Top 10 Things to do in Victoria, Seychelles

August 1, 2017 Terina Blouin

A day on foot is ample time to see Victoria, one of the smallest capitals in the world. Located on Mahe, one of the Seychelles' 115 granite and coral islands, Victoria is the republic's business and cultural hub. At its center sits the Victoria Clocktower, a national monument reminiscent of London's "Big Ben" that has kept ticking since 1903, unaffected by the modern glass and concrete development around it. Visit the local art galleries and craft markets to soak up the city's friendly charm.

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!

Gerry and team know the fishing spots around Conception Island like the back of his hand. We always have had a decent catch when going out with him. Boat and tackle are in great condition. The beach BBQ absolutely fantastic.
No problem with younger children, so long as the ocean is calm enough for them to handle. My daughter (7) caught her first Wahoo with Gerry and my son (6) also landed a nice bonito.
Definitely worth it. Again again and again!!

Spiaggia di Port Launay

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.

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.

Mission Lodge Lookout

Reviewed By BobWE - Manhattan Beach, CA

Not much to see of structures except the remains of buildings that existed during the slave period of Seychelles. What is worth the twisting and steep highway journey to the top is the view of the valley below and the Mountains surrounding the . There are even a gazebo and a number of 3 person benches to sit on to take in the view southward across Mahe. Queen Elizabeth II was reported to have enjoyed a cup of tea from the vista point.

My dive centre of choice which I always recommend and bring visitors to should they wish to dive. An excellent few days diving with a friend from UK. Despite being very busy on nearly all occasions, the staff are helpful, friendly and thoroughly professional in all aspects of their operations. I have no hesitation in recommending any diver to come to this Dive Centre - you should not be disappointed.

WE spent 2 hours here. It was very pleasant. Theres not a lot to do in Victoria so we though why not? You have to pay in cash only so beware. There is adequate parking. there were 2 sets of toilets, flat paving mostly so you could take a pram inside and a little café which was open when we visited

Seychelles Public Transport Corporation

Reviewed By Stellan D - Bromma, Sweden

The buses are a very cheap (5SR/sector) way to travel compared to the expensive taxis. The rides on the winding rooads can be quite exiting. Some buses are a little overcrowed and then you will have to stand. The drivers sometimes cheat the company by taking your money but not giving you a receipt which locals always get.
