Indian Ocean Islands

The islands in the Indian Ocean are as diverse as the explorers, spice merchants and local islanders who have shaped them.  Whether you’re looking for giant coconuts or giant tortoises; lush rainforests, cool highlands or pristine coral reefs; a taste of local cuisine and curious wildlife, there’s an island to suit every taste and budget.

Best for barefoot luxury and diving is probably The Seychelles.  If it’s culture you’re looking for, then Mauritius is a great starting point. And for unspoilt nature and wildlife, then definitely Madagascar and Reunion are for you.
