Pristine and Pure

The Alphonse group of atolls is considered one of the most pristine, untouched Edens of the world, making it a nature lover’s paradise. The magnificent island threesome comprising of Alphonse, St Francois and Bijoutier lies in the very heart of the Indian Ocean as part of the Seychelles outer islands.

Beautiful white beaches line the edges of the dense natural forest, interspersed with the remnants of old commercial coconut groves. Here you will find ancient ambling tortoises, scurrying crabs and an interesting array of bird species. Escape to the exquisite simplicity of a tropical island paradise, leaving behind the impositions of everyday life. Experience the raw beauty of an untouched natural sanctuary and one of the prime protected fisheries in the far reaches of the Indian Ocean.

Just a flight away

One of the attractions to Europeans, Africans and especially Middle Easterners is that the Seychelles is located in a similar time zone to these areas. It is only four and a half hours by plane from Dubai, Abu Dabi, and Doha which all serve as a connecting hub for regular international flights from Europe, the United States, Africa and Asia. Additionally direct flights to the Seychelles are available from Paris, Bombay, Nairobi, Antananarivo, Mauritius, Johannesburg, Addis Ababa, Reunion, Colombo, Dar-Es-Salaam and Frankfurt.

Alphonse Island is a 60-minute flight from the Seychelles capital of Mahé. There is a weekly scheduled flight departing from Mahé every Saturday at 11:00, with the return flight departing from Alphonse Island at 12:30. Additional flights might be added on over periods of high demand, or alternatively Alphonse Island is also accessible through private charter flights. Guests are required to fly into Mahé at least 4 hours before the flight is scheduled to depart. Our reservations team will assist you with your return flight reservations between Mahé and Alphonse at the time of you making your booking with us.
