The Comoros is an archipelago consisting of four islands, characterised by picturesque sandy beaches, the largest of which is Ngazidja (‘Grande Comore’), which is home to the Union capital and seat of the government, Moroni. The islands are located in the Indian Ocean, in the Mozambique Channel, just 200 miles off the east African coast.
Comoros is known as Perfume Island due to massive production of Ylang Ylang, which is important for perfume making. It is also known for its production of Vanilla.
The main attraction of the Comoros is its stunning abundance of marine life.
Everything from enormous whales, large sharks, giant manta rays, sailfish, sunfish, and marlin. The deep water close to the islands, coral reefs, miles of sandy beaches, plus fresh water streams and shoreline springs provide multiple habitats for marine life. In October, huge shoals of exotic fish swim through the islands during their great migration, attracting deep sea divers from all over the world.
