Arriving in Destination

Flights arrive at Sir Gaetan Duval airport at the southwestern tip of the island. A public bus runs between the airport and Port Mathurin roughly every 30 to 40 minutes from 6am to 4pm. The most hassle-free way to get to and from the airport is to pre-organise a ride with your accommodation of choice. Some hotels and guesthouses will include the price of a pick-up in their room rate. If they don't, expect to pay around €27 for a two-way transfer. If you're lucky enough to find a taxi waiting at the airport, figure on paying Rs 750 to Port Mathurin.
