Discovery Trip in Saint Brandon

Discover and contribute to preserving Saint Brandon

 

Holiday destinations are plenty, yet there are some destinations that keep in mind that we have done much to harm our earth, let's try to preserve holiday destinations and contribute towards the survival of pristine sanctuaries. Climate change and the subsequent impact on the global environment stand at the fore of many people’s consciousness. That’s why making responsible travel choices has become even more crucial. Throughout the years, Raphael Fishing has made environmental stewardship and ethical visitor’s practices a priority, allowing visitors to enjoy the beauty of St Brandon while minimizing human impact over the atoll.

With its crystalline and turquoise waters that lap gently at flawless and powder-white beaches, the discovery trip in Saint Brandon embodies a paradisiac archetypal island dream adventure. It also remains blissfully untouched due to its remoteness. The company is very much concerned with marine life conservation and preserving the site as a major bird sanctuary for this region of the world.

From intrusive alerts to constant social media sharingtechnology is an ever-present guest at our dinner tables, in our office meeting spaces, and on our morning commutes. It’s even snuck its way into experiences meant to be relaxing and revitalizing, like vacations. While electronic devices can certainly help ease some travel troubles, it can also be a relief to step away from your phone or computer.

And the best way to do that is by removing the temptation entirely—no TVs, no Wi-Fi— and indulge in some much-deserved digital detoxing. With its crystalline, turquoise waters that lap gently at flawless, powder-white beaches, Saint Brandon, embodies the archetypal island's paradise dream. It also remains blissfully untouched due to its remoteness. Raphael Fishing is very much concerned with marine life conservation and preserving the site as a major bird sanctuary for this region of the world.

If you're looking for that ultimate digital detox holiday, check out our trips to Saint Brandon.
