Home Ports Mayotte Mayotte


Mayotte is an archipelago located in the Indian Ocean, off the coast of East Africa and north of Madagascar. It is a French Overseas Department, and is part of the Comoros Islands. The main island, Grande-Terre, is approximately 37 miles long and 20 miles wide, with a total area of 374 square miles. The other islands in the archipelago are Petite-Terre, Mohéli, and Anjouan.

The population of Mayotte is approximately 270,000 people, most of whom are of African, Malagasy, and Comoran descent. The official language is French, although the majority of people also speak Shimaore, a dialect of Swahili. The currency is the Euro, and the official religion is Islam.

Mayotte's tropical climate is characterized by hot and humid weather year-round. The terrain is mostly flat, with some hills and mountains in the north. The coastline is dotted with coral reefs and lagoons, and the interior is covered with dense rainforest.

Mayotte has a long and complex history, beginning with its first settlers, the Maore people, who arrived in the 8th century. The island was colonized by the French in the 19th century, and it remained a French colony until 1975, when it became an Overseas Department of France. In 2009, an independence referendum was held, but the people voted to remain part of France.

Today, Mayotte is a popular tourist destination, with its stunning beaches, lush rainforest, and vibrant culture. The economy is largely based on tourism, fishing, and agriculture. Mayotte is also known for its vibrant music and dance, as well as its unique cuisine.
