Welcome to the land of Jurassic mountain cliffs enshrouded in mist, smooth granite boulders festooned with fresh young leaves, and stretches of powdery sands vanishing into a lagoon as clear as liquid crystal. Silhouette Island, a marine national park, is regarded by conservationists as one of the most important biodiversity sanctuaries of the Indian Ocean. The Island was once home of the notorious pirate Jean Hodoul, who captured seven English vessels with their cargo of goods and treasures. Legend has it that the treasure still lies undiscovered somewhere in Silhouette Island, a captivating thought indeed for the adventurous soul!
