The Alphonse group of atolls Alphonse, St Francois and Bijoutier are considered to be one of the most pristine, untouched Edens of the world.
Alphonse Island features a single resort comprising of beach bungalows and villas built alongside the water’s edge, each with scenic ocean views.

This spectacular wilderness has ten thousand acres of hard white sand flats which provide easy wading and world class sight-fishing. The Alphonse group is one of the most famed saltwater fly fishing destinations in the Indian Ocean and is one of the most prolific Bonefish fisheries in the world. An incredible 60 species can be targeted here.
This diversity gives anglers the opportunity to target a myriad of different species during their stay. The St. Francois fishery caters for just 12 anglers at a time to maintain exclusivity and sustainability.
