Fairy Tern Island Holiday

The aptly named Bird Island is a birder's paradise, the home, breeding ground and migrant stop off for hundreds of species and countless thousands of individuals.

Fairy Tern Island Holiday: Day-by-day

More detailed information of what each day entails, and the various places you’ll stay on the Fairy Tern Island Holiday. Everything we do is completely tailor-made so while this is an idea which works well, we’ll always design an itinerary just for you.


Day 1

Starts: Seychelles International Airport Mahé

Bird Island Lodge
Days 1-4

Bird Island Lodge

3 nights
Full BoardBird Island, Seychelles

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.

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. See our full report on Bird Island Lodge
