Aride Island



This island, purchased for a conservation group by chocolate-maker Christopher Cadbury in the 1970s, but now in the care of the Seychelles' Island Conservation Society, is a hugely important seabird breeding colony. There are no tourist facilities or overnight stays, but tour boats depart from Praslin on Sunday, Monday and Wednesday 10 am-3 pm, and Thursday by special arrangement. These are the only times Aride is open to visitors. 35 mi/55 km northeast of Mahe.
