From Pirate Island to Conservation Sanctuary
In the 300 years since its discovery, this archipelago of 115 paradise islands has seen a host of settlers.
In the 17th century, pirates were among the first inhabitants, using islands like Fregate as a base for attacks against the British East India Company.
Declared a French colony in the 18th century, the Seychelles changed hands several times between the French and British before gaining independence in 1976. Throughout its history, the Seychelles has become home to people from all continents and is today famous for their blend of cultural backgrounds and for the warm welcome extended to guests from around the world.
Fregate Island is a unique destination where one can experience the best the Seychelles has to offer. The name recalls legends of long lost treasure chests, but today we present a conservation hideaway that is unique on this planet.

Discover the world’s most beautiful beach
The seven natural beaches, all with a brilliant sweep of powdery white sand, are located all around the island. There is even one beach that can be entirely privatized by flipping the ‘Beach Occupied’ sign and no other island guest will disturb you while sunbathing. Whenever you arrive at one of the beaches, there is always a cooler box with iced drinks, towels spread on loungers, a fresh water shower and you can call your private assistant for anything more you wish. This is genuinely wild beauty with delicate light luxury.
Each beach has its own special character, from Anse Victorin that has excellent snorkeling just 15 meters off shore, Marina Beach is protected by a coral reef and always calm. To reach Anse Park you walk through a jungle trail past giant tortoises heading to their mud bath.
Anse Bambous is just below Fregate House and has boogie boards and a beach bar for light lunch and crushed iced drinks. Grand Anse is our wildest and loveliest, you can hear the roar of the waves before you emerge from the jungle trail, order a cocktail and watch the magnificent sunsets.
Anse Victorin has been voted the most beautiful beach in the world on numerous occasions, but it is impossible to capture this panoramic place in words.
