Mahé is the international gateway to this sun-soaked archipelago and home to the country’s capital, Victoria. Being the largest of the Seychelles islands, this is where around 90% of the Seychelles’ population live. Mahé offers its visitors both a quintessential tropical beach vacation as well as a taste of local Creole culture.
Praslin is Seychelles’ second largest island but an entirely different experience to Mahé. Fall in love with this lush, blue water paradise. Don’t miss the ancient palm forest of Praslin National Park, or a boat trip to meet the giant tortoises at nearby Curieuse.
Arriving at La Digue feels like sailing into a painting, with powder white sand and turquoise waters. The beaches here are spectacular, particularly Grand Anse and Anse Source d’Argent, both strewn with giant granite rocks. La Digue is the laid-back, sleepier sibling to Mahé and Praslin, sparsely populated and motor-free.
For the most discerning traveller, there are Seychelles private islands: North, Denis and Desroches. All of which offer an extraordinarily authentic tropical experience, but with the highest level of luxury and service.
