Denis island, perched at the very rim of the Seychelles plateau that divides its shallow waters from the mid-ocean depths, possesses a diverse eco-system that has changed little since the first explorers made landfall on her pristine shores. Largely undisturbed for more than two centuries and, despite having relatively recently opened her doors to the privileged few, Denis has changed remarkably little in all that time, her numerous treasures, both above and beneath the waves, still very much intact. Denis 143 hectares is covered with lush vegetation and by a spread of native trees, affording ample shade through which meander scenic pathways and tracks, inviting personal voyages of discovery. Here you will find such historic landmarks as the old village with houses dating back to 1935, the hospital, a picturesque chapel, the famous lighthouse and the island cemetery. Today, Denis island is as much as ever a haven for birdlife, providing a sanctuary for such species as noddies, terns, plovers, whimbrels, tropic birds and frigates to name but a few. Denis is also home to numerous sea turtles who return time and again to lay their eggs on her protected shoreline where they are monitored and tagged, providing valuable information to conservationists in their efforts to assist in the protection of the species.
