Cousine Island holidays

Cousine Island, with an area of only 25 hectares, is a tiny granite island, situated just 2 km off the west coast of Praslin. The island is a private nature reserve, home to five of Seychelles eleven endemic land birds including the Seychelles magpie robin, Seychelles sunbird, Seychelles fody, Seychelles blue pigeon and the warbler. Seven species of nesting seabirds also live on the island as well as a variety of other endemic flora and fauna. It is also an important breeding site for Hawksbill turtles. As the island’s creatures have no natural predators, they have no fear of humans; making close encounters a common occurrence. With flawless deserted beaches of soft white sand, tall feathery palms dancing in the sea breeze and lush tropical vegetation, Cousine is a small haven, ensuring that visitors discover a degree of privacy almost impossible to find in today’s hectic world. If you seek complete tranquillity, solace and peace, then Cousine Island is simply as close as you will ever get.
