Start your Seychelles road trip in Victoria, the country’s capital – it’s home to a third of the its population but is still Africa’s smallest capital city. Take a walk around Victoria’s sights before setting off. The market is extra busy early in the morning, with fishermen selling their catch as well as fruit and vegetable stalls, aromatic spices, crafts and souvenirs. Then there’s the Victoria Clocktower, which looks like a mini Big Ben. It’s actually a replica of the clock on Vauxhall Bridge in London which was brought over in 1903 .....when the Seychelles became a British colony. There’s also a cathedral, Natural History museum, colourful Hindu temple and Botanical Gardens with spice grove and mini rainforest. But this is the Seychelles, so you don’t want to spend all day in a city, so head out of Victoria and off down Mahé’s east coast. Show less

Anse Lazio beach is an absolute must-see when you are traveling in the Seychelles Islands. With plush white sand and turquoise water, this is the most impressive beach you’ll find anywhere. Despite being voted as the world’s most beautiful countless times, Anse Lazio beach isn’t too crowded. You’ll easily find your own place in the sun, and it’s worth spending at least one afternoon there. Be sure to bring your snorkeling gear! You can snorkel right off of the shores. Once you are ready to take to the sea, there are boat charters that’ll .....bring you deep-sea fishing and give you an incredible view. There are also some inner-islands excursions that’ll take you out for some snorkeling and a BBQ. Show less

Praslin, the second largest island of the Seychelles, has a lot to offer visitors– it was definitely one of my favorite stops. The island has stunning beaches, like Anse Lazio, emerald waters, and overgrown jungles. What makes Praslin one of the most unique islands is that it’s home to Vallée de Mai Nature Reserve. This protected forest is full of rare fauna, and most famously the endemic coco de mer palm– a tree that produces the world’s largest seed and palm flower. This seed, or “double coconut”, takes 7 years to grow .....while the tree takes 50 years to mature! The reserve is one of Seychelles’ two UNESCO World Heritage Sites and has been nicknamed the Garden of Eden. I joined the excursion to Vallée de Mai and Anse Lazio beach and would highly recommend it. Other excursions include helicopter rides, deep sea fishing, and golf. Show less

Getting There: Jumping between islands in the Seychelles is pretty easy– you can choose from ferries or flights. There are speed ferries that run between the main island, Mahé, and Praslin (with onward connections to La Digue), that take about 50 minutes. A flight from Mahé to Praslin will cost a bit more, however, it will only be about 15 minutes (I opted for the flight!). Helpful Tip:During peak season, you could end up spending hours at the airport, depending on flight schedules and availability, so always be sure to book ahead.

Once a coconut plantation, Cousin Island was created to save the Seychelles Warbler, a small local songbird that was nearly extinct. Thanks to its planning and funding from eco-tourism, Cousin Island is now a safe refuge for countless birds. In my opinion, a few hours is ample time to explore. The island is only 0.13 square miles. The island only receives about 10,000 visitors a year! So, it is relatively less-traveled than other islands in the Seychelles. You won’t find any accommodation, restaurants, or even trash cans on the island in efforts to minimize waste .....and preserve the pristine environment. When you are arriving, you won’t dock on the shores of Cousin Island. Since this place is an essential refuge for so many animals, the Nature Seychelles conservationists are very careful to keep the wildlife safe. This means that you’ll be ferried over to the island on a smaller boat to make sure that there aren’t any pests hopping off your boat with you. Visitors 12 years old and up will need to pay an entrance fee of SR500 ($37 USD), which goes towards the maintenance of the Reserve. Helpful Tip: Make sure you bring water, mosquito repellent, and sun block as these are not available to buy on the island. The mosquitos are crazy on Cousin Island, so come prepared (they were the worst here than on any other island I visited!). I recommend wearing something pretty full coverage, like a maxi dress, scarf, or something else lightweight that’ll give you a layer over your skin.  Show less

