Laze on the beaches of the 'Isle of Abundance' or climb the dramatic cliffs which soar above the ancient forests.
All flights arrive into Mahé, the hub of the Seychelles. Make is home to 90% of the Seychellois people. In contrast to the pared down lifestyle of the smaller islands, Mahé could almost be described as bustling. It even has nightlife of sorts.
There are more than 70 beaches to choose from. But Mahé is the ideal island for the active, as water sports and dive centres, game fishing and inland excursions are all on offer.
You can even hire a car for a day or two and explore the island. Explore the beautiful Botanical Gardens, meander along the forest-covered mountain roads and visit one of the many vanilla and spice farms. The tiny capital of Victoria is worth exploring for a morning. You can visit the local markets, shopping for handicrafts in the attractive boulevard shops. And finish it off with a seafood lunch.
In a few days on Mahé you can visit the Botanical Gardens, take a nature trail in the mountains, go diving or simply laze on one of the 70 beaches! Morne Seychellois National Park covers almost 20% of the whole island and offers some stunning hiking trails.
