Bird Island Lodge is the only place to stay on Bird Island, the northernmost island in the Seychelles archipelago. This low-rise coralline paradise, about 60 miles from Mahe, has striking sandy beaches bordered by beautifuly turquoise seas, but these are not the primary reasons to stay here. Instead, wildlife viewing is its trump card. Here the birdlife is phenomenal − it's unlike almost any other wildlife spectacle that we know.

Our view of Bird Island Lodge

Bird Island is a fascinating place: the proximity to birds so totally unperturbed by human presence is utterly magic. Gazing at fairy tern's feeding their chicks on the tiniest of branches, sitting next to ground-nesting white-tailed tropic birds and gazing at (quite literally) a huge field of roosting Sooty Terns are all amazing wildlife experiences. This is the reason to come to the island. Bird Island Lodge itself is laid-back and unpretentious. It is not a place for pampering, luxuries or super service; rather it is a place to marvel at the avian spectacle from a comfortable but simple setting.
