The Atoll

Alphonse Atoll, a nature lover’s paradise, is one of the world’s most pristine, untouched Edens. The islands in the atoll enjoys an exquisite climate and miles of unblemished shorelines, lagoons and sea flats.

Alphonse is one of three in the group, and sits aside St François and Bijoutier. All enjoy a perfect location in the Seychelles outer islands, in the very heart of the Indian Ocean. Although the accommodation is on Alphonse Island, the fishing is done around St. Francois Island.

What truly distinguishes Alphonse Island as one of the most outstanding fishing destinations in the world is the combination of comfortable hotel accommodation alongside the opportunity to fish 3 different islands right on your doorstep.

The Fishing

Alphonse Atoll is one of the famed saltwater fly fishing destinations of the Indian Ocean. Its ten thousand acres of white sand flats provide easy wading and world class fishing.

The atolls are home to huge populations of bonefish, three different types of triggerfish, barracuda, snapper, grouper, permit, parrotfish and eight species of trevally, including the giant trevally. The most challenging fish to catch, though, is the fabled milkfish, a turbo-charged algae-eater growing to 40lbs.

This diversity gives anglers the opportunity to target a myriad of different species during their stay.

The Facilities

Alphonse Island boasts a single exclusive resort made up of Beach Bungalows and Villas. Built alongside the water’s edge, each accommodation enjoys spectacular ocean views.

A central dining and bar area lets you socialise alongside the sparkling pool and shoreline, with cuisine offering the very best of traditional Creole creations. Fresh produce farmed on the island and freshly caught fish are always on the menu, but diversity is key, including Asian inspired dishes and sensational sashimi, complemented by a wine list of distinctive variety.
