Denis Island holidays

Reached by a 30-minute flight from Mahe, Denis Island is a large (143 hectare) coral sand cay, located on the northern rim of the Seychelles plateau. It is more than a private island resort offering luxury accommodation; it is a living, working island where vegetables, herbs and spices grow; poultry, pigs and cattle are farmed and tropical fruits grow in an ever expanding orchard. Since 1996, Denis Island has worked with various national and international partners on conservation and ecosystem rehabilitation projects and as a result it is home to the endemic Seychelles warbler, the Seychelles fody, the Seychelles magpie-robin and the Seychelles paradise flycatcher. Today, there is nowhere else in the world where you can see all 4 species in one place. The long white sand beaches offer safe swimming as well as excellent snorkelling and game fishing. Dolphins and whales (in season) as well as turtles (all year) and giant tortoises are also a frequent sight.
