The Seychelles

THE SCATTERED JEWELS OF THE INDIAN OCEAN

The Seychelles are made up of 115 islands lying between four and ten degrees south of the equator in the Indian Ocean. Only 60 of the islands are inhabited and the Outer Islands are considered the hidden jewels of the Indian Ocean, being largely unexplored and unpopulated due to their remote location and unspoilt nature.

DESROCHES ISLAND

Located in the Indian Ocean only 230km from Mahé Seychelles, 5° South of the equator, Desroches Island forms part of the Amirantes Archipelago, regarded as some of the most pristine and mystique in the world – gems passionately protected by the Government where only sustainable development under one operator per island is permitted under exceptional circumstances

BLESSED BY NATURE

Desroches warmly greets you with one of the world’s healthiest, malaria-free climates. Strewn with coconut trees, the island has 14km of immaculate deserted beaches, allowing blissful peace and tranquillity. Miles of soft, sandy beaches and crystal-clear, blue waters make Desroches a refuge for romance, adventure, and an exceptional family or couples destination for diving, snorkelling, fishing, watersport and simply relaxing in the unparalleled beauty and serenity of nature.

Situated only 7º south of the equator and outside of the cyclone belt, Alphonse Island is blessed with one of the world’s healthiest climates and gorgeous, consistent weather. Desroches offers guests year-round summer days with temperatures seldom dropping below 22°C (72°F).

The North-West trade winds prevails from December to March, which are the hottest and wettest months with humidity averaging 65%. Tropical rain showers are usually short and sharp, doing nothing to dampen your spirits or a day out and about.

 

FAUNA & FLORA BIODIVERSITY

The Outer Islands of Seychelles holds unique biological treasures that deserve to be preserved for future generations.

Due to its remote location, Desroches plays host to a variety of endemic vegetation, animal life and exquisite marine life that call the surrounding azure waters their home. The sandy beaches and coconut forests make it a quiet retreat as well as breeding ground for a host of migratory seabirds and turtles.

With over 130 bird species recorded, guests can expect glimpses of Red-footed boobies and frigatebirds. Desroches island is also home to a small reintroduced population of Aldabra giant tortoises.

The waters beyond are home to an underwater world that inspires and excites. Heading further away from the golden sandy beaches, the blue waters hold awe-inspiring coral reefs with exotic, colourful creatures of all shapes and sizes. The reefs are made up of gigantic sea fans and walls of thriving ecosystems.
