Denis Island is a privately owned coral island of 375 acres situated on the north-easterly edge of the Seychelles bank. The island is surrounded by powder white soft sandy beaches and turquoise waters which make Denis ideal for safe swimming and snorkelling. The calm lagoon around Denis Island is a haven for turtles and exotic marine life, just metres away from the beach.
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.

On land, large tracts of forest and habitat rehabilitated with native broad-leaved trees, rodents eradicated. Endemic bird species introduced as part of ongoing national efforts to increase breeding populations will lead to their improved status on the IUCN Globally Threatened Birds list.

Working to ensure the reef flats – essential nursery and feeding grounds for fish and green turtles – and its inhabitants, from damsels to seagrass beds, remain to play a crucial role in the ecosystem dynamics. Hawksbill and green turtles laying their eggs on Denis’ protected shoreline are monitored and tagged, providing valuable information assisting the protection of the species.
The restaurant at Denis Island is situated in the main building which is right on the beachfront. Here you’ll also find the bar and the lounge area which is split on two levels.
