About Egmont Islands

Egmont Islands were discovered in the 17th century. The largest island is called Île Sud-Est (Eastern Egmont) , and a small village was established there - soon after their discovery. The size of those tiny islands is only 4 km2, if you include the lagoon, the total size grows to 29 km2. The Egmont Islands are quite popular anchoring spot for yachtsmen who are sailing around Chagos Archipelago. It is difficult for any sailor just to pass and not to stop on the Egmont Islands’s white sand beaches as it is difficult to miss the fascinating coral reefs and coconut palms growing almost everywhere on the islands.
