There are a lot of countries in the world that most of us have never heard about and although it’s not good for those countries economy, It’s a great news for adventurous travelers.
Comoros, an island country is made of three islands. It’s considered as an African country.
Recent history of Comoros
Comoros is (Probably) the only African island that was discovered by Africans who started living there and start a country. In recent history, it was colonized by France (Like most other African countries) but when it came to independence, one of the islands called Mayotte, voted against it and remained as a French territory while they formed a country.
After a few years, Anjouan, one of the three islands decided to join France, like their cousin, Mayotte which got rejected by the French government and eventually with UN’s help, they remained as a part of Comoros with more power over their island.

People in Comoros
Almost everyone in the islands identifies as Comorian, ethnically.
People are friendly and welcoming. All of them speak 3 languages of French, Arabic, and a their local language called Comoran.
After becoming a country, they struggled financially almost always and if it wasn’t for France’s aid and money, they were in a worse position by now. Most of them leave their country to work in other places like Mayotte (The island that’s still a French territory) because they have more jobs, free healthcare and free education.
What to do in Comoros
Comoros is cheap!
The flight to this country isn’t cheap because there aren’t many flights daily but if you get there, everything is cheap enough to make you say, “Wow!”.

Beaches in Comoros
The beaches are not as stunning as you might think but they’re still beautiful and not overcrowded at all. You’ll have the water and sands on one side and trees (mostly coconut) on the other side.
