Seychelles Experiences

  • Powder-soft beaches are abundant in the Seychelles and you’ll never be far from the sound of gentle lapping waves on the shore. Huge granite boulders peep out of the turquoise sea on Beau Vallon Beach on Mahé, while Anse Lazio on Praslin sits between emerald slopes and crystal-clear shallow waters, making it perfect for families.
  • You can hike through the verdant Morne Seychellois National Park on Mahé, and marvel at the flora and fauna, and cascading waterfalls, or climb up the rugged mountains on Silhouette Island for panoramic views. Scuba dive in clear waters down to colourful coral reefs and sunken wrecks to spot sightings of stingrays, reef sharks, hawksbill turtles, manta rays and whale sharks. Seychelles travel packages can include romantic activities such as sunset cruises, sea kayaking, or private dinners on remote islands.
  • The small but pretty capital city of Victoria on Mahé is home to colonial architecture and the Sir Selwyn Selwyn Clarke Market where you can pick up coconut products, spices, and handicrafts as a memento of the ultimate tropical holiday experience. On Praslin Island, learn about the traditions and culture at the Praslin Museum, admire artwork at the George Camille Art Gallery, or learn about the famous Black Pearls at the Black Pearl Ocean Farm, the only one of its kind in the Indian Ocean.
  • You can go island-hopping to more remote isles for picnics and snorkelling in hidden coves, or head to L’Union Estate on La Digue for horse riding and close encounters with huge land tortoises.
