for want of a better word, its capital. The island is run from the local legislative assembly here, although it feels very far from being an administrative centre. It’s a friendly, bustling place with a fantastic market, some attractive mosques and an enjoyable atmosphere. Anyone spending any time in Rodrigues will enjoy Port Mathurin, even if just passing through en route to one of the islands’ upmarket hotels.
