What to do in the Comoros if we happen to be nearby and have the financial means to do so. A few photos from there! They call them by gentle names – fragrant islands. The delicate Arab soul calls them “islands of the moon” because of their volcanic origins. Black rocks, white sands and countless shades of blue. Mayotte Lagoon is the third largest in the world (after that of the Great Barrier Reef and New Caledonia).
But it still holds two other records – the deepest and only in the world with a double barrier reef. The coral reef is 195 km long. Unknown, unpopular and far from the mass tourist march, Comoros is pristine, untouched and authentic. In a word – tropical charm outside the beaten path. Fresh and extremely tasty food – such as the warm Indian Ocean can give.
Dense jungle, colorful flora and steep, almost alpine peaks. Many baobabs on the beaches and in the interior of the islands. Intoxicating aromas of ylang-ylang and vanilla! Flying foxes – bats as big as magpies that fly during the day! Curious, but also timid lemurs. Yes, Madagascar is not the only place where they can be seen. Exquisite and glamorous reef with the highest concentration of sea turtles in the world.
What to do in the Comoro islands
Many times we “encountered” the floating good-natured people! Proverbially kind and friendly people, crime rate – zero! . As we mentioned at the beginning of the travelogue, the reason for the existence of the Comoros is the active volcanic activity, which you can see now. The relief of the islands is mountainous, which is a natural reason for the population to live along the coast.
There is an active volcano with a height of 2560 m – Kargala on the island of Nhadija. As the warm waters of the Indian Ocean wash the shores of the Comoros, they are the reason for coral reefs. While we were there, nature decided to stir up the idyll and send an angry hurricane named Kenneth. It means “generous”.
One day and one night he generously went crazy, storks, whistled, raged, whistled, arbitrarily and outraged, crashed waves into the black rocks and made us witness a spectacular show! We also saw one of the lakes in the volcanic craters around the islands. I would also like to clarify that there is practically one tourist hotel on the Grand Comoros. There is an interesting attraction on the big island dinner on the volcanic rocks.
Large crabs (lobsters) caught a few hours ago are served daily. The food is always fresh, simply because there are no tourists. Catch as many seafood as needed! A supplement to the collection of experiences and memories of different-minded people is definitely needed!
