10 Top Things to Do in Seychelles
From diving with whale sharks to having a romantic dinner at dusk on the beach, there are plenty of things to do in Seychelles. The island offers a range of outdoor and indoor delights to travelers.
Victoria on Mahé Island has a cluster of roads built around Creole-style houses. Take a selfie with the Little Ben clock tower, a silver-painted replica London’s Big Ben, which arrived here on Mahé in 1903. Don’t forget to taste the green vegetables, local spices, and fish in the Sir Selwyn Selwyn Clarke Market. No vacation to Victoria is complete without a stroll through this covered market which may be small by African standards but is just as bustling as a Moroccan souk. Once the sun is set, going for clubbing in downtown Victoria is the best things to do in Seychelles at night. Visitors to La Digue Island can see an ox-pulled oil extraction machine, the cemetery of the first settlers, and one of the world’s most beautiful stretches of sand at Anse Source D’Argent. Besides beaches and markets, exploring museums and historical landmarks are popular things to do in Mahe Seychelles.
Exploring forest trails is also one of the best things to do in Seychelles. The 90-minute Copolia Trail curls through cinnamon and rubber tree forest before climbing higher to exposed “glacis” rock. To enjoy adventurous things to do in Seychelles, the Morne Blanc walking trail starts near the tea plantation in north-central Mahé. At the end of the trail, hikers can enjoy views over the Port Launay Marine Park.
Two of Seychelles’ most attractive beaches are on Praslin Island Anse Lazio and Anse Georgette. A sumptuous stretch of white sand, Anse Georgette is surrounded by the characteristic granite boulders. More adventurous travelers can take the coastal path to Anse Lazio. This beach is a longer stretch of glorious sand and with more powerful waves. Water sports like snorkeling, surfing, scuba diving, glass bottom rides, and paddle boarding are popular things to do in Seychelles on honeymoon.
One of the popular things to do in the Seychelles islands is to walk in the Vallée de Mai. The region is a UNESCO World Heritage Site where the clusters of 4,000 coco de mer palm trees are found. Get away from classic tourist traps like beaches and discover the inner islands instead. On Curieuse Island, travelers can spend time with some of the biggest tortoises on the planet. Take a memorable shower near waterfalls such as Sauzier waterfall and the waterfall at Morne Seychellois National Park.
To get a bird’s eye view of the scenic islands, plan a day trip to climb the 905-meter tall Morne Blanc, the highest summit in Seychelles. If budget is not a constraint, enjoy helicopter flights with your better half or family to see the entire archipelago scattered in the Indian Ocean. Hire a private boat to discover the beauty of the outer islands and atolls. Fishing is a great pastime here and anglers can find exclusive lodges at Desroche Island, Alphonse Island, and Farquhar Atoll.

The trip was really awesome and very well organized. We never faced any issues. The hotel stay at Praslin and Mahe were really comfortable. All the transfers were really very smooth. Superb Indian Food as well .The most memorable thing was the sunset Cruise which we can never forget, What a view My God!!! overall the trip was awesome and would definitely recommend Holidays box if you are planning for Seychelles. Looking forward for more trips with Holiday Box. Sunset Cruise was one of the memorable thing
Trip to SeychellesI 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 to SeychellesVery pleasant experience overall @ Maldives. There was initial issue with Full Board/half Board - however, that was sorted out quickly by the team. Rest of the stay was blissfully peaceful
Trip to SeychellesTrip 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.
Trip to SeychellesWe have an amazing trip planned by Vishal from Eji Travels. All the bookings were perfect and everything was as per our request and expectation.
Trip to SeychellesPraslin hotel was pathetic, rest of the trip was good Beachside time spent in hotel

Trip to SeychellesAll good. Strongly recommend to use their services. I will use in future for sure.
Trip to SeychellesHolidays 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.
Trip to SeychellesSuperb location for your honeymoon, definitely recommended. Oasis resort praslin not having beach access, and no sea view, whereas berjaya has a better beach side property, and seemed beautifully located in a good location over praslin island... Berjaya mahe of course was beautiful... Special thanks to Mr. Prem Singh Lohar for helping us out immensely in Mahe... Praslin roadtrip...
