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. Figure on Rs 600 for a taxi to Port Mathurin.
