The Alphonse Atoll in Seychelles is renowned for its expansive sea flats--up to 10,000 acres of white sand flats provide easy wading and world-class fishing. Perhaps the most challenging fish to catch is the fabled milkfish, a turbo-charged algae eater that can grow to over 40 pounds. Very nice accommodations.
