Welcome to Seychelles


Splendid Beaches

Mother Nature was very generous with these 115 islands scattered in the Indian Ocean, and has spoiled them rotten. Undeniably, the beaches are the big attraction, and what beaches: exquisite ribbons of pearlescent sand lapped by topaz waters and backed by lush hills and big glacis boulders. And hardly a soul in sight. Choosing your favourite beach is like trying to pick a flavour of ice cream – they're all so good! Hot favourites include world-famous Anse Source d'Argent, secluded Anse Marron, sexy Anse Takamaka and picture-postcard perfect Anse Lazio.

Aquatic Delights

Diving and snorkelling are the most popular activities in the Seychelles, and rightly so. Healthy reefs, canyon-like terrain, shallow shelves, exciting shipwrecks, impressive granite outcrops and splendid coral gardens give divers and snorkellers almost instant access to a variety of environments. The water is warm and clear, and teeming with life from the tiniest juvenile tropical to the largest pelagic creature, including whale sharks. Whether you're an experienced diver or slapping on fins for the first time, there are sites for all levels. And you'll be welcomed by qualified, multilingual instructors in state-of-the-art dive centres.

Luxury Resorts

White-sand beaches, secluded coves, coral-coloured sunsets, swish hotels, slick restaurants, hushed spas. With such a dreamlike setting, it's not surprising that honeymooners and those seeking a glamorous tropical getaway have long had the Seychelles at the top of their wish lists. You too can live the high life at one of the country's star-spangled hotspots, provided you have the cash. If you’re not a millionaire, fear not. This paradise is more affordable than you think. On top of ultraluxurious options, the Seychelles has plenty of self-catering facilities and family-run guesthouses that are easier on the wallet and offer local colour.

Ecotourism & Wildlife Spotting

Charge your camera batteries, people – the Seychelles is not dubbed 'The Galàpagos of the Indian Ocean' for nothing. Watching sea turtles nesting on Bird Island's sandy beaches or giant Aldabra tortoises roaming freely on Curieuse is one of those once-in-a-lifetime experiences. If you're hoping to spot sooty terns, tropicbirds, warblers and magpie robins in their natural habitats, the bird sanctuaries of Aride, Cousin, and Bird Islands should figure heavily in your planning. And Praslin's Vallée de Mai is a slice of Eden where you can see the very rare coco de mer palms in their natural state.

St Anne Marine Park Full day boat trip from Mahe

Spend the day discovering one of Seychelles main attractions. If you’re in the Seychelles, why not spend a day amid the postcard-perfect scenery of Ste Anne Marine National Park off the north coast of Mahé? Whether you choose to snorkel through the rich marine life or just float in the crystal-clear waters of a sand bank, you’ll feel your senses ignite at being so immersed in nature.We depart from Eden island, in front of the Maharaja restaurant at 9a.m. You may park at the Eden Plaza basement parking.. After a 20-minute boat ride in a mostly protected bay, you’ll have the opportunity to go snorkeling and hopefully see rays, turtles and even baby sharks, among the large variety of other marine life.At 11 a.m. we make our way to Moyenne Island National Park, a conservation sanctuary with more species per square foot than anywhere else in the world. Now inhabited by over a hundred giant tortoises, a few caretakers and a dog called Yellow, among richly varied plant and bird life, Moyenne was once the home of Englishman Brendon Grimshaw, a former newspaper editor who bought the previously uninhabited island in 1962 and lived there alone until his death in 2012. Stroll along the island’s 3 miles of nature paths finding out about him, including how he’s buried there alongside two pirates. Don’t be surprised if Yellow follows along!We break to enjoy a sumptuous local Creole buffet lunch at the Jolly Roger Bar and Restaurant at 1.30 p.m., before heading to one of the beaches around Ste Anne Marine National Park (to be determined by tide and weather) at about 3 p.m, or go feed the fish.After some time relaxing, we make the return trip to the marine charter marina, Victoria, at 4.30 p.m., rounding off a truly memorable experience.

Full-Day Tour of Mahé

The tour begins with a transfer from your hotel for a stop in the colonial center of "the world's smallest capital", Victoria. Highlights here are a visit are the court buildings, museum, post office and the clock-tower (twin of the one outside London's Victoria Station). A turn around the corner takes you to the 'Codevar' building where local crafts, including the renowned Kreol (Creole Gold) are on display for sale. A walk across Albert Street leads you to the focal point of the town, its colorful market where stalls of fresh fish, tropical fruits & vegetables, herbs & spices, are displayed in an abundance of fragrances. This is followed by a drive across the Sans Soucis mountain pass, with a photo stop at the historical Mission Lodge, en-route to a Creole restaurant for lunch (included). After lunch, the tour continues around the southern tip of the island to the restored colonial plantation of 'Jardin du Roi', which is steeped in the short history of the Creoles as well as the Georges family, whose family tree apparently carries a link to Louis XVII of France. A cold drink of home-grown fruit welcomes visitors, before you tour the surrounding plantation of vegetables, exotic fruits, herbs and spices. The rest of the afternoon is for relaxation, with a stop at the Craft Village on the way back to your hotel, at around 4pm.
