Welcome to Frégate
Fairy-tale Frégate is a private island where guests' supreme comfort and enjoyment is as catered to as the environment and wildlife. The result of the latter is a sky full of tropical birds, an endemic forest crawling with a few thousand giant tortoises, and a pristine shoreline providing successful nesting grounds for two species of endangered sea turtles. There are well-demarcated wilderness trails to explore alone or with the island's resident conservationist, and no less than seven white-sand beaches that will have you grinning ear to ear (Anse Maquereau and Anse Victorin are regularly voted among the world's best). Fishing, diving and snorkelling are also possibilities off its shores. Unsurprisingly, this exclusive place has become a hideaway for celebs and millionaires who find serenity in the Fregate Island Private resort. But for those with a biological education, it's an incredibly rewarding place to volunteer in its wide-ranging conservation program.
