There are also several private islands such as Denis Island or Sainte Anne Resort.

Set between Madagascar & Mauritius, Reunion island is a French overseas territory of rugged beauty, in the Indian Ocean. There are lush, ancient forests, the highest mountain in the Indian Ocean, sweeping golden beaches and one of the world’s most active volcanoes. This is a haven for hikers, adventure seekers and natural history enthusiasts. Self drive holidays are popular here as the roads are very scenic and you can stay in boutique guest houses sampling traditional hospitality.
Rodrigues is a laid back island connected to Mauritius, home to a creole culture, friendly people, fabulous food and amazing diving. There are no five star luxury hotels here. Instead, this is the perfect place for the adventure traveller with miles of coastal paths and walking trails. These will lead you to sheltered, beautiful coves and bays. Enjoy boat trips out to the reefs and smaller islands for fabulous snorkelling, diving and birdlife.
Madagascar, officially part of Africa, sits to the west of the Indian Ocean and home to diverse wildlife and landscapes offering some of the most special beach destinations in the region.
Marine life here is stunning with waters full of colourful fish and coral reefs. You will find sheltered bays and islands surrounded by lush, green hills and forests full of wildlife. July – September here you can enjoy whale watching and there are various other off shore islands in the area (some uninhabited) which can be explored by boat.
To the north west is the Nosy Be Archipelago, probably the most visited of the beach areas of Madagascar. Sandy beaches, coral coves, reefs, tiny islands mingle with a variety of hotels, dive centres and local villages. Our pick of the best luxury hotels is Constance Tsarabanjina.
