Characteristics

Description

Au bord de la barrière de corail, au S de l'atoll de Male S, lîle est longue de 350m et large de 75 m avec une orientation NS.
Deux îles désertes sont accessibles à pied, en planche à voile ou en catamaran:

  • l'île du Soleil Levant.
L'île Robinson à l'état pur. Une île où l'on se met très vite au rythme tropical. Le plus dur sera de quitter ce petit paradis, un jour qu'on souhaite le plus lointain possible.
