Fregate Island – to reopen in 2024
A 20 minute flight from Mahé, and surrounded by its own coral reef, Fregate is one of the most isolated islands in the Seychelles archipelago. Dominated by the 125 metre high Mount Signal, the two square kilometre granite island boasts secluded pristine white sand beaches and its own special variety of wildlife.
