Silversea Expedition Cruises To Expedition Cargados Bank

578559898

Also referred to as Saint Brandon, the Cargados Bank in Mauritius is an archipelago of sand banks, coral reefs and small islands that is worth a long visit to fully explore the atolls and turquoise lagoons. Roughly 40 islands pepper the Bank with a total land mass of 1.3 square kilometres. In contrast, the massive coral reef covers approximately 190 square kilometres underwater. About 40 people in total live on the entire set of islands, primarily on Île Raphael. View more

A few of the islands support coconut palms, bushes and grasses and are rich with flora and fauna, and the granulated coral sands are known for their unique beauty. In the distant past, the Cargados Bank was one large volcano, likely formed by tectonic plates dragging over the Reunion hotspot. Visitors will enjoy exploring the fascinating geology, marine life (including a possible sea turtle sighting), and bird species.
