Aride Island


... is situated 62km north of the international airport on Mahe and 10km north of Prasin in the Seychelles.

This small island, 2km by 0.5km, was purchased for the Royal Society for Nature Conservation in 1973 by Christopher Cadbury of chocolate fame and is run as a nature reserve.

The most northerly of the granite islands, Aride has a mountainous spine, heavily forested on the lower slopes and with a gorgeous beach to the south. There are large colonies of lesser noddy, roseate tern and frigate in particular.

Aride is a lovely place to visit April to October, the south coast anchorages being more exposed the remainder of the year.
