What to see in Seychelles

Seychelles Attractions


Almost half of the total land area of the Seychelles is protected and most of its islands are part of marine sanctuaries, which goes some way to explaining why the archipelago is so pristinely well-preserved. Naturally, Seychelles is a dream destination for aquatic pursuits like diving, snorkelling, sailing and fishing, but visitors will also find that the virgin jungles and granite peaks provide a playground for hikers, bird-watchers and rock climbers.

The islands of Mahé, Praslin and La Digue are the most developed for tourists, with many luxury hotels, some cultural attractions, and myriad activities on offer. Here travellers will find stunning beaches, the Morne Seychellois National Park, and the UNESCO-listed Vallee de Mai.

Keen fishermen should head to Desroche Island, Alphonse Island and Farquhar Atoll, while surfers will love Anse Intendance. Some of the best islands for birders include the aptly named Bird Island, the Aride Island Nature Reserve and Cousin Island. Nature lovers will also relish the wildlife on Curieuse Island, Silhouette Island, and the UNESCO-listed Aldabra Atoll, to name just a few.
