In the case of Moyenne Island that's not necessary, he got the Seychellois navy to protect him. Pretty much all they do is hunt pirates in their
northern waters...the ones coming down from Somalia. And they are VERY effective at it. I saw them in action once when visiting a private island up
The nice thing about Seychelles is that it hardly changes much over the years. I visited the islands several times over the past 20 years, and
compared to Thailand for example (which has new resorts popping up all the time, with mass tourism destroying paradises like Koh Phi Phi), they are
VERY careful with new developments.
The island is now a national park by the way...the smallest in the world.
