Bird Island is not only one of the world's top eco-holiday destinations, but as its name suggests, it is also a successful wildlife reserve. Situated in the Indian Ocean in the most northerly archipelago of the Seychelles, it has over five kilometers of the finest white sandy beaches. It is, in short, a paradise island, where visitors can appreciate the conservation of wildlife in the most beautiful, tranquil setting and escape the hassles and chaos of ordinary life!

Bird Island Lodge offers a true desert island experience and the chance to escape the stresses of 21st century living. This stunning paradise retreat welcomes couples seeking a romantic and very relaxing holiday, or families who wish to explore the natural beauty and wildlife of the Seychelles. A decade ago, the island was declared a private nature reserve and guests at the Lodge are the only visitors to the island. It offers four kilometres of deserted white coral sand, a 200 year old Giant Tortoise, a reef teeming with colourful fauna and over twenty different species of birds, which is what the island is famous for.
It is a destination that will surely capture the imagination. It can be reached by a short 30 minute flight time from Mahe International airport.
The lodge features simple chalets that nestle between the island's old coconut plantations only a stroll away from the beach. Being the only hotel on the island ensures that guests are treated with first class service and the food is excellent - often fish caught that day by island fishermen. The emphasis here is on the beauty of the natural surroundings, and as such, there are no modern distractions such as televisions or telephones.
We have traveled many places, but this is for sure one not to be missed- a lovely team of people to keep it special and welcoming and so beautiful. I shall remember my 72nd birthday with much pleasure.
