First noted in 1562, the islands of Alphonse, St. François and Bijoutier have come a long way from their humble beginnings. The history of these islands tell of the change from the production of maize, pineapples, coconuts and sweet potato to being a safe haven for various endemic species. Once in the ownership of merchants, Mauritian families and the British Government, Alphonse Island is now home to a stylish holiday resort focused on conservation.
Due to its remote location, the islands of the Alphonse Group plays host to a variety of endemic vegetation, animal life and exquisite marine life that call the surrounding azure waters their home. The sandy beaches and coconut forests make it a quiet retreat as well as breeding ground for a host of migratory seabirds and turtles. With over 130 bird species recorded, guests can expect glimpses of Red-footed boobies and frigatebirds. Alphonse island is also home to a small reintroduced population of Aldabra giant tortoises.
