Seychelles – Things to do

Seychelles Attractions

La Digue Cycling Tour

With only a handful of mechanised vehicles, cycling is the best way to reach the famous beaches of La Digue. From La Passe, peddle south towards the clear turquoise waters and pristine white sand of Anse Source D'Argent or north towards Anse Patates, a small cove with distinctive boulder formations. After a day at the beach, return to the marina at La Passe for a bite to eat before your catamaran speeds you back across the bay to Praslin.

Visit the Seychelles’ capital – Victoria

Victoria, the capital city of the Seychelles, is on Mahè, the principal island of the archipelago. The first recorded landing was made here in 1609 by an expedition of the British East India Company and the city's name hints at the island's colonial past. Pay a visit to the bustling market, selling fish, exotic fruit and fresh aromatic spices. For an authentic taste of the Seychelles, head to Marie Antoinette’s, a typical Creole house that has been serving up authentic cuisine for decades.

Seychelles Wildlife

Holidays to the Seychelles offer a unique opportunity to come face to face with some extraordinary wildlife. Marvel at the huge seabird colonies of Bird Island, the giant Aldabra tortoises that roam the North Island, or the tropical fish, coral reefs and turtles that inhabit the shallow waters and dazzling turquoise lagoons of the marine park at Baie Ternay.

Seychelles Island Hopping

With 115 pristine islands to choose from, it can be difficult to know where to start. Laid-back La Digue with its pristine beaches; the Cocos Island, with some of best snorkelling in the Seychelles; or Curieuse Island, a nature reserve where the island's giant tortoises roam free. Whatever your choice, hopping between the islands is simple and easy.

Discover Seychelles' Beaches

The Seychelles boasts some of the best beaches in the world. With warm turquoise waters, brilliant white sand, striking rock formations and abundant marine life, they are a haven for bathing, snorkelling and scuba diving. As the islands' iconic beaches are protected by law, they have avoided the over-development that is common to other island resorts, meaning you can enjoy beautiful natural forest-green backdrops during your stay.
