Astove Atoll

Astove island is breathtakingly beautiful. It is a world filled with colour, where the daily dramas of a pristine ocean ecosystem play out in front of your very eyes. Astove offers a rare opportunity to gaze into a world that has changed very little in the years that have passed. The Astove Wall is described as gazing down into an underwater Grand Canyon. It consists of the large flats and reef dropping a vertical 90 degrees, from ankle-deep water to water well over a kilometre deep. This unique feature makes it home to some of the best fishing and scuba diving in the world.

Fly Fishing at Astove Atoll

Astove Atoll is the best place if you want to catch a massive flats-caught giant trevally in the Indian Ocean as well as many other fish species. Its shallow lagoon, surrounded by sheer drop-offs, makes the experience unique. The fishing season on Astove traditionally runs from November to late April and is limited to a maximum of four anglers at any given time to keep conservation of the atoll top of mind.

This lagoon is a sanctuary for both juvenile and trophy-sized fish that feed on the shallow white sand flats. Aside from big GTs, Astove offers innumerable opportunities for bonefish, permit, bluefin trevally, triggerfish, barracuda, and milkfish. Offshore fishing starts just metres from the edge of the flats and allows anglers to test their skills against yellowfin tuna, dogtooth tuna, wahoo, and sailfish.

Uninhabited since 1969, Astove island makes for a wild fishing experience. Surrounding a central courtyard, the newly renovated Coral House has six charming and comfortable rooms. With en-suite bathrooms, the rooms offer relaxed accommodation in one of the most remote locations in the world. The key to the experience is how very little has been changed in the Coral House since it was first created. Allowing guests a sense of how the Veevers-Carter family, coconut farmers and once the only inhabitants of the atoll, would have enjoyed the house.
