Desroches

A little over half an hour’s flight from Mahe and just six km long and one km wide, Desroches has acres of shady coconut palms and native vegetation fringed by 14 km of white sand beaches lapped by crystal clear turquoise waters and sheltered by the encircling reef. The island, the pearl of the remote Amirantes coral atoll, offers some of the best dive sites in the Seychelles as well as great snorkelling right off the beach.
