Overview of the Alphonse Group

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

Alphonse Island is one of three in the group and sits aside St. François and Bijoutier Islands. 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 majority of the fly fishing is done around St. François Atoll.

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

Fly Fishing The Alphonse Group

The Alphonse Group is one of the most famed saltwater fly fishing destinations in 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, Indo-Pacific 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.
