The Alphonse Atoll group, situated in the Seychelles outer islands, is renowned for its unspoiled beauty and is a nature enthusiast’s dream destination. Comprising of Alphonse, St. François, and Bijoutier, these islands boast stunning white sandy beaches bordering lush natural forests and the remains of old commercial coconut plantations. This truly is an unspoiled tropical paradise and anglers get to fish and explore one of the most protected fisheries in the remote regions of the Indian Ocean.

 

Accommodation on Alphonse comprises 22 Beach Bungalows, five 1-bedroom Beach Villas and two spacious 4-bedroom Beach Retreats.  This is an island paradise and you are provided with accommodation to match.

Breath-taking ocean views from the privacy of your veranda with the pristine white beaches only meters away. Travelling around the island and between your accommodation to the main lodge area by bicycle is an added attraction.
