Alphonse Group of Atolls
The beautiful, pristine islands of Alphonse, St Francois and Bijoutier in the outer Seychelles offer some of the most picturesque and spectacular natural environments in the world. Collectively known as the Alphonse group of atolls, they are characterised by gorgeous sandy white beaches lining the edge of lush, dense tropical foliage – and packed full of an incredible array of native flora and fauna.
The Alphonse group of atolls offer the tranquility and natural elegance of the most perfect tropical islands – a peaceful environment of raw natural beauty where the noise and cares of the modern world seem very far away. A wonderful, protective sanctuary for birds, animals and marine life, the islands also offer an amazing temporary sanctuary for those few lucky humans who get to set foot on these remote atolls.
A duty to protect the spectacular wonders of the natural world is at the very heart of activities on the Alphonse group of atolls. Dedicated conservationists work hard to preserve the unique wildlife of the islands, and during your visit you will get the chance to learn more about the fascinating sea turtles, giant tortoises and forest species which benefit from ongoing monitoring, research and rehabilitation programmes.
The Alphonse group of atolls offer an authentic, natural island experience – but that doesn’t mean you have to compromise on comfort, quality or style when it comes to your accommodation. A collection of cosy bungalows and exclusive villas offer scenic views, quiet seclusion and easy access to some of the most amazing beaches of the Seychelles. The main island of Alphonse also provides excellent facilities including a swimming pool, tennis court and bar.
One of the highlights of any trip to the Alphonse group of atolls is the chance to experience some incredible food. A diverse cuisine, incorporating a wealth of freshly caught fish and locally grown plants, is cooked up every day here – delivering local Creole flavours intertwined with the distinctive influences of French culinary flair. Resident chefs work their wonders with the garden and forest harvests from the atolls, along with the latest catch, to create incredible dishes that will exceed your wildest expectations.
