Cosmoledo Atoll (Seychelles)

Sergeant Rivers visited Cosmoledo Atoll in 1878. He reported, judging by turtle remains on the beach, that the atoll was frequently visited by whalers and fishermen. He found a "turtle park" and recently destroyed hut on Menai Island. A hut on Wizard's southern point had been built from the wreckage of Merry Monarch (April 1874). He reported Menai was covered with tall mangroves. Shortly after this Cosmoledo was settled and a visitor in 1895, noted maize, goats and 200-300 coconut trees. By 1901 there were four men on North-east Island, two on Menai, and one on Wizard.

Until 1992, Cosmoledo was inhabited as a turtling and fishing station. Then it was abandoned.

Fly-fishing cruises to Cosmoledo Atoll are organized on a regular basis.

The IDC proposed a plan for eco-resort with 20 rooms to be built at Menai, 2019.
