Mayotte, France Cruise Port

Mayotte is a region of France, despite its archipelago being located off the African coast between northwestern Madagascar and northeastern Mozambique. It consists of a main island, Grande-Terre, a smaller island, Petite-Terre, and several inlets strewn around the two. The city of Mamoudzou, located on the large island, has been Mayotte’s capital since 1977 and has a population of over 12,000 divided into six satellite villages and three cantons. A ferry makes runs between the large and small island between the Mamoudzou and Pamandzi ports. The outskirts of Mamoudzou have many hiking trails, including the path up to Mont Choungui, which offers the most impressive view of the island. Surrounded by a tropical coral reef, it is enclosed by some of the world’s largest and deepest lagoons. These near-bottomless drops are a big draw to divers who enjoy the thrill of the plunge. In August and September, humpback whales with calves can also be spotted around the lagoons.


  • For one of the friendliest diving centers on the island, look no further than Nautilus Plongee. Whether you want to scuba dive or snorkel, prepared to be amazed by the plethora of marine life found in the depths.
  • Enjoy the jungle-like wilderness of Mayotte Decouverte where you can forge new paths through the many trees or enjoy the serene, cooling nature on established paths.
  • Experience the reserved, calming pebble shores of Prefect Beach. Come to take in the sun or to swim, dive, or snorkel in the clear, warm waters.
  • Traverse the unique tropical landscape of 210 Marches d’Acoua in Mamoudzou, including numerous, grand trails perfect for the hiker, survivalist and adventurer in us all.
