Welcome to Bird
Bird is the ultimate in ecotourism and birdlife-viewing. Hundreds of thousands of sooty terns, fairy terns and common noddies descend en masse between April and October to nest on this coral island that lies 95km north of Mahé. You just have to sit on your verandah and birds will come to land on your head. Hawksbill turtles breed on the island's beaches between November and March, while their land-bound relatives lumber around the interior. Green turtles also use the sandy shores for their nests.
Bird Island is also a great place to decompress, with two fantastic beaches and a wonderfully relaxing atmosphere.
