Welcome to paradise, Banyan Tree style

The last nest on Intendance beach has hatched and luckily for a group of new arrivals at Banyan Tree Resort, Seychelles, Adam spotted them before they all got away.

Holding them “hostage”, Adam waited while staff at reception informed clients from the Resort of the happy event and interrupted check-in for the new arrivals, allowing them to experience a once in life time encounter with baby turtles.
A group of about 15 newly arrived tourists gathered to watch the last of the 2008-09 hatchlings leaving Intendance beach, photo Banyan Tree.
