As the largest of the Seychelles' islands, Mahe is archetypal paradise.

Home to towering granite peaks as the impressive backdrop, Mahe boasts lush jungle and palm-fringed, white sand beaches galore; we love driving the spectacular coastline to discover some of the heavenly beaches and coves that the island has to offer. Bays are set like topaz jewels around the coastline, as crystalline waters lap at the silky sand. Search no longer: perfect is here. Take a trip to Victoria, the capital city, to visit the markets and art galleries, visit the botanical gardens and explore Port Launay Marine National Park for unbelievable snorkelling and whale shark sightings.

Combine your stay in Mahe with the relatively untouched Praslin for a truly peaceful escape, taking in the nature, flora and fauna of the Seychelles at your own pace. 

Destination Highlights

  • Head to Port Launay Marine National Park for incredible snorkelling and marine wildlife
  • Hosting vibrant markets and stunning architecture at the worlds smallest capital city - Victoria
  • Mahé is home to a large variety of outstanding beachfront accommodation
