Cruises from Assumption Island
Assumption Island is a small island in the Indian Ocean north of Madagascar and is part of the country of the Seychelles. It is located about 30km southeast of the Aldabra Atoll and is part of the Aldabra Group. It is a single coral island 11 km² in area and has a small settlement on the sheltered western side, surrounded by Casuarina trees. An abandoned coconut palm plantation is just south of it.
There is a concrete runway that runs from between the two sand dunes on the southeast to the settlement. The western shore features an almost uninterrupted sandy beach of 5kms. Two large sand dunes are prominent on the southeastern coast of the island, one of them 32 m high.
