Cousine Island

Cousine Island is a conservation award-winning location, voted the worlds' best at London's World Travel Market in November 2010...


The inner islands of the Seychelles are unique as the only granitic islands in the world, which accounts for the beautiful and varied landscape of Cousine Island. Just off the coast of Praslin Island and surrounded by the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean which maintain a balmy temperature range year round, this island is a haven for unique, rare and endangered flora and fauna. Cousine Island Seychelles actively promotes and protects the local environment - ensuring that the habitats favoured by rare species are left intact.

In 1992, Cousine Island was purchased by an individual who made a conscious decision to return the island to its natural state. This conservation effort work has involved the identification and removal of non-native vegetation including a coconut plantation, then replacing alien species with native plants. In addition, work has been done to restore habitats for native species including the critically endangered Seychelles Magpie Robin and Hawksbill turtles. Cousine Island has become a tremendous success, with a record 113 Hawksbill turtle nests recorded in the 2010 season!

There are now Seychelles warblers in the trees and wonderful giant Aldabra tortoises roaming the island, plus a host of other indigenous creatures making their home on Cousine Island. At 25 hectares with stretches of white sand beaches, granitic rock formations and lush vegetation, the restoration has transformed Cousine Island Seychelles.
