Green Island

Island in Bourail

    Green Island is a nature reserve just a few minutes by boat from La Roche Percée and Nessadiou. Much of the island is out of bounds to visitors, as it is home to an important dry forest with many species of seabirds. The seabed and the underwater fauna in the area contribute to its popularity, making it a unique and precious jewel. Whether you prefer diving or sailing, you’ll have a chance to see some of the many species protected by the island’s marine reserve status, like green turtles and dugongs. Green Island is also symbolic to the locals and considered a taboo place by the region’s sea clans.
    A number of the region's service providers offer water-based and air-based activities that allow visitors to discover or rediscover the island’s wild beauty and the surrounding lagoon’s many shades of blue.
