“Absolutely fantastic”
Reviewed 29 December 2013

This is a must to visit and the tale of the Englishman who lived there is even better. Definitely not to be missed.

“Day trip”
Reviewed 2 December 2013

Visited with the local Rotary. Very interesting reading and walking the island that was the home for many years of Yorkshire man Graham Grimshaw. Interesting memorabillia of his residency in his living quarters which are now used by the wardens who look after the island for the trust he set up.Good path right round the island also good snorkelling in the channel between the islands also to the north.

“Nature at its best”
Reviewed 18 October 2013

Moyenne Island is a part of the Seychelles Marine National Park and it is really amazing... The intact nature, the beautiful tortoises and the crystal clear sea and the beach around are what I remember it most about! The place is accessible only by boat, but several local agencies offer guided tours.
