The thousands of incredible tropical birds that call this coral cay home give Bird Island its name. The northernmost island of the Seychelles archipelago, this private island has a strong focus on nature and conservation, and offers visitors an authentic ‘paradise island’ experience. A lush green interior is surrounded by miles of unspoilt white coral sand beaches and crystal clear azure waters.
On Bird Island, nature comes first. In addition to its famous sooty terns, some of the most noticeable inhabitants of the island are the giant land tortoises, which roam the island enjoying the same peace, tranquillity and sanctuary as their human visitors. These friendly, placid creatures are a big hit with all the island’s guests – particularly younger visitors. All of the island’s 250 acres are dedicated as a nature reserve and bird sanctuary, and visitor numbers are strictly limited – making this a very special and exclusive destination.
The emphasis on Bird Island is very much on relaxation and an appreciation of all the wonders and delights nature has to offer. It’s a great place to learn more about conservation and ecology, and to see for yourself the incredible birds and marine life that make this island so special.
The sparkling clear waters around the island are perfect for swimming and snorkelling, providing a gentle environment in which you can be immersed in the natural world and come face to face with the beautiful tropical fish and marine life meandering just below the surface.
Accommodation here is provided exclusively at the chalets of Bird Island Lodge, offering comfortable, unpretentious island living and friendly, helpful staff. The lodge’s restaurant, bar and boutique provide everything you will need for an enjoyable stay on this delightful tropical island – from delicious local cuisine to clothing and essentials. It’s just as well, because apart from the lodge’s guests and staff there is no one else on Bird Island!
This quiet, secluded island is ideal for romantic getaways and honeymoons, and it’s also a wonderful destination for families – particularly those with children interested in animals and conservation. The award-winning Bird Island is widely recognised for its strong eco-tourism credentials.
