Beach "Denis Island Beaches" · Other Islands
At a Glance:
Denis Island is one of the Seychelles’ smaller, coral islands. Located about 50km (30 miles) north of Praslin, it is the second-northernmost island of the Seychelles archipelago, beaten only by Bird Island. The island is now a private luxury resort, and, as you can expect, the beaches here are truly spectacular thanks to their untouched nature and pristine beauty.
Getting to the island is simple enough, with daily charter flights between Mahé and Denis operated by Air Seychelles, as well as helicopter charters available on request. Even from the air, the beaches on Denis Island will take your breath away thanks to their mixture of white sandy, turquoise water, and beautiful greenery. Thankfully, due to the island’s small size, all of the beaches can be reached on foot with no problems in just a few minutes from the island’s accommodation.
In terms of beach activities, the island has you well-covered. Guests can enjoy swimming in the coral lagoon, go snorkelling or scuba diving in the coral reef, kayak around the island, sunbathe on the sand under the sun, and much more. Children are welcome on the island too, with various non-motorised watersports and activities available for young travellers too! Besides that, visitors who simply want to walk around the island, enjoying the sand between their toes and the uninterrupted views of the Indian Ocean can do so with ease.
Denis Island offers stunning beaches and excellent facilities thanks to the resort, including spa, restaurant, bar, and more. The isolated location of the island also gives the beaches a nice, peaceful atmosphere that can be hard to find on the busier main islands of the Seychelles, making Denis Island’s beaches a real gem for any Seychelles holidaymaker lucky enough to see them first-hand.
