Paradise calling: fun things to do in Seychelles - A true tropical escape!

Seychelles is popular for its immaculate beaches. The islands' warm, white coastlines are peppered with massive boulders which are framed by the great Indian Ocean. Its beauty is often featured on postcards and magazine ads. Let's take a quick look at the fun things to do when in Seychelles!


The Anse Lazio in Praslin

Anse Lazio (also known as Chevalier Bay) is among the most scenic beaches in Seychelles. It is situated on the northern shore of Praslin Island. To get to this beach, you must walk up a slope, but it is still well worth the effort. The best thing about Seychellois beaches, that you might not witness elsewhere, is that even the most popular ones are barely crowded! This long strip of smooth blond beach, surrounded by curved granite boulders, integrates with the crystal-clear waters in dreamlike shades of blue. Takamaka as well as coconut palms line this beach, offering cover for sunbathing.


The Anse Intendance in Mahé

This tiny beach and its secluded crescent-shaped sandbanks on the south coast of this island is a top surfing spot in the country. This is mostly thanks to the wild waves and big swells which makes it a favourite spot among the surfers! However, swimming is quite rough here as there is a lack of a protective reef barrier. However, the photographers, beachcombers and sunbathers will enjoy the picturesque sceneries here! And if you would like to book beachfront Seychelles resorts, then make sure to check properties like Anantara Maia Seychelles Villas.


The Baie Lazare in Mahé

This pretty village in Mahe was named after a French explorer of the 18th century called Lazare Picault. He came here as he was ordered by the French government. He was asked to explore the islands! And there's plenty of reasons as to why you should too!


The La Digue Island

This is the 4th biggest island in this archipelago. This is an island that is a haven for nature lovers. If you would like to bask in beautiful sceneries, you know this is the place to be! If you would like to take a glimpse of the local lifestyle then this is another reason to head over here! Oxcarts and bicycles have become the most popular transport modes! The stunning white sandy beaches and the granite outcrops that line the coast, bring about dramatic views! The beach connoisseurs are going to find this picturesque stretch of white sands and deep blue seas one of a kind! And guess what? Rock climbing and diving are popular activities here!


Curieuse Island Day Trip

This island has become a breeding ground for giant tortoises! They roam independently without any disturbances around the pretty sand coves here! Most of the island has been covered in casuarina and takamaka trees, which make it even more picturesque! The luscious green against a backdrop of emerald blue waters is breathtaking! And the white sand beaches just add to the beauty!
