Highlights of the Seychelles

The Seychelles is one of those places in the world, which refuses to give up its serene appeal and god-gifted natural beauty to the ravages of unplanned commercialism. It’s true that the world has largely woken up to the myriad charms of the Seychelles and lots of resorts have spawned here but the destination is far from becoming a noisy run of the mill tourist destination, yet. So, come let’s explore some of the most delightful charms of this beautiful destination.

 

Anse Intendance

Situated on the south coast of the island, this secluded little sand crescent is one of the most picturesque beaches in Mahé. This palm fringed beach is also a popular surfing spot due to its frequent huge wild waves. Swimmers should be careful of the southeast trade winds as there is no protective reef.

 

Baie Lazare

Named after Lazare Picault, a famous 18th century Frenchman, the village of Baie Lazare boasts many luxury beach resorts. One of the main attractions here is the neo-Gothic Baie Lazare Church, dedicated to St. Francis of Assisi. This place offers terrific views of the panoramic surroundings.

 

Anse Volbert

Anse Volbert, also called Côte d’Or is situated on the northeast coast of Praslin and remains one of the most popular beaches on the island. Balmy shallow waters gently lap the sun-drenched sands. The calm sea makes the beach an ideal spot for families with small kids. There are lots of hotels and restaurants here.

 

Morne Seychellois National Park

This is the largest national park in the Seychelles. After all, it spans more than 20 percent of the total area of Mahé. Follow one of the scenic hiking trails to the park from the village of Danzil and feast your eyes upon lush tea gardens, rugged mountain slopes, and the verdant woodlands.

 

Vallée de Mai National Park

This UNESCO World Heritage Site is famed for its prehistoric forest, which is home to at least 4,000 types of the endemic giant coco de mer fruit palm as well as splayed traveler’s palm, vanilla orchids, Chinese fans, latanier, and palmiste. Numerous species of rare birds also call the park home, including Black Parrot, the national bird of the Seychelles.

 

Victoria

Victoria, the small capital of the Seychelles was so named to honour the British queen. It is the country’s only seaport and home to the celebrated Seychelles National Botanical Gardens. The gardens were established almost 100 years ago and abound with a rich Flora and Fauna life, including giant tortoises and flying foxes.
