Made more enchanting for those of us whom make the trip from the U.S. this island is a long way away. It is worth the hours on the plane. Greeted by the staff at the runway that begins and ends at the waters edge is the beginning of a welcoming and beautiful island resort. They cannot do this in the Caribbean. The accommodations and food are excellent, the staff is very friendly and is there to accommodate anything you need. Add to all this diving, fishing ( both blue water and flats), bicycling the island, and a beautiful Indian Ocean, what more can you ask for. The resort is small and intimate and the accommodations private. Patrick runs a great resort and Brian arranges the Castaways fishing and diving center. My wife loves scuba and was blown away by the trips she and Lisa, a dive instructor, shared. We both had uneventful, but adrenaline rushing, encounters with sharks, both fishing and diving. I highly recommend Desroches, you can be as relaxed or active as you want.
