7 Don’t-miss things to do in Seychelles – How best to enjoy your Seychelles trip

To be part of a stunning slice nature, visit Seychelles. The cuisine takes credit for the visits of foodies, and the picturesque setting tempts nature lovers from around the globe into visiting.

1

Anse Intendance, Mahe

This one of the most beautiful beaches in Mahe, and therefore a must-visit. It is a small and secluded crescent-shaped beach and can be reached from any hotel Mahe, including Berjaya Beau Vallon Bay Resort and Casino. The strong, large waves found here have made it a popular surfing spot, but swimming is a bit harder as there aren't many protective reefs. This palm-fringed, picturesque beach is a treat to photographers and nature lovers.

Baie Lazare, Mahe

This charming little village is named after Lazare Picault, who was an 18th-century French explorer; he was sent here by the French government to explore the lands. One of the most noteworthy tourist attractions in Baie Lazare is the neo-Gothic Baie Lazare Church; the church is dedicated to St. Francis of Assisi, and it brings you stunning views of the sea. Anse Soleil and Petite Anse are the most charming beaches found here, and strikingly blue waters are inviting to water sports lovers.

Curieuse Island

Curieuse Island is home to a programme that breeds giant tortoises, and you can see them roaming around freely on the russet-toned earth. This is one of the two places where you see coco de palm grow naturally. The island was once a leper colony, and you find ruins of the leprosarium as well as a preserved national monument. To access the island, you have to hop on a boat from Praslin Island.

Ste Anne National Marine Park

Located off the coast of Mahe, close to Victoria, Ste Anne National Park was the first national park in the India n Ocean. To witness the rich diversity of the park's coral reefs, go snorkelling and scuba diving. There are several parks set within the park, and you can explore them on day tours. Spending overnight on one of the islands is also a great idea. The park is a nesting site for hawksbill turtles, and you will find a luxury hotel here. Now home to mangroves and crocodiles, the site was a French settlement in the 1770s.

Anse Volbert

Anse Volbert is one of the beaches on Praslin Island; the beach is found on the northeast coast. The waters found around here are pleasantly warm, which makes for excellent swimming; the water is shallow, so you can swim with your kids if you wish. Anse Volbert is one of the resort areas found on the island; there's a great number of hotels and restaurants dotting the shore.

6

Silhouette Island

Famed for its rich bio-diversity, Silhouette Island is set within a marine park; this is one of the two islands gifted with a misty rain forest. The third-largest granitic island, Silhouette Island has a rugged landscape which is what preserves its natural beauty. The park is nurturing to wildlife; there are nearly 2000 species living here on the island; geckos, turtles, skinks and birds are among them. The island offers snorkelling excursions, and the caves found inland are great for exploring. Above all, the island is known for its flora and fauna; snails, slugs, carnivorous pitcher plants and coco de palms are harboured here.

7

Bird Island

The island invites migratory sooty terns. During the breeding season – May to October – the number of visiting birds goes up to 1,500,000. There are raised platforms that bring you beautiful views, and you can also take pictures. Cardinals, crested terns, doves and noddy terns are among the bird species that find the island agreeable.
