Cruises from Desroches
Desroches is the main island of the Amirante Islands, part of the Outer Islands of the Seychelles. The island is low and is covered with coconut palms and tall hardwood trees. Desroches was named by Chevalier de Roslan, commander of the ship "L'Heure du Berger," after the Chevalier des Roches, the Governor of Mauritius and Réunion from 1767 to 1772. Along its circumference of 15 km is a beach of fine sand.
Conservation on the island is managed by the Island Conservation Society. The villas are discretely positioned behind natural foliage so that visitors are not aware of them when walking along the beaches.
