Bird Island Lodge

Bird Island is a true masterpiece of nature, right at the edge of where the Seychelles bank drops to depths of more than 1500 meters. The island is home to a fantastic array of birds which may be watched and photographed from arm's length! Sea turtles lay their eggs on the white powdery beaches and the world's oldest land turtle ("Esmeralda", born in 1771!!!) happily roams the island.

During the south-east trade winds, is colonised by a million of sooty terns which lay their eggs on their own private square foot of territory. Please click here for an overview of nature's "schedule" on Bird Island.

Twenty-four comfortable bungalows (with free WiFi), a reputation for good cuisine and a convivial atmosphere complement great opportunities for snorkelling, deep-sea fishing and nature watching by excellence. Sunsets are spectacular here, as is the night sky, in the midst of the Indian Ocean!

Regularly, the extremely knowledgeable and kind nature guide Robby will conduct tours around the island, it's an excellent way of getting to know the island and to learn about things big or small on Bird.

We recommend staying on Bird Island for two nights at least, three or four nights is better. If you can afford it, stay even longer. It's a truly fantastic place!
