Experience the Seychelles: what to see, what to do
Made up of 115 different islands, there are so many possibilities to find your own private beach for your holidays in the Seychelles. The beaches are the biggest draw here and you'll find they're spectacular on each and every island.
Essentials in the Seychelles
Curieuse Island: This island is a must for its red sandy earth, towering palms and its tortoises. Once a leper colony, today you can watch the giant tortoises move about, even lay their eggs!
Shark Bank: If you're brave enough to dive with sharks, head north from Mahe with a Seychelles car hire. You're most likely to run into some white tip reef sharks, stingrays and endless types of tropical fish.
Morne Seychellois National Park: Take a break from the beaches and explore the interior! Grab a guide and explore the many walking trails in this national park which covers an impressive 20% of Mahe.
