Wild Isle: The Seychelles’ Frégate Island

Follow

The rare beetle is one of the highlights of the popular nature walk around the island, which lets you see flora and fauna at its best — such as giant banyan trees with their impressive aerial roots, the adoringly named sandragon trees, cashew-nut trees, as well as cinnamon and vanilla creeper shrubs — all surrounded by breathtaking views over the coast and the ocean.

Being a city girl, I must admit that, in general, countryside delights are not particularly high on my list of must-sees when travelling, but on Frégate Island I was converted. With nature so abundant and gorgeous, who needs pirate treasure?
