While this archipelago of islands may be small in contrast to others, the beauty is overflowing. With plenty of beach to bliss out on, adventurous things to do, and delicious fresh mixes of cuisines from around the world, the Seychelles is a nothing short of a fabulous spot for anyone needing an island getaway. Here are some ways to enjoy your time here.
Mahe will certainly be one of the islands you will find yourself on being that it’s the largest of them all. There are many fine beaches here for relaxing, but Anse Major in the northwest corner seems to be one of the favorites among visitors. Unless you get here on foot or by boat, you won’t be able to enjoy its beauty. Weathered granite rocks and boulders, white sand beaches, and fantastic marine life to snorkel with makes this beach an attractive choice when needing some sand and sun in your life. When you’re done swimming around, taking shelter under a shady palm will be well deserved.
For more pristine beaches, the island of La Digue is a fine choice, not that you can really go wrong with the beaches on these patches of paradise. Here you enjoy beaching bumming like on any other beach with white sands and turquoise waters to look out at. But if you’re in the mood for some swimming, the serene and calm waters here are perfectly safe for a nice dip. Grab your snorkel to explore the excellent reefs beneath your feet, or get your diving gear on to get a better and deeper look down below. You can take a boat out and explore the surroundings, go fishing, or for a bit of a break from being on the water all day, take a sunset horseback riding ride. The bird sanctuary is another spot to enjoy watching the native animals flock around the Indian almond trees (badamie) and there are even some rare and endangered birds like the black paradise flycatcher.
If you love the beach, but are ready for something adventurous a bit more inland, just get your hiking boots on and take yourself up into the tropical lush green rainforest. The Morne Seychellois National Park has trails that usually take around a half day to enjoy. There are cool creatures to keep an eye open for like the frogs seeking shelter in the pitcher plants or the harmless wolf snake. The top of Morne Blanc offers some spectacular views of the vast Indian Ocean and only takes under an hour to get to. With all the offers on Seychelles holidays, nearly anyone can consider this destination obtainable.
After all the adventuring on the island, one is surely to work up an appetite. The Seychelles is a great spot for some extra fine foods and yummy cuisines. With a nice array of cultures and fares it easy to find something to please your palate. A fusion of Chinese, Indian, African, and French foods can be enjoyed here, and the seafood options, being that you’re on a small island, is of course second to none. You might even catch a glimpse of your dinner coming fresh off the boat.
