Map of the archipelago of Agalega, Mauritius

The Agalega Islands are two islands in the Indian Ocean, lying 1,100 km north of Mauritius. However, the islands administered by Mauritius have a total area of 70km².

The two islands are known for their coconuts, the production of which is the main industry, and for the Agalega Island Day Gecko. The North Island is home to the islands' airstrip and the capital of Vingt Cinq and village of La Fourche, while the South Island has the village of Sainte Rita.

At one time, no “money” was circulated on the islands. The only form of payment was by government-issued vouchers and debited directly from the inhabitants' salaries.
