Coco Island, La Digue Island

4.6
Swim amidst sea turtles and hundreds of coral reef fish at Coco Island, a group of small islands and a popular snorkeling spot close to La Digue. A marine park since 1996, these islands feature some spectacular limestone rock formations and clear turquoise-blue waters with high visibility. White stretches of sand in small scenic coves provide excellent swimming opportunities, while abundant vegetation creates natural shade. Hotels arrange day trips to the island; bring your own water and, if possible, your own equipment. Rental gear is expensive, worn out, and not very hygienic, and there are no amenities on the island. Make Coco Island a centerpiece of your La Digue Island vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our La Digue Island visit planner.
