"Discover and enjoy the most enchanting islands of Seychelles with Loyalty Charter!"

Curieuse Island

Curieuse is a small granite island 2.9 kilometres from Praslin with a very unique biodiversity. Curieuse Marine National Park is a sanctuary to a big variety of flora and fauna. On the southern part of the island is a mangrove swamp that is traversed by a walkway for park visitors. The island is also known for coco de merpalms, giant takamaka trees, a large hawksbill turtle rookery and several bird species, such as the rare Seychelles black parrot Coracopis nigra barklyi, a parrot found only here and on Praslin.


One of the most interesting areas is the mangrove swamp which can be accessed by boardwalks. Look out for the giant crabs.

St Pierre Island

St. Pierre Island is a raised reef island west of Providence Atoll and part of Farquhar Group, which belongs to the Outer Islands of the Seychelles. It has a distance of 736 km southwest of the capital, Victoria, on Mahé Island.

 

St. Pierre is a tiny granite islet with a handful of coconut palm trees. It’s a picture-perfect miniature island in the middle of the ocean. St. Pierre is considered as one of Seychelles best snorkelling locations. You will see a wide variety of colourful fish and sea turtles.

Sister Island

The islands of Grande Soeur and Petite Soeur are commonly referred to as 'The Sisters Islands.'
 

Situated 6km northeast of neighbouring La Digue and in close proximity to Félicité and to Ile Cocos, these two islands are a popular venue for excursions on account of their spectacular ocean panoramas and the excellent opportunities they offer for trekking and picnicking.
 

These islands are also famous for snorkelling and diving in waters where the marine life is prolific. The hotel Château de Feuilles on Praslin manages the islands. 

Coco Island

Cocos Islands, also called Ile Aux Cocos, are a group of small islets in the Seychelles archipelago. They can be found 7 km north of La Digue and lies in close proximity to La Digue's other neighbours, Félicité Island and the Sisters Islands. 

Around this idyllic isle bathed by crystal-clear waters, you can swim amid turtles and hundreds of fish above a wealth of coral. Top-quality sites are not rare in the Seychelles, but lovers of snorkeling should not leave the archipelago without exploring this exceptional spot.

Felicite Island


Félicité Island is a small heavy forested granitic island 4 kilometres east of La Digue in the Seychelles. It is 2.68 square kilometres and today is a resort that can handle up to 20 guests. Felicite was a coconut plantation in the early 1900s and had a native population of about 50.

Felicite, Ile Cocos (part of a marine park), Les Soeurs, and Marianne Island, which has world-class diving areas are all considered satellite islands of La Digue. Over half of the islands in Seychelles are protected natural reserves, and just a few islands are open for development. Felicite is one such island, that it is said will be developed 'tastefully', with eco-friendly policies and homes for private ownership as well as a luxury resort.

La Digue Island

The smallest of the three main inhabited islands, with a population of around 2000 people, La Digue is the perfect mix of local culture and beautiful white sand beaches. With an area of just 10 km2, La Digue is best discovered by bike or a traditional ox cart and it will give you the most authentic travel experience in the Seychelles.

The things that left the biggest impression was the old Copra mill which demonstrated the traditional method of milling the coconuts to produce the coconut oil, an old cemetery, and the beaches. Anse Cocos Beach is very quiet located on the South side of the island, but if you only visit one beach in La Digue, make it the famous white sand beach of Anse Source D’Argent with the giant granite boulders. It will take your breath away! 

Cousin Island

Cousin Island is a small granitic island of the Seychelles, lying 2 km west of Praslin. It is a nature reserve protected under Seychelles law as a Special Reserve. It is managed by Nature Seychelles, a national nonprofit organization and Partner of BirdLife International, by which it has been identified as an Important Bird Area.

Cousin Island Special Reserve is home to some of Seychelles rarest endemic birds and it’s a real birdwatcher’s paradise. It’s also a nesting site for hawksbill turtles. This beautiful nature reserve and pristine ecosystem plays host to some of Seychelles rarest birds and other endemic species. Experienced guides will share all the secrets of this magical island with you.
