Mayotte is an island situated in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Southeast Africa. Renowned for its glorious displays of fauna and flora, you can expect to see species such as lemurs, sea turtles and humpback whales. Why not take a boat trip to participate in some deep sea diving or take a stroll around Saziley National Park for sweeping views of the coastline? Rouaka Waterfalls will stun you with their natural beauty, whilst Musicale Beach proves a perfect location for watching the infamous island sunsets. Whilst in Mayotte, try some seafood specialties such as freshly caught crab or calamari, paired perfectly with a spiced rum cocktail. The shops, restaurants and businesses are clustered in Mamoudzou, which forms the ‘urban’ center of the island.
