Every island in the Seychelles has its own personality. With a total population of 95,000 across all 115 islands it puts size and scale in to perspective. Mahé's impressive mountainous back drop becomes apparent as soon as you step off the plane. Take a morning stroll in the countries capital Victoria, learn about the history and visit the local market to become a part of island life. A short 15 minute flight and you'll be in Praslin, enjoy a slower pace and take a stroll on Anse Lazio beach. Visit Vallée de Mai National park to spot the native Black Parrot and the Coco de Mer nut. Enjoy the sea breeze over to La Digue and take a step back in time once again, where the main mode of transport is bicycle and the perfect way to see the island.
