I highly recommend you take the time to go over to Cousin Island for a tour of the nature preserve there. Landing on the island is a blast in itself. Boats are literally launched up on the sand at full-speed from the water. The captain picks up the motor just in time for you to arrive on the island and jump out of the boat without getting your feet wet!

There are birds all over the place (Fairy Terns, Magpie Robins, and Tropic Birds) and they aren't afraid of humans in the least bit. We also saw a lot of skinks, lizards and hermit crabs.

The tour guides are very friendly and live on the island to study the birds. The tour was very informative and a great way to see the natural habitat of the Seychelles.
