Attractions at Desroches

Get on your bike

Just three miles long and less than a mile wide, it’s easy to explore the island on foot. But why do that when you can get some exercise at the same time, discovering this paradise on two wheels instead? Bicycle hire is complimentary for all Desroches guests, giving you a free pass to discover every inch of immaculate beach and wild jungle on offer.

Land down under

The Desroches island is protected by a vast reef, so it’s no surprise its waters provide a marine-rich underwater safari beneath the waves. There are more than 14 dives sites to be explored, and the hotel even offers guided snorkelling trips. If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, why not visit some of the best submerged caves and corals with on-site professionals and train to get PADI qualified? Take it to the next level with deep-sea diving at the world-class Desroches ‘drop-off’.
