Of all the islands in the Amirantes Group, Desroches is the closest to Mahé (230km southwest) and the only island in the group offering accommodation. This coral island measures 5km long and 1.5km wide, boasting 14km of immaculate beaches that fringe a lush grove of coconut palms interspersed by casuarina trees.
Desroches was named after a former French governor of Mauritius, and like many of Seychelles’ islands, was once a prosperous coconut plantation.
The island and its exclusive Desroches Island Resort are serviced by air from Mahé in a flight-time of approximately 50 minutes and offer spectacular opportunities for deep sea fishing, fly-fishing and diving.
