Natural Bird Sanctuary
Bird Island is like no other place on earth. It is the sanctuary home of the most Sooty Terns on the planet. Nearly 1MM migrate and nest there. About 5 Giant tortoises inhabit Bird Island, as well as a dozen other species of birds. Bring ear plugs for sleeping. There is no AC and the chalets are open-air, allowing for a realistic CO-habitation with non-threatening critters. There is a nest in every area of each tree, on the island. The by-product of a natural bird sanctuary is phosphorous and can irritate people who are sensitive to smells. The food is marginal, but true to Seychellian culture. The staff is more than pleasant. The service is sincere, warm, friendly and knowledgeable. The amenities in the lodge and rooms are dated. For the price-point, do not expect a resort or comforts. The bed is comfortable and the rooms are large, the showers have warm water. But where can you have giant tortoise greet you daily outside your chalet door or on a walk? Come to be awed by nature, beautiful white sand beaches, clear and warm waters, amazing sunsets, roaming with the tortoise and a wild-habitat that you cannot buy anywhere else. A 3 or 4 night stay seems sufficient. Green and Hawksbill Turtles lay their eggs here. Inquire times if you are planning your trip around this wonder. We have been to Bird two years in a row (and are from the states). The weather is high 80’s, low 90’s in spring. We love the outdoors and good people. Come experience a place like no-other on earth.

Great for the experience
Great when you take it for what it is: an amazing island with beautiful scenery, exceptional beaches, great for swimming, snorkeling ok (big fish, but whitened coral, turtles), the birds, tortoises. Food was good, plentiful, second servings always possible. Extra good papaya, avocado and sherbet/ice cream. Some currys tastier than others. No A/C (ok at night with fan, but very hot during the day) Mattress would benefit to be changed. Functional toilet and shower with hot water.

Bird Island - WOW !!
If you want to get away from modern electrontics and traffic this is the place. A wonderful, peaceful Island you share with the birds and giant tortoise. Very good food and service included! Not cheep as only 50 guests max can stay on Bird, but a special one. Flight from Mahe is 35 mins. The most beautiful beaches will greet you. A walk around the Island is 5km. A chance to see turtles on the beaches laying eggs. If you want an idyllic, peaceful few days this is the place.
