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.

Garvita's 7 days trip to SeychellesSince 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.
Karan's 7 days trip to SeychellesOverall good experience. Our Agent delivered exactly what is written in plan. only thing i dint like is Coral Strand Hotel. Rooms are extremely small. and water was sipping into room from Bathrooom. Thought hotel is on beach side. So want to give you update for your records. Otherwise beutiful country and Travel triangle deliverd as expected.
Paras's 5 days trip to SeychellesGaurav and nikita (dream travels) were amazing they planned our trip very well .The coordination between indian and Seychelles is amazing Everything was arranged beautifully and on time
Jaskaran's 7 days trip to SeychellesReally well managed tour. Holidaybox was very responsive and helpful.
Akash's 6 days trip to SeychellesTrip was ok ok, it was like school trip more than honeymoon trip.Driver always gave instruction not to go there come on time you have 10min only like that.Other side we waited for more than 1 hour for cab during north tour. It was pathetic experience. North tour was waste of time and money nothing to explore in north tour. Last day of tour they asked to do water activity on beach and then took us to another island, on that island also same activity was available and with cheaper rate. They suggested to shop in south tour but which was costly than other shops. Please change your tour agent.
Amritkeshav's 5 days trip to SeychellesI would like to thank Holiday Box and especially Gurleen for being such an amazing Travel agent. She helped us with all are doubts and was approachable whenever we needed her help. We went for honeymoon to Mauritius and everything was well organised. I would recommend everyone to give Holiday box the opportunity to make their holiday memorable. Our hotel stay in Intercontinental, Balaclava.
Avnish's 4 days trip to SeychellesA big THANK YOU to Holiday Box for the amazing arrangements for the trip. Everything right from Bookings, Airport Transfers, Check-In/Check-Out were really smooth. Holiday Box also arranged one Contact person in Seychelles for any assistance, though we didn't need any. All the activities we opted were planned perfectly to enhance the trip experience. Especial shout-out to Mr. Kunal who did all the arrangements. He was available 24x7 (before and during the trip) to resolve queries regarding anything and everything about the trip. Will definitely recommend Holiday Box to everyone who are planning to visit Seychelles.
Amal's 7 days trip to SeychellesI enquired with Travel Triangle for my trip to Seychelles and I must say, it was a pleasant experience. They were constantly following up and subsequently got me a good package. I chose to go ahead with "A Bit Off Beat Holidays" and the experience was equally great. I got appropriate support and guidance throughout the trip. Thanks to Ashok from TT and Umesh & Sunita from A Bit Off Beat Holidays, my trip was hassle free and fab. Good job guys! Note for the ppl travelling to Seychelles: I chose to stay at Oasis Hotel Restaurant & Spa in Praslin but it was a wrong decision. It looks great from outside and from the images, however, the service and food weren't upto par. Only regret in the entire trip On the other hand, Coral Strand Hotel in Mahe was absolutely great. These are my inputs for your trip to Seychelles.
Mahaveer's 6 days trip to SeychellesVery well organised trip by Redletter Holidays ...full marks to them!!!!!
Chirag's 6 days trip to SeychellesThe trip was amazing and Holiday Box played crucial role in making it. Holiday Box, especially Palak, was responsive and able to very well manage contingencies during the trip. Holiday box was transparent in all the communications and gave us exactly what was promised. Would certainly recommend Holiday Box to friends and family.

FAQ's of Seychelles

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.
