Ste Anne National Park (Mahe Island)

Sainte Anne Marine National Park encompasses eight small islands in the Indian Ocean. Sainte Anne Island and Cerf Island are two of the largest islands in the park. Round Island used to be a leper colony, and today it’s a popular diving site. Moyenne Island was owned privately and now it’s a nature reserve. Long Island, Ile Cachée, Île Seche, and Harrison Rock are other islands in Sainte Anne Marine National Park.

Features and Nearby Attractions

The park features granitic islands where green and hawksbill turtles, as well as bottlenose dolphins, are found. There are Creole restaurants on Moyenne and Cerf islands and a number of gourmet restaurants on Sainte Anne Island.

Location

Roughly 20 minutes from Victoria harbor by slow boat, the national park is located in the Mont Fleuri district near the capital city of Victoria in Seychelles. Both private boats and shared ferries offer transport to reach the park.

History of Sainte Anne Marine National Park

The area of the park was a private property before it was declared a nature reserve. This marine national park in Seychelles was created in 1973 for wildlife conservation. First of its kind in the Indian Ocean, this marine national park covers a total area of 14.45 square kilometers and a land area of 3.9 square km.

Activities in Sainte Anne Marine National Park

The Sainte Anne Marine National Park is a vital part of the natural and cultural heritage of Seychellois. The islands are one of the major tourist attractions in Seychelles for scuba diving, glass bottom boat excursions, fish feeding, and snorkeling among the coral reefs. Day tours to this park are regularly organized for tourists looking for some fun under the sun.

The lively underwater world attracts tourists from all over the world to encounter magnificent coral gardens, reef sharks, and tropical fish. Scuba diving in Sainte Anne Marine National Park can be enjoyed throughout the year. Local tour operators offer regular day trips to the park from Victoria.

Attractions in Sainte Anne Marine National Park

With an area of 2.27 sq. km, Sainte Anne Island is the largest of eight islands. It features a large luxury resort named Sainte Anne Island Resort. The island has 6 big beaches: Grande Anse, Anse Royale, Anse Tortues, Anse Cimitiere, Anse Manon, and Anse Cabot. Activities such as snorkelling, parasailing, and surfing can be enjoyed at the beaches. Taking a boat tour of these beaches is another fun way to explore the park.

A few of these beaches are popular resting sites for sea turtles between November and February while other beaches are accessible only via foot. The highest point on Sainte Anne Island is 246 meters.

Second largest in size, Cerf Island has three luxury hotels: Cerf Island Marine Park Resort, Fairy Tern Chalets, and L'Habitation. The island also has an art gallery, chapels, and a cemetery. The calm and shallow waters around Cerf Island are an amazing sight to behold. The deepest point of the Marine Park is 250 meters. There are more than 150 species of marine species such as reef fish, crabs, sea urchins, and starfish in the national park.

    Trip was good. We stayed at good hotels and got good services. The optional tour we had were nicely managed. The travel agent of ours Thousand miles was lil less responsive. We asked for honeymoon cake but we didn't get, on regular follow ups the agent seems to didnt care. When we reached airport there was no one to pick up and we have to manage and call the local agent, after long wait they came.

    Shikhar's 5 days trip to Seychelles

    First of all we went to Bali. The experience was good. But, you should understand the preferences of the travellers. As, we were expecting more time at beach in Bali but didn't get any of it as such. Secondly, It was a honeymoon package and who would like to visit all the temples that are there in Bali.. Please, in future don't look for your own profit. People take help from you, as they are not aware of the location.

    Garvita's 7 days trip to Seychelles

    Since the beginning we wanted to go somewhere less crowded but beachy. So, we decided to go to Seychelles. Now comes the most difficult part- trusting someone to plan your honeymoon but there I'm so glad that I chose travel triangle for that. Palak was always available to solve my queries from the beginning and gave me the best resorts of Seychelles. Providing all the tips from what to carry and what not to carry and different excursions happening in Seychelles. She was also concerned about our trip when we were in Seychelles. Thankyou so much for making our honeymoon a hit. The best memory we have was of the Enchanted resort at round island. The best suggestion by Palak. It was full of serenity. One more thing I would like to add is the creole services booked in Seychelles were the best. The cab drivers were always on time and the agents were helpful too. Thankyou for choosing them.

Otherwise beutiful country and Travel triangle deliverd as expected.
