Hotel Updates: Bird Island Lodge

Bird Island Featured in Top German Travel Blog Wolkenweit

Bird Island – One of the Treasures of this Earth (by Simone Schwerdtner)

“Who would have thought that on Bird Island awaits the whitest, most isolated and perhaps the most beautiful beaches in the Seychelles? When I set foot on the almost snow-white sand for the very first time and experience the views of the turquoise sea, I get goose bumps. Snorkeling, kayaking or just walking? We cannot decide for our first day at the beach but finally opt to hike around the island just once under the hot equatorial sun.
