Welcome to Alphonse Island

Alphonse is a small, thickly vegetated island that's surrounded by a vast lagoon and healthy reef gardens. From the air, it looks like a giant shark's tooth. It does have some great beaches, although they're not the main drawcard.

Just 5km south from Alphonse is Bijoutier, a tiny islet surrounded by glassy waters, with splendid snorkelling. Further south lies St François, whose sensational submerged sandbanks have achieved cult status among bonefishing enthusiasts.
