Find the secret waterfall in Praslin. This hidden gem provides you with the perfect tranquil spot for relaxing and can be visited when you take a trip to the Vallée de Mai Nature Reserve. Thrill seekers can head over to the Constance Ephelia resort, which has onsite zip lines allowing you to get above the deep forest canopy and take in incredible views. The resort also has excellent rock climbing facilities, which are sure to get your heart beating faster.

Experience idyllic surroundings and exotic wildlife in Seychelles

Nature lovers are spoilt for choice when it comes to beautiful wildlife, as the islands of Seychelles are teeming with rare, exotic breeds, both on land and in the sea. You can expect to see Aldabra giant tortoises, fruit bats, tree frogs, sooty terns, white fairy terns, terrapins, hawksbill turtles and clownfish.

“For the ultimate natural island experience, stay on a small private island resort such as Bird Island or Denis Private Island. Or to make your stay extra special, try renting your own island on Fregate Island for a once in a lifetime luxury holiday.”

Seychelles Ocean Festival

Treat yourself to this underwater festival which aims to highlight the importance of the marine world. Seychelles Ocean Festival is held every year in December and includes photography competitions, thought provoking presentations by famous guest speakers and plenty of diving and snorkelling activities to try.

 

Dried Fish

A must try in Seychelles is dried fish. It might not sound too appealing, but this delicacy dates back to a time where there were no fridges, so the native people of Seychelles salted the fish and dried it for several days. If you have fish curry, you might get to try dried fish. Alternatively, you can find it in roughy, which includes dried fish, tomatoes, garlic, onion and chili sauce, most often served with rice.

 

Fish Curry

Looking for a traditional dish packed with flavour? Then you need to try fish curry, which is available in local restaurants and food stands. Fish curry uses bonito (which is a meaty fish) and coconut milk which really helps to bring out delicious flavours that will melt in your mouth.

 

Octopus Curry

Discover the popular Seychelles dish that is octopus curry. Every Seychellois person has their own preferences when it comes to this dish, so be sure to sample it at different restaurants to find the right one for you.

 

Bat Curry

Try something a little different with this exotic dish. Bat curry uses fruit bats, which are considered to be a local delicacy. You can find this dish at the oldest restaurant on Mahé Island, at Marie Antoinette’s, which uses all local ingredients. 

 

Breadfruit Chips

Revitalise and give your energy levels a boost by trying some Breadfruit chips. Breadfruits are a type of tropical fruit. Breadfruit chips are lightly salted fried crisps that make an ideal snack to pack in your bag while you’re exploring the island.

Ladob

Sweet tooths should try ladob. This delicious dessert is made from bananas or sweet potato. Cooked in coconut milk and sugar, the ladobs are then flavoured with nutmeg, cinnamon and fresh vanilla, and are the perfect way to finish a meal.
