Alphonse Island Seychelles

The Alphonse group of atolls is considered one of the most pristine, untouched ‘Edens’ of the world, but is also is famous for Fly/bone fishing

Located around 403 km south-west of the main island, Mahé.

The magnificent island threesome comprising of Alphonse, St Francois and Bijoutier lies in the very heart of the Seychelles outer islands.

Reached by a 1-hour flight which goes twice a week on Saturdays and Wednesdays you really are going to ‘Paradise’

22 Beach Bungalows, 5 Beach Suites, and 2 Beach Villas the only thing you have to do is decide which you will call home for your stay here. The resort is located in the east of the island, and its bungalows and suites can be found right on the fine, sandy beach.

The central dining and bar area allow guests to socialize alongside the sparkling pool and shoreline, with ever changing cuisine inspired by the island atmosphere and complemented by a comprehensive wine list. Ice-cold beers or a refreshing cocktail can also be enjoyed in the Beach Bar on the Northern point of the island, or Barnacles Bar at the activity centre.

For relaxing try the main pool or take a visit to the Spa and when you feel more active there is a selection of water sports including scuba diving with PADI, bubble maker, discover scuba, open water, advanced and speciality scuba courses.

The striking, triangular shape of Alphonse Island is one of the most beautiful spots amongst the Seychelles' coral 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.

Alphonse Island is a refuge for people looking for an authentic and unspoilt island experience.

Where it is Always Summer - Situated only 7º south of the equator and outside of the cyclone belt, the Island is blessed with one of the world’s healthiest climates and gorgeous, consistent weather. Alphonse offers guests year-round summer days with temperatures seldom dropping below 22°C (72°F).

For a change of scenery nip over to Bijoutier and Saint François, you will take the boat from Alphonse. Bijoutier, with its huge variety of fauna, it is so small can be exhausted in just 10 minutes on-foot. Saint François is shaped like a V, is flat, and is covered in coconut palm trees. There is a small but deep channel that separates the island from its neighbour Alphonse. This is another great spot to go fly fishing and deep-sea fishing.

Fly/bone & Big Game Fishing

The atolls of Alphonse and St.Francois are the ultimate fly/bone fishing locations in the Seychelles. Here you will enjoy the challenge of catching superb bone fish, five trevally species, triggerfish plus the enigmatic milkfish with weights up to 40lb that takes some landing.

The Alphonse fishing season runs from October through to May. The island takes a maximum of 12 fishing guests along with non-fishing partners and children. This means that at any one time there should be a good mix of none fishing to fishing guests.

Two anglers are allocated per skiff, accompanied by a fully experienced salt-water guide. Anglers fishing on St.Francois are transferred by a smart mothership. Being a very tide dependent location, the species caught will vary accordingly.
