Another popular option is to board a boat and spend the day out on the water deep sea fishing. Denis Island is famous for the excellent chances of hooking a Big One. Sword fishes, sharks and groupers are frequently caught in these waters.
The coral island was named after the Frenchman Denis de Trobriand who alighted on the shore in 1773. Legend has it that hidden somewhere on the island is a bottle containing the historical proof Denis Island was claimed in the name of the French king.
However, fate has so far concealed the alleged historical treasure, the discovery yet to be made. Keep your eyes peeled while exploring every niche of the island!
Fortunately, history left some more manifest fingerprints: The island’s lighthouse dates back to 1908. Denis also houses the Seychelles’ only ecumenical chapel. Both are well worth a visit.
Set amidst the tropical nature, the classy Taj Denis Island Resort lies at the coral island’s northern tip. A small total of 25 comfortable cottages feature high quality accommodation in line with the Seychelles’ trademark of defining, luxurious ambience.
The cottages are a mere child’s stone throw from the picture-perfect beach. Overlooking the Indian Ocean, the Resort’s acclaimed restaurant creates its delectable sensations featuring a stunning local cuisine. The bar is the perfect backdrop to cool down with a drink and hang back in pleasant reverie.
A boutique shop sells small necessities and fabulous souvenirs; a lounge creates an ambience perfect for a game of cards or a few quite hours with a good book. Those appreciating a ‘deeper insight’ will be in good hands at the high standard diving centre.
Only a small distance from Denis, the Seychelles’ plateau drops sharply to the deep blue depths of the Indian Ocean. The spectacular diving sites on the drop enjoy a world wide reputation for their intact coral and the big fish which are attracted to the area in large numbers.
