Sometimes it can be tough to unwind knowing that you might be having a negative impact on the environment. Stay green on your next vacation away from your superyacht by heading to these eco-friendly resorts in some of the world’s most beautiful coastal locations.
1. Alphonse Island
Located 400km south of the largest Seychelles island Mahe, Alphonse is a tiny island teeming with animal and plant life.
A bucket list destination for fly fishermen from all over the world, it operates a strict ‘catch and release’ policy to help protect the natural fish species while all marine life caught for consumption on the island is done strictly through sustainable line fishing. Half the island – which is just 4km in circumference – has also been left untouched to encourage the indigenous bird colonies, giant tortoise families and tropical vegetation to thrive.
Visitors can enjoy this paradise with a cycling tour led by a member of the Island Development Company, a quasi-government organisation set up to help preserve the natural ecology of the Seychelles, which has a permanent base on Alphonse.
