Explorer Season | May - Sep

Our Explorer Season is geared towards introducing you to the unsung beauty of Alphonse Island during the months of May to September. 

This time of year offers sun-drenched days which are followed by balmy evenings. The inviting tropical waters lures one in and allows you to enjoy the fascinating marine life on display. Take the time to experience the micro life found on the reefs, to track nesting turtles and to see tiny hatchlings making their way hastily to the ocean.

The slower island pace and luxurious accommodation, along with a team that will exceed your expectations, whatever they might be, contributes to complete relaxation.

Explore this tranquil oasis by bicycle, with the wind gently ruffling your hair, and spend worthwhile hours contributing to conserving this pristine paradise.

We know a picture is worth a thousand words, and thus have created five short videos to introduce you to our favourite features of this special atoll during this extraordinary period. 

Take a few minutes to explore the island, ocean, flats, lodge and conservation initiatives of Alphonse and learn more about the fascinating experiences the Explorer Season has to offer.

*Please note that all activities are weather dependant.

*Please note that the footage used in the conservation video could be from Astove or Cosmoledo as we are involved in the Outer Islands.

Offering a range of well-appointed and stylish Beach Bungalows, Beach Suites and Beach Villas to accommodate everyone from solo travellers to families, Alphonse Island will welcome you in tropical luxury and splendour. 


Alphonse Island is a haven for water enthusiasts. Kayak amongst turtles, test your mettle out in the blue against Yellowfin Tuna and Sailfish, and end off balmy days with a leisurely sunset cruise.


Alphonse is known for its expansive flats, teeming with various marine and birdlife including species found deep in the sea grass meadows, under rocks and squeezed into crevices in the reef platform. 


With a passion that is driven by preserving this unspoiled atoll, we take our stewardship of this haven serious and like nothing more than to introduce our guests to the ways that they can make a difference.
