Seychelles Travel Guide

Around 1,000 miles east of mainland Africa and scattered across the vast Indian Ocean, Seychelles is a land of perpetual summer. White-sand beaches, lofty granite boulders, palm-fringed forests, and azure waters are the ethos of Seychelles tourism. The 115-island archipelago is extraordinarily picturesque with a diverse array of wildlife and an amalgamation of Asian and African cultures.

History of Seychelles

Though in 1502, the Portuguese explorer, Vasco Da Gama sighted the island of Seychelles; it’s in 1609 that it got inhabited by the Britishers. However, in 1756, the archipelago was officially annexed to France. In 1814, Britishers gained control over the place, though the slavery got abolished later in 1834. And, after the establishment of a coalition government in 1976, the Seychelles embraced a democratic system in the year of 1993.

Take a tour to the island of Cerfs neighbouring Mahe, and dig into its rich history for a wonderful experience.   

Language of Seychelles

With deportees from France in the 19th century, and inhabitants coming from Asian countries, including China, India, and Malay later, this place has embraced many cultures. The mother language of the Seychelles is Creole, also called Seselwa. However, French and English are also recognised amongst the main languages.

Honeymoon in Seychelles

Praslin Island, Silhouette Island, Cousin Island, and La Digue Island are some of the top honeymoon destinations in Seychelles. With a dreamlike landscape, it's not surprising that the newlyweds and those seeking a tropical getaway prefer visiting Seychelles. Owing to its rich wildlife both island and underwater, Seychelles is dubbed as “The Galàpagos of the Indian Ocean.” Spotting sea turtles on Bird Island's sandy beaches, giant Aldabra tortoises roaming on Curieuse, seagulls on Aride Island, the Seychelles Black Parrot in Praslin’s Vallée de Mai are some of the best wildlife watching experiences. Select a suitable package from our list of Seychelles honeymoon packages to make your trip memorable.


Top Beaches in Seychelles

 

Picking one of the best beaches from a Seychelles tour guide is like picking a flavor of ice cream. The world-famous Anse Source d'Argent, remote Anse Marron, glamorous Anse Takamaka, and scenic Anse Lazio are some of the best beaches in Seychelles. Cherish some relaxing moments or enjoy a date with your partner while exploring the splendid beaches here, for there is no dearth of beaches to be felt overcrowded.

 

 

Main festivals of Seychelles

Take a break from beachcombing, and explore the capital city of Victoria that harbors stunning architecture, open-air markets, history museums, and a thriving nightlife scene. Kreol Festival in October is the best event to learn about local Creole culture and enjoy week long celebrations. Besides that, you can also witness the celebration of Independence Day, La Digue Festival, SUBIOS Underwater Festival and many more.

 

 

Water sports in Seychelles:

For exploring shipwrecks and corals, diving and snorkeling are the most popular beach activities in Seychelles. The ocean is always warm and safe, and teeming with marine life from tortoises to whale sharks. October and November are ideal months for water sports like scuba diving, snorkeling, and swimming. Whether a family trip or a honeymoon in Seychelles, watersports make your tropical vacation special.

 

Pick up a Seychelles travel guide and visit splendid beaches, enjoy water sports, climb mountains, learn local customs, taste fresh tropical fruits, and watch idyllic sunsets. Beyond the luxury resorts and buzzing capital city, this tropical destination is home to some of the world's best-preserved wildlife habitats.

How to Reach Seychelles

Read about the best & quickest routes to save time & money, as suggested by our travelers

By Air

Seychelles has two major airports: Seychelles International Airport (SEZ) in Victoria and Praslin Island Airport. Seychelles International Airport is the primary point of entry for international travelers. The airport is located in Victoria, the capital city of Seychelles, which is situated on the northeastern side of Mahé Island. It is the hub of Air Seychelles, the national airline. The airport is served by international airlines such as British Airways, Austrian Airlines, Emirates, Kenya Airways, and Turkish Airlines. Long-haul scheduled flights to major destinations in Asia, Europe, and the Middle East are available from this airport.

 

Another major airport in Seychelles, Praslin Island Airport is currently served by Air Seychelles. The airport operates scheduled flights to Mahé and charter planes to the other islands. Zil Air provides helicopter flights to most of the inner and outer islands.

By Road

Around 400 kilometers of paved road network connects the islands in Seychelles. The road network is poor outside major urban areas. Renting a car from the airport or the hotel is a great way to go on sightseeing in Seychelles, especially on Mahé Island. Due to lack of proper public transport in Seychelles, traveling by car allows travelers to visit and spend time at attractions by their own choice. Bike rentals are also available in downtown Victoria.

 

Seychelles Public Transport Corporation (SPTC) operates daily buses on Mahé and Praslin Islands from morning to evening. In rural areas, especially on La Digue Island, ox-carts are a popular way of public transport.

By Sea

 

The main seaport in Seychelles is Victoria. Cat Cocos and Inter Island ferry run regular catamaran ferries between Mahé and Praslin Island. Ferries are available on designated time at 15 minutes of interval. Ferries to smaller islands can also be arranged, but it is less reliable.

    • Trip to Seychelles

      I went to Seycheles for my honeymoon. Booking was done through HolidayBox, the experience was really awesome from the initiation. My contact person was Meghana from HolidayBox and she was outstanding at her job. She made the itinerary as asked and help us know about the place too. She had booked Colibri and Avani for us and both the properties were amazing. I would recommend people to stay at these places given a chance, only shortcoming of Colibri is there's no room service. Meghana helped us with a fair idea of which places to visit and as an add on we got coupons of restaurants and water sports. In a nutshell our trip was really memorable, a big cheers to Holidaybox and especially Meghana . Would like to mention Traveltriangle agents Suresh who was always there helping with any doubts i had and with the quality of agents they have. I would really book my next trip through them.

      Trip was amazingly planned. I appreciate Eti Saxena for planning it so well. We did not have to think about anything. From starting of the trip till the end everything was well planned. Will definitely recommend to others. Cost was reasonable. We missed the bus for a day outing, we thought our money is wasted since everything is prepaid but it was re scheduled as per next availability.

      Holidays Box and 7° South along with Travel Triangle made it the most memorable trip of our lives. Tanya from Holidays Box gets a special mention here for her amazing attitude and easy approachability. She was very accommodating of all my requests and was in touch through out our trip. Kudos!! Driving in Praslin by the beaches where there were mountains on one side and the clearest blue ocean on the other will always remain in my heart. The view from the top of the hill near the TV tower is unbelievable. Crystal water kayaks in la digue at the L'Union Estates gave us a VIP tour of the corals, mantas, Robinson Crusoe beach with breathtaking views of the shoreline. Cycling in La Digue with the mesmerizing ocean breeze hitting our bodies was one beautiful experience.

    FAQ's of Seychelles

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    The weather in December is fairly cloudy at times and rainfall is pretty common due to the Northwest Monsoon. So, if you're looking for a sunny holiday in December, Seychelles weather is not ideal.

    Seychelles is a politically stable country. The islands are located outside of cyclone belt so there is no urgent threat of thunderstorms. Avoid going outdoors or to remote islands when the rainfall is incessant. 

    Seychelles is a luxury holiday destination so, most accommodations are available in form of high-end resorts and beach resorts. However, guesthouses and lodges are available in Mahe and Praslin Islands.
