Is known for its birds... Its coral shores are also home to hawksbill and green turtles, and off shore you might spot a dugong. One of the most northerly of the Seychelles, Bird Island has been privately owned since the 60s when a an exclusive 24 bungalow resort was built on it. The resorts owners have been conscientious about looking after their environment though, and the creatures who live and nest here do so with protection.

If you don't come in May you'll miss out on one of the most interesting animal behaviour shows around, before nesting here large flocks of birds scoop up water from the sea to drop on the green grass to dry it out so that they can use it to make their nests. Smart birds...
