ATTRACTIONS: (a few major)
Comoros' tourism infrastructure is rather underdeveloped due to an insecure political climate. The accommodations available are far from plush. The pace is slow and relaxing.
The four islands making up the Comoros are rich in culture and history. Due to the predominately Islam traditions and culture, women are expected to show modesty and cover up and other than at tourist faclities, alcohol is not in great supply.
The main attractions of these beautiful islands are the isolated beaches, eco tours, fishing and sailing venues, reef diving and stunning mountain scenery, including an active volcano, Mount Karthala.
