Bird Island is one of the many granitic islands in Seychelles that together form the inner island group. It is approximately 105 kilometres from Mahe and is known to be one of the most beautiful well kept natural islands. Bird's nature and habitat is kept intact through all these years and is one that Seychelles can gladly boast about. True to its name, the island is known for being a safe haven for various kinds of birds who live here.
Bird Island was previously called the Ile aux Vaches which translates to the Island of the Manatees. The reason for this name was indeed the Manatees that were found in large amounts in the surrounding waters of Bird. Today, the island is a renowned spot that promotes ecotourism and has played a huge role in keeping the island green.
