Bird Island is the most northerly of the Seychelles, a 30-minute flight from Mahé. White sand beaches at the edge of transparent waters border this 170-acre coral cay. Where better to be a castaway?

The island is on the edge of the Seychelles Bank and ideal for big-game fishing. Hawksbill turtles nest on the beach from October through February and, from May to October, there is the spectacle of 2 million migrant sooty terns breeding on the island.

Bird Island Lodge is an award-winning, delightful little retreat of 24 spacious garden cottages set among palm and casuarinas trees, just steps from the ocean. Each has a king-size, four-poster bed, lounge area and private patio. The restaurant has a reputation for its cooking, which is based on fresh, local ingredients.
