The Sir Selwyn Selwyn-Clarke Market

The well laid-out, undercover market is emblematic of the Seychelles. Built in 1840, this market was primarily used by fishermen who were looking to peddle their daily catch. The Market is a very colourful place and do not forget to take your camera along. Saturday morning is the best time to visit, but it is open from Monday to Friday early morning till evenings and generally closed on Sundays. You can buy anything from top quality fresh fruits, vegetables, meat and fish and also have a decent variety of spices you will find many local craft and souvenir stands that sell for cheap.

If you are into architecture the sleepy, colonial-style Court House opposite, the Anglican St Paul's Cathedral (the oldest church in the archipelago) the Roman Catholic Cathedral of the Immaculate and the Capuchin House are impressive.

Swim in the Indian Ocean

From small, secluded coves to widespread, open bays, the Seychelles has it all. All the beaches on Seychelles are so pristine and stunning that it is difficult to recommend one over another. Pristine beaches, lapis lazuli to turquoise gradient lagoons and blessed weather conditions are the main ingredients that symbolize the beauty of the Seychelles. There are so many beaches to discover that often you will find the best ones completely empty. Swimming between June and October in the wildest bays on the southwest coast- Intendance, Takamaka and Baie Lazare can be really dangerous, but it's still worth a visit.
