Visit beautiful beaches separated by dramatic rock formations! The granitic North Island in Seychelles is located near Mahe and Praslin, and is only 2.5 km long and 1 km wide! The hills of North Island offer fabulous views, hundreds of coconut palms and takamaka trees dot the surrounding areas, and giant tortoises wander around. The beautiful coastline has four gently sloping white beaches which provide nesting places for both green and hawksbill turtles, and the offshore reefs are rich in tropical fish, offering superb opportunities for fishing, diving and snorkelling. You will see plenty of critically endangered animals that have been reintroduced in North Island.

The 11 villas of North Island have been individually handcrafted by local craftsmen with wood, local stone, glass and thatched 'alang alang' roofs. Each self-contained villa is raised a metre off the ground to catch the cooling island breezes and comprises two bedrooms, with a luxuriously proportioned master bedroom and a second bedroom, a writing and changing room area with a huge en-suite bathroom, a large marble bath and an outside shower.
