Heart of France, Soul of Africa

Sitting off the east coast of Africa between Madagascar and Mozambique, the capital of Mamoudzou is located on Grande-Terre (or Mahoré), the main island of Mayotte’s two islands and surrounding inlets. Originally a sultanate, it is now an overseas department of France and a vibrant crossroads of African, Asian, Indian, European, and Malagasy influences.

Characterized by a volcanic mountain range that runs the length of the island, Mayotte is surrounded by a tropical coral reef, a double barrier that cradles one of the largest, deepest, most beautiful lagoons in the world. A natural sanctuary for an exceptional biodiversity of marine life, the Mayotte lagoon is a national marine park and popular diving destination.

Explore the many hiking trails, including a trek up the perfect cone of Mont Choungui for a truly impressive view of the island, discovering a charming lemur or two along the way. Browse the colorful stalls of the Mamoudzou market for clothing and crafts, and sample papaya, mangoes, and passion fruit. If you think there’s a hint of Chanel N°5 in the air, you might be right. Mayotte is made even more enchanting thanks to the intoxicating aroma of ylang-ylang plantations on the island.
