Cruises from Scattered Islands
The Scattered Islands (Îles Éparses) are a dispersed group of islands around the coast of Madagascar. They are part of the French Southern and Antarctic Lands, groups of small islands spread east of Africa and in the southern Indian Ocean. The Scattered Islands consist of four small coral islands, an atoll, and a reef. They include Europa Island and Juan de Nova Island that lie in the Mozambique Channel west of Madagascar, and the Gloriosa Islands that lie 200 km off the NW of Madagascar.
They have no permanent population, rather automated meteorological stations to warn of cyclones, and airstrips.
