Delight in the pristine beauty of the Seychelles during this boat ride and excursion to an unspoiled island where nature abounds. Board a motorboat for an enjoyable ride to lush Aride Island, which is preserved by the Royal Society of Nature Conservation and is one of the most striking of the Seychelles’ granitic islands. You’ll discover the islet’s sheer escarpments offer spectacular views and numerous photo opportunities. Learn that Aride is also home to several avian species, such as frigate birds, brush warblers, roseate terns, red-tailed trop birds and the largest concentration of noddy and sooty terns of any granitic island in the Seychelles. You’ll wander along a nature trail, gaze at panoramic views of the surrounding islands and see the endangered Wright’s gardenia, unique to Aride Island. Savor time at your leisure to go for a swim in the Indian Ocean’s transparent waters or perhaps bask in the brilliant sun. As a memorable and tasty conclusion to your visit to this tropical wonderland, you’ll partake in a barbecue-style lunch on the glorious white-sand beach.
