Holiday itinerary details

Here is a sneak preview of what you can expect from your dream holiday in the Outer Islands! This itinerary is simply here to inspire; you can choose what you would like to do and when and our travel team will tailor a proposal to your specifications.

Days 1-4

Days 1-4 - Overview

A scenic three hour flight from the main island, you will find the remote Astove Atoll.  This breathtaking marine environment has magnificent drop-offs, famous for Jacques Cousteau’s “The Silent World” which was filmed partly along its edges and attracting the world’s finest divers and aquatic photographers. The newly renovated six bedroomed Coral House only receives a handful of guests each week, thereby adding to the solitude and tranquility found here. Astove is surrounded with white sandy beaches which are also home to one of the largest populations of nesting turtles.

While away days kayaking amongst turtles, exploring the reefs, going on snorkelling safaris and generally learning more about the astounding ecosystem of this atoll.

  • Warm welcome by the Management Team
  • Home of the famous “Astove Wall”, comparable to an underwater Grand Canyon
  • Endless white sandy beaches
  • Max 12 guests per week 
Days 4-8

Days 4-8 - Overview

After your wonderful stay on Astove, it's time to take a one-hour boat transfer to the iconic Cosmoledo Atoll. Referred to as the Galapagos of the Indian Ocean, Cosmoledo is as wild and remote as you can get and features an untouched ecosystem that boasts vast sand flats, over 20 beautiful islands, islets and cays  and a truly wonderful lagoon. It is an exceptional atoll with just eight unique Eco Pods that blend seamlessly with the diverse landscape, ultimately defining barefoot luxury in a place that is frozen in time. A remote and private retreat boasting incredible birdlife, Cosmoledo Atoll can only be described as “one of Mother Nature’s’ finest creations”.  

Whilst the pace of life at Cosmoledo Atoll is slow, long, balmy days will be enhanced by exciting interactions with the amazing natural splendour of this atoll.
