Mahé in detail

Getting Around


Rickety but reliable bus services fan out across Mahé from the main terminal in Victoria, but for many trips (eg Beau Vallon to Baie Lazare), you'll need to change buses in the capital.


Hiring a car is by far the easiest way to get around. Expect to pay €40 to €50 for a small car per day. Remember that there is no direct road between Beau Vallon and the southwestern coast – you'll need to drive via Victoria.


Taxis are plentiful along most of the main roads, around the main hotel strips and in Victoria. Sample fares start from Rs 600 from the airport to Beau Vallon, or from Rs 400 from the airport to Victoria.
