Mayotte Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 38%, Mayotte is the sole remaining French-controlled territory in the Comoros Island group. A trip to this solitary little island, that actively voted several years back to stay under the French banner, offers that unique blend of French culture and African vibe that PlanetHoppers! through the western part of the continent will recognize as part of everyday life. However, the difference here is that the locals seem to eagerly embrace their French roots, unlike many other places in the region. But let's be honest, no one comes here for the politics. What they do come for is the chance to dive into the warm waters of the Indian Ocean and explore the Grande-Terra Coral Reefs. This is one of the world's most fragile reef systems, but also one that is absolutely essential to the island's future - both from an ecological and tourism point of view. In contrast, you can also hike to the highest point on the island - Mount Benara's Grande Terre - where you can gain unequaled views of this little slice of paradise. Mayotte beckons to you. Will you say oui, je vais venir bientôt?
