Only a short distance from Mahés west coast near Port Glaud lays the jewel Therese Island with one of the most beautiful tropical beaches we have ever seen. The tiny uninhabited island is about 1,6 km long and 160 m high with an abundance of coconut palm trees and lush tropical vegetation. Getting there isn´t really easy and so we ourselves have only been there once yet. But staying all alone on a tropical island is an experience to be had. Shady trees are available.
