Seychelles Islands - Alphonse Island is one of the few among Seychelles’ outer islands to offer accommodation in 25 luxury bungalows and 5 executive suites. The island provides excellent opportunities for fly-fishing, deep-sea fishing, and diving in virgin waters.

 
Alphonse Island snorkelingAlphonse Island is a small triangular island barely 1.2km wide, sheltered by a spectacular coral reef.

7 degrees south of the Equator and 400km (250 miles) south west of Mahé, the Alphonse Atoll lies in the very heart of the Indian Ocean and is part of the Alphonse Group of Atolls. Incorporating Bijoutier and St Francois, these two atolls extend sixteen kilometers south from Alphonse. With no high mountains for many hundreds of miles around, rainfall at Alphonse is a fraction of Mahé’s ensuring good weather patterns and conditions just about all year round.

Alphonse Island was initially developed around the coconut industry and was also mined for guano (decomposed bird droppings). The island remains an important nesting ground for turtles and colonies of sea birds.

Alphonse Island is serviced by air from the main island of Mahé in a flight time of one hour.
