St Joseph Atoll is part of the Amirante Islands group, in the Outer Islands coral archipelago of the Seychelles islands, in the Indian Ocean. St Joseph Island lies 250 km WSW of the capital Victoria on Mahé Island. The main Saint Joseph island is a crescent shaped, flat coral sand cay, 2.2 kilometres long and averages 400 m wide. The maximum width of the fringing reefs of the atoll is 6.6 km. The inner lagoon (depth to 6.4 m) drains on the western side over a sill, leaving the reef entirely exposed. The atoll has 13 sandy islets covered by coconut trees, and shifting sand bars surround the lagoon.

In 1960, the island became the property of a Seychellois family, who built the coconut plantation. The atoll is uninhabited, with several ruined buildings on the cultivated western end. To the west 1.2 km distant is D’Arros Island. Both islands are privately owned, and were once a thriving coconut plantation that employed workers, now gone, and also fishermen. They are considered a single ecological unit. The private owners have done much to preserve habitats.

The lagoon is home to sting rays and turtles. Giant blue mud crabs arise from the depths onto the surrounding flats at high tide. Bone fish, grouper, lobster, and coral fish abound amidst the sea grass, and oysters grow on the coral walls. Bird life includes a large colony of frigate birds, and blue heron, crested terns, wimbrels and plovers. The emphasis today is on conservation and marine research. The coral reefs have recovered well since the devastating coral bleaching event of 1998, when approximately 70 percent of the corals in the Seychelles died.
