Denis Private Island
Denis Island is also home to some rare and endemic species such as the giant tortoise and magpie robin. With on-going conservation projects, parts of the island are being restored to their pre-discovery state. The island also has its own farm, cultivating most of its own produce from milk and eggs to oils and herbs.There are only 25 cottages on Denis Island which ensures a private and intimate experience. There are a host of land and water activities including some of the best scuba diving and deep sea fishing in the Seychelles.
This is very much similar to a Maldives experience so those familiar with the Maldives will feel totalling at home on the island. Although this island is larger than many in the Maldives. While this may have a humble 4-star rating be assured that this is a very exclusive place with relatively few on the island.
