About Alphonse Island Lodge

At Alphonse Island you can escape to the exquisite simplicity of this tropical island, where it is summer everyday. Picture white sandy beaches, crystal clear balmy seas and coconut groves, interspersed with dense natural forest. At Alphonse you will find ancient ambling tortoises, scurrying crabs and an interesting array of bird species. Experience the raw beauty of an untouched natural sanctuary and one of the prime protected fisheries in the far reaches of the Indian Ocean. There is simply no better place to try fly-fishing, as one of the most famed saltwater fly fishing destinations in the Indian Ocean and one of the most prolific Bonefish fisheries in the world. It is undoubtedly a fly angler's paradise.

Alphonse Island’s remote geographical location lends itself to an atmosphere of undisturbed solitude; allowing you to feel like you are the only person on a deserted island, yet offering all the amenities and facilities that will make your stay extremely comfortable and enjoyable.
