It is known to be a relatively exclusive island and with its fine sandy beaches, palm trees adorning the landscape, a near perfect climate and crystal clear waters, it is the perfect place in which to enjoy a relaxing break.

Desroches was named by Chevalier de Roslan who was the commander of the ship L’Heure du Berger, after the Chevalier des Roches, the Governor of Mauritius and Réunion from 1767 to 1772. However, the British had originally named it Wood Island because of its dense tree landscape.
