Explore an ornithologist’s paradise in Bird Island. With more than 20 bird species around the year, and a nesting site for turtles, this small, tropical island has plenty to offer! It’s located on the northern edge of the Seychelles archipelago, about 60 miles away from Mahe. Surrounded by the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, Bird Island offers endless stretches of white sand beaches and a true ‘castaway’ feeling! The protective barrier reef in the east and the south is home to colourful tropical fish while the open beach area is perfect for swimming! Visit Esmeralda – the world’s largest land tortoise!
