Comoros travel guide

4.1
Nature & Parks · Sacred & Religious Sites · Dolphin & Whale Watching
Exotic Comoros offers a different take on the archetypal paradise island. The remote collection of varied landmasses endured a turbulent history, with nearly 20 coups since its independence in 1975. The political situation has calmed in recent years, allowing tourism in Comoros to develop thanks to a good offering of white-sand beaches, volcanic peaks, and underwater worlds rich in wildlife. Devoutly Muslim, the locals frown upon the consumption of alcohol and bare skin--few foreign tourists are bothered by this, as most come for the off-the-beaten track adventuring rather than beach-bar relaxation.
