Bird Island holidays

Just a 30 minutes flight from Mahe, Bird Island is the Seychelles’ most northerly island, surrounded by pristine white beaches and crystal blue waters. Located on the edge of the Seychelles Bank, Bird Island offers excellent big game fishing and from May to October, part of the island is home to millions of nesting sooty terns. Year round the island is home to at least 20 other bird species, making it an ornithologist’s heaven. Bird Island is also an important nesting site for turtles and boasts the world’s largest land tortoise, Esmeralda. The island is surrounded by beautiful white sandy beaches and takes a total time of about 30 minutes to walk around. The coral reef offers good snorkelling possibilities.
