My husband and I spend 4 nights on Bird Island together with friend couple. We love this island for its nature, the friendly service, the snorkeling fun, and most of all the amazing birding experience. As a new birder, I am greatly pleased by the fact that the birds are very at ease and one see them close up. The...

Stunning unspoilt beaches and turquoise warm waters makes this a beautiful place for a relaxing holiday. Nothing to do except swim, snorkel & enjoy the wildlife. Accommodation takes the form of simple basic beach 'huts' (no TV or air con) but they are a good size & clean. Food is freshly cooked comprising mainly fish & chicken. Staff are friendly...

If you like total relaxation, peace and quiet, a completely natural environment, walks on pristine white sand in the moonlight, snorkelling with turtles and beautiful tropical fish then this is for you. Add to this the chance of seeing turtles laying their eggs by day or night;giant land tortoises wandering everywhere; a huge colony of sooty terns and other terns...

This was the part of our Seychelles holiday I was really looking forward to and it certainly lived up to expectations. A short flight from Mahe and a smooth landing on a grass runway found us running for cover as the heavens opened. Our lodge was just as we expected and it was great to sit on the decking watching...

The moment you get a glimpse of Bird Island from the plane you just know you are going to have a fabulous time. The island is home to endless amounts of birds and 18 giant tortoises and is surrounded by very busy coral reef. We stayed on the island for 3 nights in the lodge no. 1. The lodges are...

We spent three nights on Bird Island. In brief, it was everything it promises to be. The island is ideal for those who appreciate the quietness of paradise. Wonderful, uncrowded beaches (fortunately the Lodge limits the number of guests on the island). This is a must for bird lovers. It is truly amazing to be surrounded by birds which are...

Bird Island takes your breath away from the moment you see it from the Sky as you approach for landing. It’s a magical place and a piece of paradise still left untouched.

Our second stay here and just as good as our first. This really is a special place and to keep it unspoilt and not to commercialised cant be easy for the owners.
