The mere mention of Africa and the Indian Ocean is enough to inspire dreams of sunshine and adventure. South Africa, Tanzania, Madagascar, Réunion, the Seychelles, the Maldives… the sense of exotic escape is everywhere. And along with that sense comes idyllic, heavenly landscapes, from the savannah, where the elephant reigns supreme, to fine, sandy, palm-lined beaches, coral reefs and multicoloured underwater worlds.
To visit the Scattered Islands of the Indian Ocean is to experience a complete change of scenery. Like confetti strewn about the ocean, these French territories remain some of the most unspoiled destinations on the planet.
