Why we recommend Desroches Island Resort

"One of the outer coralline islands of the Seychelles, Desroches Island, the main island of the Amirante Bank, offers space to explore the unique beauty synonymous with the Seychelles. Each accommodation is styled perfectly, and there’s a huge range of activities on offer. One of our favourites is being able to explore the rich marine life, in particular a trip out to St Joseph’s Atoll where you can spot stingrays in the azure waters.”
