By far the smallest of the Comoros Islands, Moheli is a popular tourist haunt spread over a 290 square kilometer area. With markets, restaurants, hotels and internet cafes, Moheli has Fomboni serving as the regional administrative capital. However, tourists generally flock to Nioumachoua which is the second largest town on this island. A host of water related tourist activities available for guests on the Moheli Island include fishing, snorkeling, whale watching, boating, sailing, canoeing, kayaking and seeing coral reefs and several uninhabited isles dotted along the shoreline.
Hiking, biking and bird watching in the coastal and primary rainforest areas of the Moheli Island are also largely appreciated by the visitors. Located at a distance of 30 kilometers from the airport, lodges and most tourist facilities are available at Nioumachoua Town to engross the visitors. Tourists can also engage here in shopping and buy products like carpets, potteries and embroidery works created by local artisans.
