What to do in Comoros: The Island of the Moon You've Never Heard Of

Have you ever thought about traveling to an island so enchanting that it is known as 'Moon Island'? Yes, that's where we're taking you today! Let's go to the Comoros, an archipelago hidden in the Indian Ocean.


The Comoros, despite being small, have a great cultural and historical richness. A mix of African, Arab, Malagasy and French influences, which created a unique and vibrant society."


We will now highlight five places that cannot be missed on our itinerary: the capital Moroni, with its vibrant market and the ancient Vendredi Mosque; the Moheli Marine Park, a true paradise for marine life lovers; the Karthala Volcano, for adventurers on duty; ylang-ylang plantations, whose flowers are used to make perfumes; and, of course, the beautiful white sand beaches of Chindini.


In the Comoros islands, the currency used is the Comorian franc and the official languages are Comorian, French and Arabic. And we, Brazilians, need to apply for a visa to visit the country.

Despite its natural beauty, Comoros faces serious socioeconomic and political challenges. The nation is one of the least developed in the world, with a high unemployment rate and frequent political instability. However, the population remains resilient and hopes for a better future.


Now, let's get to the secret we promised: did you know that Comoros is one of the world's largest producers of vanilla, ylang-ylang and cloves? Yes, this small nation has great importance in the fragrance industry. The perfume you are wearing right now probably has a touch of the Comoros!

We arrived in Comoros via Air Austral, after passing through Noisy Be in Madagascar, and as soon as we arrived we saw that the airport and the country's structure is very precarious despite its natural beauty.
