Visit the Island of Alphonse, the largest in this group of atolls, which lies 250 miles southwest of Mahé. Beautiful white beaches line the edges of the dense natural forest, interspersed with the remnants of old commercial coconut groves where you will find ancient ambling tortoises, scurrying crabs and an interesting array of bird species.