You could spend your entire Seychelles escape just lounging on the beaches. There are immaculate white-sand beaches all over the islands, and the weather is ideal pretty much every day of the year. When you are ready to look beyond the shores, there are adventure companies all over Mahé that’ll offer you an incredible day out. Go rock climbing, kayaking, or scuba diving, or scale the granite rocks. Any of the adventure companies around the island will get you set up with all of the equipment that you need for a fun .....day out. Mahé is also home to Morne Seychellois National Park and offers tons of outdoor activities and hiking trails for those who want to get some of the best views over the island. If you’re a fish lover, you’ll want to try the famous tuna from right off the shores of Mahé Island. The city of Victoria is a good place to get a better idea of the Seychellois life. While you’re there, I recommend you check out Victoria Market. It’s a good spot to grab souvenirs and some ultrafresh seafood. Besides the city of Victoria, other areas of the island include Northolme, where I stayed for a night, as well as Eden Island. Eden Island is part of Mahé Island, and is home to Eden Plaza which has restaurants and shops you can explore– it’s an up-and-coming hotspot! Show less

Finish up in Beau Vallon before heading back to Victoria. Beau Vallon is Mahé’s most popular beach, but that doesn’t mean its packed with sunloungers and high-rise hotels. This long curve of sandy has plenty of space and a row of shady palm and takamaka trees. At the end of the beach there are usually vendors selling fresh coconuts and local fruit. Or if you’re there on a Wednesday you can pick up curries or grilled fish at the evening market. Otherwise the Boathouse is a good option for dinner, with .....an open-sided restaurant which lets the breeze in and a nightly Creole buffet with 20 different local dishes (430 rupees). Then all you need is a sunset cocktail on the beach to finish off a perfect Mahé Seychelles road trip. Show less

Just sailing into Laraie Bay on Curieuse Island was an amazing experience. The harbor is filled with hundreds of giant parrotfish, and the landscape is breathtaking. In addition to Praslin, coco de mer palms grow on Curieuse as well. There’s such lush vegetation, and takamaka trees, hanging out over the red sand beaches. The island is also known for its giant tortoises, which took me back to memories of my Galápagos cruise. Native to many Seychelles islands, the tortoise had once been almost extinct, but thanks to a conservation program, they have been reintroduced to the .....island. Today, you can see tortoises roaming freely! This is the day that Crystal Esprit normally takes out their submersible, so be sure to sign up in advance to reserve your spot. The Crystal Esprit is the only passenger yacht with a submersible in the world and it’s a once in a lifetime experience. Aside from a spin in the submersible, you can also head to the beach for snorkeling and paddle boarding. In the evening, all guests are invited back to the island for a “Fun in the Sun” social hour with champagne and caviar on the beach, compliments of Crystal Esprit. When we returned to the yacht, the swim deck was set up for swimming off the back of the ship. It was such a special treat and one of my favorite days on the trip!

The roads are smooth and make for a fun ride and it is completely exhilarating when you ride by a beach when the moonlight shines on the ocean. You have to see it and experience it for yourself to actually know what I am talking about.

The east coast of Mahé is the most built-up part of the island, but once you pass the airport and Eden Island development things start to get more relaxed. Which might have something to do with the fact that this is where you’ll find the Takamaka rum distillery. It’s part of a 200-year-old estate which originally made coconut oil and distilled cinnamon and patchouli.

To the visitor the birds seem plentiful, but not as abundant as the absolutely beautiful fairy tern, which is snow white with large, dark eyes, and usually ‘terns’ up in twos. As the birds mate for life, and are often found sitting on low branches chattering with each other. The most amazing thing about the wildlife on Frégate is that none have natural predators, and they are not afraid of humans coming close. Tortoises can fetch high prices on the black market. To reduce temptation for local staff, they are awarded a sum .....of money for each baby tortoise they find in the forest and deliver to Beate’s sanctuary. Talking about baby tortoises is, of course, a very relative thing, as these animals live to around 200 years of age, and it is difficult to determine the gender of the tortoise until they have matured.

