Pristine and uncrowded, Aride is the northernmost island of the granitic Seychelles. The island hosts one of the most important seabird populations in the Indian Ocean with more breeding species than any other island in Seychelles. Eighteen species of native birds (including five only found in the Seychelles) with over one million seabirds breed on Aride, including the world’s largest colonies of Lesser Noddy and Tropical Shearwater, the world’s only hilltop colony of Sooty Terns and the western Indian Ocean’s largest colony of Roseate Tern.

This is also the only breeding colony of Red-tailed Tropicbirds east of Aldabra and huge numbers of Brown Noddy, White Tern and Wedge-tailed Shearwater can be found. It is an impressive site as thousands of Great and Lesser Frigatebirds soar over the northern cliffs.
