Description

Alphonse’s tiny neighbouring island of Bijoutier occupies pride of place within the waters of a turquoise lagoon.

This circular 2-acre island, set like a gemstone as if to crown the beauty of the lagoon, is fringed with beach shrubs and coconut palms. A walk around the island will take all of 10 minutes.

Bijoutier, which has never been inhabited, boasts a variety of wildlife that includes colonies of frigate birds, turtles, giant blue mud-crabs as well as, now, a world renowned population of bone-fish.

Excursions to Bijoutier can be made from Alphonse.