Once you get up to the edge of Port Glaud, turn inland and follow the Sans Souci road up into the mountains. Morne Seychellois National Park covers a fifth of Mahé, with a mix of landscapes from coastal mangroves to thick jungle peaks. The road zigzags its way uphill through steep hairpin bends, so it’s not long until you start getting panoramic views back down to the coast.

Fiery chillies and freshly-caught seafood are the heart of Seychellois cuisine. Fish lovers can have their dishes roasted, grilled, fried, wrapped in banana leaves or even curried, accompanied by a hearty serving of vegetables and deliciously fluffy long-grain rice. There are quite a few unusual foods too – from shark chutney to bat meat – in fact fruit bat soup is one of the nations’ favourites. Don’t worry if the idea of bat doesn’t do it for you though, the inhabitants have plenty of other delicacies too, such as breadfruit, .....caramelised bananas and coconut tart for dessert. Wash them down with a glass of Ecu beer and you’ll feel truly authentic. Dig in at one of Mahé’s many restaurants – we love the Veranda Café and The Maharajas, both of which have received a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence. Show less

If you read more traditional Seychelles guides, such as Lonely Planet, most are quick to tell you that access to Le Petite Anse Kerlan and other comparable beaches are limited by their respective hotel and that you are to call ahead to let them know you are coming. In theory, the hotel is to let their security guard know to allow you entry, but in practice it doesn't always work this way. We tried this, and our concierge told us that the beach was booked up for almost a week out. .....What? Apparently this is common practice at hotels that have monopolies on a beach as they will do just about anything they can to turn you away. Roll up in your car? No parking for available non-guests. Looking to reserve a spot? Sorry all chairs are booked for a period coincidentally longer than you are staying (admittedly we know someone who did get in to Anse Georgette this way). The only thing we did not try was walking up and asking to enter, and this was primarily due to the fact that parking is hard to come by outside of hotel properties as well. My guess is that the public beach notation doesn't matter, only the questionable and not-so-public reservation system, and we would've been turned away. Our hotel concierge told us if we showed up asking to have a drink at the bar or to have a “small salad” at the restaurant we could probably get in as hotels are more than happy to take your money. We happily gave this one a try as we were already prepared for rejection and figured it'd be good for a laugh. The scowling security guard phoned reception, asked our hotel name (thankfully it was an expensive one), told us the bar we wanted to go to was closed, and very begrudgingly wrote us a pass to go to the “pool bar” that we had to keep with us at all times. You could tell they really didn't want us to go to the beach, and we were quite shocked we got in at all. Not being satisfied with the pool bar, we stopped at the first building we saw (which was most certainly not the pool bar), asked where to find the Takamaka Beach bar, and the employee not only called to find out if they were open (they were), but ordered a golf cart escort for us so we could leave our car there. We were going to the beach (bar). Naturally, no one really cared we were there after that. Show less

Art is where the shopping truly comes alive at the high-end in the Seychelles, and a lot of local and expat artists have set up galleries, which are dotted right across the islands. My wife is something of an art lover, so we set aside a half day (in our air-conditioned car) to troll through as many galleries as we could in tandem, with a circumnavigation of Mahe. There are too many places to list but the highlights of our day would have to be the coastal-inspired paintings of Donald .....Adelaide and the Art Adelaide Studio, Andrew Gee’s watercolours, both at Baie Lazare; or the sculpture works of Antonio Fiippin, also at Baie Lazare, and Tom Bowers at Santa Maria, Anse a la Mouche.

