Savour mouth-watering cuisine with Indian, French and oriental influences.

Highlights

  • The Seychelles diet is healthy and nutritious including fresh mangos, coconut and breadfruit – the community live on fish, seafood and shellfish dishes, with rice – fish is often steamed, grilled, wrapped in banana leaves, baked, salted and smoked. 
  • Visit the highest point in Seychelles, Morne Seychellois (905 metres), on Mahé, within a group of more than 40 central, mountainous granitic islands and a second group of more than 70 smaller, flat, coralline islands on the outer edges.
  • Take time to explore the Aldabra Islands, a large atoll, conserved home to tens of thousands of giant tortoises, the world’s oldest living creatures, rescued from the brink of extinction.  
  • Hike along a popular nature trail called the Anse Major Nature Trail that leads to this very beach where you can swim too – it’s an easy 1 hour hike to explore the northwest of the Morne Seychellois National Park. 
  • Cycle around La Digue, a tiny island where mostly bicycles are used to get around on just like the long ago days, when oxcarts were also used and today there is just one ox cart left.

What to Love About Seychelles

  • A ROBINSON CRUSOE EXPERIENCE: Escape the Mahé Island crowds and set sail to the less populated islands of Praslin and La Digue. Throw the anchor here where impossibly white beaches, unique trees and plants, rare creatures and birds create tranquillity and a laidback ambiance. Trade the pressures of everyday monotony for a few days in paradise. Soak up the stunning seascapes and enjoy the simple pleasures of barefoot bliss.
  • A WATERY WONDERLAND WITH INFINITE POSSIBILITIES: There’s so much to keep you on your toes both above and under the sea. Scuba dive among the world’s beautiful coral reefs, where a myriad of tropical fishes fleet. Swim with the hawksbill turtle and other esteemed marine life. Go island hopping on a cruise to some of the uninhabited islands and snorkel directly off the beaches.
  • GET OUT INTO NATURE: Rent a bicycle and enjoy a leisurely ride along the bustling streets. Or try a round of golf on a 9 hole course. Go for a hike in one of the National Parks to summit a hill top for fantastic views. Indulgent spa treatments and yoga offer relaxation afterwards.
  • RENT A CAR: From the capital city Victoria, head out at your own pace around the island. Stop off for lunch at little coastal towns or explore the many off the beat beaches, only known to the locals.
  • LAID BACK LOCALS: The warmth and hospitality of the people of Seychelles is what keeps visitors coming back year after year. The mixed culture speaks creole and the people are a blend of French, Chinese, Indian and Malaysian.

Did you know?

Some 50% of the Seychelles limited land area is set aside as national parks and reserves! Yes, Seychelles is among the world’s leading countries that strives to protect lands for threatened species, allocating 42% of its territory for conservation. Seychelles today is known for success stories in protecting its flora and fauna – the rare Seychelles black parrot, the national bird of the country, is now protected.

Visit this premier island holiday destination and unravel its numerous hidden secrets. The freshwater crab is endemic to the Seychelles, and a further 26 species of crabs and five species of hermit crabs live on the islands. Today, a healthy yet fragile population of 150,000 tortoises live solely on the atoll of Aldabra, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The granitic islands of Seychelles are home to about 75 endemic plant species, and particularly well known is the coco de mer, a species of palm sometimes nicknamed the “love nut” (the shape of its “double” coconut resembles buttocks) – it produces the world’s heaviest seed. The jellyfish tree is to be found in only a few locations on Mahé. This strange and ancient plant seems to reproduce only in cultivation and not in the wild.

OUR SELECTION: THE BEST DESTINATIONS TO VISIT IN SEYCHELLES
Denis Island Seychelles

Discover an island that exists as its own organism, floating in the Indian Ocean like a tiny rock. Book your tropical Seychelles island holiday if you are an adventurous explorer and stay a while to experience the magic of Denis Island. Explore this environmental utopia, fringed with pure white sands and swaying palm trees.

Mahe Seychelles

Most people know Mahe as a large island hosting most of the people of the Seychelles. What they don’t know is that this vast populated island also offers more than 60 spectacular beaches, a rich Creole culture and cuisine, mind-blowing forests, waterfalls and mountain hikes, exquisite view sites and some wonderful water sports too across clear turquoise ocean waters.

North Island Seychelles

Take a thrilling helicopter flip from Mahe in the Seychelles to North Island, a 20-minute adventure where you look down upon clear azure ocean waters and islands fringed with white beaches. Maybe a whale will breach as you fly over, or a pod of dolphins rise to wave their fins?

Praslin Seychelles

If you want to get away from it all, catch a plane to Praslin. A large island with very few people and plenty of wild corners. A laid-back, sleepy place where you simply have to slow down to fit in, to look around you and to really appreciate what is. Discover the second largest island in the Seychelles.
