FAUNA & FLORA BIODIVERSITY
The Outer Islands of Seychelles holds unique biological treasures that deserve to be preserved for future generations.
Due to its remote location, Desroches plays host to a variety of endemic vegetation, animal life and exquisite marine life that call the surrounding azure waters their home. The sandy beaches and coconut forests make it a quiet retreat as well as breeding ground for a host of migratory seabirds and turtles.
With over 130 bird species recorded, guests can expect glimpses of Red-footed boobies and frigatebirds. Desroches island is also home to a small reintroduced population of Aldabra giant tortoises.
The waters beyond are home to an underwater world that inspires and excites. Heading further away from the golden sandy beaches, the blue waters hold awe-inspiring coral reefs with exotic, colourful creatures of all shapes and sizes. The reefs are made up of gigantic sea fans and walls of thriving ecosystems.
