10 Things to Do in Seychelles That You Shouldn't Miss

July 19, 2017 Marissa Gamble

Sailing, diving, fishing and relaxing are the main activities for visitors to the 155 islands of this Indian Ocean archipelago. Mahé, Praslin and La Digue are the most popular islands. Mahé boasts 65 silver beaches, plus an array of restaurants, cafés, bars and casinos in the tiny capital, Victoria. The Seychelles are home to UNESCO-designated sites, coral atoll Aldabra and Vallée de Mai, called the Garden of Eden. Creole is the main language, but English and French are widely spoken.

The tour to Anse Marron is A MUST DO! I would recommend it to everyone.we took Sunny Trail Guides to get there. Robert is just great.
We contacted him thru email and scheduled a date for the tour.The entire way to Anse Marron was very scenic and with Robert as a guide was even more interesting. He served us delicious fruit plate during our 2 hrs stay at Anse Marron.
The trek was exhausting, but totally worth it.

This small, serene beach is among the most beautiful on Praslin Island.

Beautiful bounty beach. Bring your own towel/chair because there is nothing beside some palms to find shadow. I was told the hotel allows only 25 non-residents to pass the hotelground, so if you are not staying, you have to make a reservation a few days before. To put you on the list. Alternative way is to book a “Robinson Crusoe” trip by catamaran at Creol-travel agency. After snorkeling at St Piere , visiting Curiouse BBQ , they drop you at the beach for 1,5 hr. I saw more catamarans anchoring in front of the beach.(aprox €125 pp. Your hotel can arrange either option.

Petite Anse

Reviewed By Dianne D - South Africa

This is definitely the most beautiful, romantic and relaxing beach to visit in the Seychelles. Park your car near the casino and take the breathtaking walk through exquisite Gardens to reach the beach which is located near the Four Seasons Hotel. Day visitors are allowed. Drinks and snacks are available at the bar and restaurant, but are pretty expensive.

Well maintained trail. Took me (fit senior) 53 minutes walking time.
Climbs up all the way (about 230mtres vertical).. and steps are not consistent - but reasonably well maintained.
Need hiking shoes
Take water, as high perspiration
Shaded most of the way, but need hat on top.
The viewing platform is safe.
Views all along South Island..stunning!

Petite Anse Kerlan

Reviewed By Vidya S - Pune, India

Located within the property of the beautiful Constance Lemuria, this beach is a small hideaway from the mad world outside. Not a touristy beach and mostly hopped around by hotel guests, its private. Proximity to the hotel bar and grill - The Takamaka ensures your drink glasses are full and the experience is wonderful!

Reviewed By DickBurton - Garstang, United Kingdom

Nice enough beach, been twice, both times to anchor in the bay and both times it's been cloudy and wet.
The spire like Mountains behind the bay seem to attract clouds, I've never seen them without their cloudy caps.
It's certainly a pleasant place to spend a few hours.

Anse Lazio

This popular beach boasts beautiful white sand and clear turquoise water; a sheltered cove is ideal for snorkeling.

Reviewed By Virontherun

First, the beach itself is beautiful... like postcard beautiful.
Second, it is not overly crowded. It's far from deserted either... but it is totally bearable.
Third : the snorkel is brilliant. You have to snorkel along the rocks on each side, and you can see tons of fishes !! And quite a lot of alive coral, which is a plus ! I personally saw a turtle and a huge octopus, plus thousands of fishes. And the sea is quite calm compare to plenty of other spots in Seychelles.
Recommended !

Reviewed By juliatraveller2014 - Kiev, Ukraine

The beach itself is very beautiful, you can have free parking near by and walk 1 minute though green jungles. Maybe it depends on weather, but when we visit Anse Intendanse in the beginning of June, there were big waves and sign "no swimming" you barely could come into water because flow is quite strong. But it is worth to come and watch as well as other Beaches on Seychelles.

Copolia Trail

Reviewed By 113alin - London, United Kingdom

The road up to Copolia is very windy. It was quite rainy the first day we tried to get there, so we decided against going. We went the next day.
There is no real parking for the trail, when we went, there were around three cars parked near the start of the trail. No bathroom facilities. We did not see the map of the route before going as we parked further along the road I guess.
The trail is nice, and it can get quite steep. It took as an hour to get to the top as we got lost on the way! We went all the way to the place where there is a left arrow on the board. We turned left, however we did not realise that there is ANOTHER STEEP LEFT TURN that goes directly up!!! Instead we carried on going straight. There was an 'x' marked on the rock, telling people to stop, the 'x' was very faded so we didn't spot it. It was quite dangerous as we tried clambering over rocks, after 10 or so minutes we realised there was no safe way forward! We luckily managed to find our way back, and realised the correct route. The top of the trail is an expansive area where you have a panoramic view over the island, on top of a giant granite flat boulder.
