Curieuse Island is a small granitic island in the Seychelles off the north coast of Praslin, the second largest island in the Seychelles. The island is notable for being one of only two islands native to the Coco de Mer. Today it is the home of roughly 300 Aldabra Giant Tortoises. The island is also known for giant takamaka trees, a large hawksbill turtle rookery, and several bird species including the rare Seychelles Black Parrot that is found only here and on nearby Praslin Island. This island is strictly protected to allow Giant tortoises to prosper. If you are on Praslin, do make sure to plan a daytrip to Curieuse and perhaps use the local Ziblo boat charter.

In 1833 Curieuse became a leper colony that didn't cease operations until 1965. Today ruins of the leprosarium remain, as well as the former physician's residence which is now an educational centre and museum. The ruins of the leper colony are now well blended into the landscape and include Creole colonial architecture, which consists of a doctor's house built for Dr. William Macgregor in 1973, and is now turned into a museum containing information about Curieuse Island's history. In 1979, Curieuse and surrounding waters were declared the Curieuse Marine National Park in order to protect the native wildlife.

Also very popular is the southern part of the island, reached by traversing a mangrove swamp that provides a walkway for park visitors. If time permits visit “The restaurant,” with its breezy atmosphere, a relaxed and casual venue. The restaurant offers top quality seafood prepared with light modern cooking methods. A small but fine a la carte menu is complimented by a comprehensive daily changing specialty list.
