Comoros Travel Insurance
Situated 290 km off the East African coast in the Indian Ocean, Comoros is a sovereign island country and is part of a volcanic archipelago. It is composed of three islands; Nzwani (Anjouan), Mwali (Mohéli), and Ngazidja (Grande Comore). Mayotte (Maoré) is a fourth island in the Comorian archipelago, but it remains under the control of France. The scenic geography and abundance of fragrant flora has led to this archipelago being called the ‘perfumed islands’. The French, Malagasy, Arabic, and African influences are noticeable here. Comoros was once an important halt in the sea trade from East Africa to India and Japan.
The capital of Comoros is Moroni. Comorian, French, and Arabic are the official languages. Adventure tourists can look forward to having a great time here. The capital city of Moroni (meaning ‘in the heart of the fire’) is near an active volcano, Mount Karthala. A hiker can reach the crater and spend the night at the top. The Old Friday Mosque is worth visiting not only for its religious significance but also for the view it provides of the Moroni harbor which is made up of dark volcanic rock. Comoros beaches are popular for their white sandy stretches and crystal clear waters. The most visited beaches are on the Mohéli Island. For a memorable diving experience, head to Galawa Beach or Mayotte island (popular for its coral reef). If you are on Mohéli Island, do not miss the sulfurous crater lake of Dziani Boundouni. The best of Comoros’ wild and marine life can be also observed on Mohéli. While Indian citizens need to obtain tourist visas for Comoros, visas can be obtained on arrival. Make sure you contact Comoros Consulate for more information.
