Bird Island, Seychelles

Honeymooners, beach lovers and naturalists – including David Attenborough – visit to revel in the natural beauty. But it’s the visiting birdlife that gives the island its name.

If you’re planning a honeymoon, or just want a romantic break far away from the bustle of normal life – a little bird will tell you which destination to choose.

Bird Island is a complete gem. With only 80 people in total on the island at one time, its only hotel is simple, nestling in a charming setting, on an unspoiled beach – and that ‘untouched nature’ is attracting some rather select visitors to the island.

The world’s most famous naturalist – Sir David Attenborough – has filmed here. As a keen naturalist, or bird lover, or photographer you will be similarly impressed and enchanted. There are 24 recorded resident species of birds plus over 95 migratory visitors. Dolphins and rays swim close to the shore, whilst green turtles breed on the fine sandy beaches.
