One of the Seychelles’ 42 inner islands, North Island is a true tropical paradise. Ringed by white, sandy beaches and covered in tropical foliage, the island retains its pristine appearance and unspoiled good looks. Though it’s just 2.1km long and 1.2km wide, this petite island packs a huge amount in, offering holidaymakers a great choice of things to do, as well as a variety of breathtaking landscapes to explore.
Unlike many of the other inhabited islands in the Seychelles, North Island has been largely returned to its former pristine state. Many of the artificially introduced species of plants and animals have been removed and native tortoises, trees and birds reintroduced by the island’s former owners.
Visitors to the island looking for sun, sea and relaxation will find four amazing beaches to explore: East Beach, West Beach, Honeymoon Cove and Dive Beach. Each of these spectacular stretches of sand has its own unique character and its own stunning views.
Though it can be tempting to spend an entire holiday relaxing on the beach, there are lots of other activities for visitors to the island to sink their teeth into. Those who want to explore more of North Island and learn about its unique habitat can hire an island buggy or a bike and journey through the lush jungle and tropical foliage of the interior.
Workshops with local wildlife experts can be arranged, giving visitors the chance to find out all about the native plants and animals that call the island home.
When the tropical sun is high in the sky, there are few things better than cooling off with a dip in the island’s refreshing waters. Holidaymakers can try their hand at scuba diving, snorkelling, stand up paddle boarding, kayaking and surfing. Excursions to other nearby islands can also be arranged, while anglers can take advantage of the abundant sealife in the area with a specially arranged fishing trip.
Visitors who want to relax and unwind during their stay will find a wealth of indulgent treatments available on the island, with massages, therapies and other luxurious pampering sessions available in the island’s spa.
If you’re looking for an unspoiled destination for a luxurious warm getaway, North Island could be for you. Why not book your trip now and start looking forward to the holiday of a lifetime?
