Adabra Atoll has always been tucked away from human intervention – so it’s no wonder that more than 150,000 tortoises find refuge on the sandy shores of one of the largest coral atolls in the world. Besides the island manager and his staff, there are no other permanent residents on the islands. The Atoll is hard to reach – most visitors come from passing cruise ships. But the reward for finally reaching Aldabra Atoll is great. The four coral islands that make up the atoll are known for their spectacular flora and fauna. There are manta rays, tiger sharks and many species of birds.
