Aride Island In Seychelles (East Africa)

A visit to Aride Island in Seychelles is an essential stop for any visitor to discover what these islands were like before human settlement. Aride Island is the northernmost island of Seychelles’ granitic islands. It comprises an area of roughly 68 hectares and is 1.6 kilometers long and 0.6 km wide.

Attractions of Aride Island Nature Reserve

Aride Island shelters one of the most crucial seabird populations in the Indian Ocean. It is also home to more breeding species than any other spot in Seychelles. Eighteen species of native birds – including five only found in Seychelles – breed on Aride. The Island Conservation Society of Seychelles manages Aride as a nature reserve. Five bird species found only on Aride are Seychelles warbler, Seychelles fody, Seychelles magpie robin, Seychelles blue pigeon, and Seychelles Sunbird.

Aride is also the only natural colony of Wright's Gardenia; the lizard has one of the world’s most dense populations of reptiles. The island is home to the largest colony of tropical shearwater in the world. Non-breeding frigatebirds are also found here in great numbers. Green turtles and hawksbill turtles are regularly paying visit to the coast of Aride.

The best time to visit Aride Island Nature Reserve is November through February as migratory and endemic birds abound. The entry fees of Aride Island Nature Reserve is EUR 50 for adults and free entry for children aged below five. A two-hour guided walk of Arid Island Nature Reserve starts from the home of former island owner. Visitors can spot seabirds, walk past banana plantations, and encounter various species of plants.

Excursions to the island are operated by local tour operators. The local boat owners also take visitors to the island. Keep in mind that tour fee should also include the fee for the island. Visitors should maintain decorum and not make any noises to disrupt birdlife at the island.

      Really enjoyed our vacation in Seychelles. Special thanks to Julia from Holidays Box team for planning and making all the necessary arrangements. Even though the plan was on short notice, she still managed to accommodate all our preferences from choosing our stay to the overall itinerary. The properties recommended were excellent and transfers were all very well organized. She clarified every single query we had before the trip and even stayed in constant touch throughout the trip to make sure we were having the best possible time of our lives..

    • Trip to Seychelles

      We traveled to Seychelles from 16th July to 21st July. Overall, the trip was good but we faced problem regarding our flights. We had our Air Seychelles flight from Mumbai which was more than 12 hours delay leaving us stranded on Mumbai Airport. Also, terminals were different for Mumbai airport as we traveled from Delhi which caused a little difficulty traveling with the luggage as no arrangement was done for transport for different Mumbai airport terminals. The Creole transport services were great in Seychelles and they arranged cabs even after 12 hour flight delay. Domestic flight was arranged from Mahe airport to Praslin as ferry was not available. Travel agent also was cooperative as our planned iteniary was hauch pauch due to flight delay. We covered Praslin and Mahe islands and our stay was at Berjaya Resort at bother the places. We loved our stay at Berjaya Resort. The stay at Berjaya Resort at Mahe Resort. Amazing location and services with quality food. Loved it.
