A good place to leave from Chagos is Peros Banhos. Having left the large lagoon through the NW Pass, from WPIS351, north of Diamond Island, the route runs due west along parallel 5 °S. The route is clear of dangers, but the Seychelles should be approached with caution because of the rocks and reefs that surround them. The safest approach is to make landfall at Frigate Island by setting course for WP IS352, five miles SE of that island. From there
