Bird Island Travel Guide
Bird Island Local History
Bird Island is the Seychelles most northerly island, once known as Lie aux Vaches, because of the sea cows that thrived there, it lies directly in the path of the seafarers approaching the Seychelles from a northerly direction. Consequently it can be assumed that early Arab seafarers visited the shores on their voyages of exploration down the east coast of Africa.
The island came to the notice of the outside world in 1891 when a boatload of Seychellois bound for Bird sailed into a storm and were driven to the shores of Arabia. It took them a year to get home and on the way there many of them died. In the 1970's tourism came to Bird Island when the Bird Island Lodge was built. This is the only accommodation available on this privately owned island.
Bird Island stands at the forefront of Eco tourism as there are several conservation programmers running on the island.
