Hi everyone - I am staying one night in the Seychelles on my way to Madagascar. I want to see the giant tortoises that they have at the botanical gardens (I thought they lived on the main Island but it appears they are only at the botanical gardens). Where would you recommend to stay that is not too far from the airport or the botanical gardens.
I want to stay 3 nigts in La digue and 4 night in Praslin, and i'm having a hard time to figure out when is the best time to visit.
I want a warm weather with no rain or showers,and without seaweeds. I'v read that April and May are the best month, but when i checked the weather for May-this month, on Accuweather web, it shows that may wiil be rainy almost the entire month.
Then i thoght about July or Aogust, but iv'e read that on those months the a lot of the beaches in Praslin and La digue…
We are travelling to see our family in Western Australia in October and planning a couple of weeks in the Seychelles en route.
So many islands; so many options! We are a fairly fit mid-late sixties couple looking for a quiet stay to enjoy relaxing beach life with some swimming and snorkelling - preferably snorkelling close to the shore for a nervous snorkeller - me!
We are hoping to book a small hotel or guest house rather than the huge 5* resort hotels if possible.
Any advice on location…
A friend and I are looking for affordable accommodations in Victoria or Beau Vallon area. We are senior citizens so don't want a hostel or place without an ensuite bath. We will be taking a snorkel trip on a boat leaving from Victoria, but will have a few days before the boat. We don't plan on renting a car, so need someplace within a reasonably priced taxi ride from the airport and the port.
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
Yes I know it isnt big but since we will bring a baby we would prefer the best location on the island. What beach on the west coast is the nicest one (except d'argent)? Is the "center" on the island La Passe? When I look for cheap guest houses most of them are around Anse Severe. Is that kind of off?
We are planning for a self catering trip to the three main islands in October. We will bring our one year old so we would like to know about the sizes and prices in supermarkets on the islands since we plan to do all our cooking. I guess Victoria has dscent sized supermarket but what about Praslin and La Digue? When I googled I found that they opened a good sized supermarket on La Digue a year or so ago. I think it was called STC or something similiar.
I'm gonna spend about a month travelling around Rwanda and Tanzania with my wife and then I'll have about 2 weeks alone as she flies back to the US. I'm thinking about going to The Seychelles for 2 weeks but I have the feeling I'll only meet couples there. Have you encountered many single people there? I'll be there in the first two weeks of August.
We are a family and have 12 days for our holiday. We decided to go both Seyshelles and Mauritius and will go in early September.
What is the optimal days for each country? We thought 6 days each.
If we spend 6 days on Seychelles how should we divide our days to islands? Our travel agent said 4 on Mahe, 1 Praslin and 1 la Digue since there are a lot waves in Praslin. We are thinking staying on Mahe and daily visit to Praslin and La Digue.
Is it true how are the waves in Praslin? I ve…
In October, my family and I will be visiting the Seychelles. We have decided to do as following:
15th-18th on Mahé.
19th-21th on Praslin.
So, 4 days on Mahé and 3 days on Praslin.
Now comes my question, as I am interested in your recommendations for excursions or activities on these two islands:
As for Mahé, we have decided to hike the mountain and see Victoria. Do you guys reckon that the botanical garden is worth seeing? - Or would you recommend anything else. Besides this…
