About Aride Island: Located just 10 km north of Praslin, spend an entire day at the Seychelles' seabird nesting island, Aride. Home to about 1.25 million seabirds, this nature reserve is a breeding ground for lesser noddies, roseate terns and Audubon's Shearwater, among other species on the island. Observe and feel at home in the untouched native woodlands, full of such rich fauna as skinks, geckos and harmless snakes and beautiful flora including the rare and endemic Wright's Gardenia. This is an exciting opportunity indeed for bird lovers to have a closer view of birds nesting. A delicious barbecue awaits guests on the exquisite beaches after a guided tour to the breathtaking hilltop of Aride Island.
