One of the most remote inhabited islands in Seychelles, Astove Atoll features a rugged and dramatic landscape with limestone rock and sand dunes rising against the horizon. It’s an environment which has had very little human impact placed on it in recent decades.
Astove Coral House offers superb dining in either the indoor or outdoor dining area, and breakfast, lunch and dinner are included in your package. The menu usually comprises of an English breakfast in the morning, a buffet lunch or packed picnic lunch to enjoy elsewhere, and a buffet dinner served in the dining room. Cuisine is locally inspired by the Seychellois Creole-style with freshly caught fish being a key ingredient.
Sundowners are enjoyed most evenings at a beautiful spot on the beach, allowing everyone to gather and discuss the events of the day.
With the prolific marine life around these atolls, the fly fishing and diving one can experience around Astove Atoll is some of the best in the world! The birding enthusiasts should not despair though, as Astove also offers a variety of interesting bird life around the atoll.
Astove has seen very few SCUBA divers in the past decade. The marine life that is encountered is therefore quite inquisitive and likely to approach divers, as they haven’t learned to be wary. Astove is most famous for the “Astove Wall” - a very steep wall that drops vertically from 1-2 metres to more than 50 metres in a short distance - and those few people that have dived here regard it as one of the best dive sites in the world. Sightings range across the board from reef to pelagic fish, big predators and tiny macro life, and the wall is covered with a forest of gorgonian fans and colourful soft corals that extends down to great depths. The large marine turtle population means that you will see countless turtles, both Green and Hawksbill; they are absolutely guaranteed during your trip!
You will also have the most experienced fly fishing guides in Seychelles at your service, assisting you with everything from advice on your casting and the right flies, to ensuring that your experience is tailored to your specific requirements, strengths and weaknesses. Astove is famous as the home of the largest flat-caught Giant Trevallies in the world, and you are likely to tangle with a few of these monsters! The fly shop stocks a wide range of custom-tied flies, fly lines, AFC merchandise and other fly fishing paraphernalia.
