Just a short flight from Mahe, Desroches Island offers holidays with superb opportunities for scuba diving over the coral reef along its southeastern coast.
Desroches is the only island in the Amirantes Group that offers accommodation. The exclusive and elegant Desroches Island Resort is fringed with powder-soft beaches shaded by groves of coconut palms and casuarina trees.
There is an astonishing variety of marine life inhabiting its warm, turquoise waters, which has earned the island a superb reputation for both diving and fishing. Back on dry land you will frequently encounter the giant tortoise which roam freely around the former coconut plantation.
With its blend of unspoilt beauty and romantic isolation, a Desroches Island holiday is perfect for nature-lovers and honeymooning couples alike.
