Fregate Island Private is an island in Seychelles. The island is the easternmost of the granitic Inner Islands of the Seychelles. It is 2.07 square kilometres (0.80 square miles) and is primarily known for the Oetker Collection’s secluded private luxury resort which funds an environmental programme to restore habitat and protect rare species.

Fregate Island is a unique destination where one can experience the best the Seychelles has to offer. The name recalls legends and tales of treasure chests buried under the sands, as immortalized in Robert Louis Stevenson’s “Treasure Island”. And with over ten kilometers of roads and walking trails, you can comfortably explore the island – both with your own electric buggy and by foot.

The beaches are a nesting habitat for two species of sea turtle: the critically endangered Hawksbill Turtle and the endangered Green Turtle. Over 2,200 Aldabra giant tortoises roam free over the island. It also has endemic species including the flightless Fregate Island giant tenebrionid beetle and some species of millipedes.