Seychelles ultimate luxury barefoot paradise islands are legendary and there are several within the ‘inner islands’, most requiring helicopter transfers. They are perfect as a base for your entire stay if you simply wish to chill, or can be combined into a tailor-made itinerary with helicopter’s between different islands. Seychelles’ most iconic luxury island paradise, indeed, one of the most renowned in the world, is North Island. A 20minute helicopter flight from Mahe, it’s a frequent haunt of the rich and famous with supreme levels of privacy with just 11 huge .....private villas; stays are all-inclusive and also include many of the activities. Fregate Island offers a similar concept. Both islands have strong eco-sustainability programmes. Close to Praslin, Six Senses Zil Pasyon has 30 stylish, spacious private Villas and Residences on the private island of Felicite. Occupying a third of the island, the resort has a host of sustainability initiatives to protect the island environment. Snorkelling and diving are superb, particularly at nearby Coco and Sisters islands. Another plus is that if you feel the need to escape the island for the day, there’s a complimentary speedboat transfer to La Digue. Just a 10minute speedboat ride off the coast of Mahe is a tiny island paradise, JA Enchanted Island Resort. Ideal for couples with just 10 Seychellois style pool villas, this is a tiny island idyll perfect for a few days’ solitude. Once you’ve passed through immigration at the airport, it’s just a 10min car transfer followed by a 10min speedboat ride across the bay to your tiny island sanctuary. It twins well with outer islands. The Hilton Seychelles Labriz resort is set on mountainous Silhouette Island, a 40 minute boat transfer from Mahe. Offering many facilities, including an excellent spa and superb diving, it’s a great choice for families. Show less

For a barefoot island paradise, the captivating outer island of Denis Island is one of Mahlatini’s favourites – 30 minutes north of Mahe by once daily light aircraft flight. Privately-owned, its 25 beachside cottages have been deliberately designed to offer a little more rustic simplicity combined with a relaxed 5* island experience. The cuisine is out of this world, while diving and fishing are excellent as well. The whole ethos of the island is about sustainability and guests are positively encouraged to discover more about it. Denis is perfect for a .....honeymoon or special anniversary, as well as anyone seeking to get away from it all. It also makes a great family holiday – one where nature is at the heart of everyday activities. Ideal as a single centre Seychelles holiday for 7 nights or so, it also makes a great combo with another Seychelles island – Mahe being the best, such as at the Carana Beach boutique hotel, the best budget option, while 5* options are numerous (see above).

We already had our certifications prior to the trip and we used it to dive around Praslin with Octopus Diving Center and around Mahé with Big Blue Divers and we loved it. It’s definitely a location worth visiting for divers with a huge variety of marine life. Yet, what’s quite sad to watch is the dying coral reef all around the dive sites, which is mostly caused by the climate change resulting in warming oceans, rising sea levels and increasing acidity of the water. Therefore, we would like to use .....this opportunity to raise awareness on the issue as nd encourage everyone to incorporate eco-friendly habits such as decreasing the meat consumption, cutting out the disposable plastics and committing to recycling.

Mission Lodge is one of the most vital landmarks of Mahe Island, Seychelles. The viewing place and the adjoining ruins have been declared a UNESCO World place due to its important contribution in the eradication of slavery in the area. It has been declared a National Monument since 1984 due to its vital contribution in educating freed slave children in the seventeen century. This effort by the missionaries eventually led to vital contributions of the freed African slave-children who formed a vital part in the structure of the Creole Seychellois community of today.

Seychelles Island

Recommended by 1 blogger
The Seychelles is made up of 115 islands, and whilst many of these are uninhabited, getting on a plane or a boat and taking some time to visit them is really worth doing. Each island has its own vibe, from the relative hustle and bustle of the main island, Mahe, to the peace and tranquility that you would find on the most Northerly island, Bird. The smaller islands, such as Bird and Denis, are classical flat desert island, just a ring of white sandy beach, a few palm trees, some birds, .....you, and a cocktail. The larger islands, such as Mahe and Praslin, are granitic and more lush, with deep rainforest interiors for exploring and towering peaks for the hardier hikers. There is something here for everyone, from lying on the beach, to exploring the peaks, to trying to spot any of the unique to Seychelles birds. Show less
