Discover Desroches Island Seychelles

150 miles from Mahé, Desroches is a coral island just over 4 miles long and less than 1 mile wide, located in the Amirante Archipelago. According to the American magazine 'Forbes', this small seaside paradise particularly favourable for diving and offshore fishing is home to one of the ten most remote hotels in the world: Desroches Island Resort, an island, a hotel. There is a 45 minute flight to get here from the capital, Mahé, but keep in mind that we're not talking about a Boeing 747 or a A380 but rather a 20-seat Twin Otter, or even better, a 8-seater Cessna! The landing strip, which covers the whole width of the island, is 200m from the hotel's reception. Desroches is surrounded by a 9 mile long beach with fine white sand and clear waters where you can easily find a secluded spot. The main spots on the island for snorkelling are Aquarium, Bombay Beach and North Point, next to the lighthouse. You may even be lucky enough in the right season to witness a sea turtle lay its egg on the beach just in front of your bungalow.
