Chauve Souris

Island Group :   Inner Islands Group   
Area :   0.007 sq.km   

Description

Chauve Souris is a private island only a few hundred metres from the dream beach of Côte d’Or at Anse Volbert on Praslin, which at low tide is merely a walk away.

Leased from the government by a Count Spani in the 1960's, this granite outcrop takes its name from that of the flying fox, but was also once known as Jeanette Island.

As may be expected for such a small island dominated by granite boulders, flora on Chauve Souris consists mainly of exotic decorative shrubs and bushes. Fauna is limited to the likes of skinks, geckoes and limited birdlife that chiefly use the island as a roost.

The Chauve Souris Club is the ideal place for an intimate and secluded vacation, with five luxury rooms suspended between sea and sky amid granite rocks and lush tropical vegetation.
