Amirante Islands

Amirante Islands, a group lying about 300 miles N.N.E. of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean, almost connected with the Seychelles, and dependent, like them, on the Government of Mauritius. They were ceded to England in 1814. The islands are small, averaging from l-1/2 to 2-1/2 miles in length, and not rising more than 25 feet above sea level.
