Assomption is one of the more remote islands in the Aldabra Group of the Seychelles in the Indian Ocean. This crescent-shaped island lies to the south of the Aldabra Atoll and 600 miles southwest of Mahe. It is rough and arid, shaded only by shrubs and palm trees but is redeemed by a spectacular reef with huge coral heads and a white ocean floor. Early in the 20th century the island was ruthlessly plundered for its vast deposits of guano. Happily, peace has returned to the island and rare birds and green turtles are once again in abundance.
