"The best island of its size in the world" - Marco Polo

The Country
This fascinating island in the Indian Ocean is only 270 miles long and 140 miles across at its widest point, incorporating a variety of terrain and climate zones and located 550 miles North of the equator, off the southern tip of India. Part of the charm of touring around the island is the unhurried life-style of the people and the sights and sounds of the unexpected. It will make an unforgettable holiday experience on one of the most scenic islands in the world.

In this tropical island, the temperatures and humidity are high remaining fairly constant throughout.

Lowlands 27oC (77oF) and Hill Country 16oC (62oF), although the humidity is greatest from April to October.

An escape from the English winter here is an attractive proposition.
