Best beaches anywhere in the world, no touts or anyone pestering you to buy, most friendly people, a great place to unwind and relax.
We used public transport, buses, to travel all over the island with no problems whatsoever.
We only stayed on Mahe Island and drove around the whole Island. It was beautiful with gorgeous beaches and forest like scenary.
If you decide to stay on the main island then a visit to see the Bat man studio is a must, a guy has a pet fox bat, you can feed it and it will sit on your shoulder.
So cute. Doesn't cost anything, we just gave him 100 rupees. It's on the way to Anse major beach if you talk the walking trek from Bel Ombré
Great beaches, great environment and surroundings like the tropical rain forests and mountain range. Must visit La Dugie island and send the day there cycling especially with the family as children would love it.
The Seychelles islands are amazing. Such great landscape. And I love how the it has both a big and small feel.
You see the mountains and their majesty, the exquisite beaches, then meet with the very personable and friendly people. I would love to go back.
Expensive but beautiful sums it up. It has a lot of "hotels", which could include someone's house. There was no tourist information at the airport.
I found an information desk, but they couldn't even offer me a map or a public phone to call from. There is no free or cheap wifi or internet available, in case you were wondering. There is no food available when you're in Duty free. I paid $10 for a coffee and a "burger", which doesn't even describe what I actually got. So be sure to eat before you get to the airport. I'm sure the rest of the island is beautiful. Just make sure everything is organized BEFORE you're there, since you can't do much once you arrive.
The most intersting thing is ocean and beautiful beaches. The weakest is shops and fresh food. It`s tought to find it.
So be ready to go slim)
Some places in the world you go to for the food, some places for the culture/people, and other places for the landscape - this one is mainly the landscape.
When traveling to the seychelles you are best to take English sterling money and change to seychelles rupees when you get there.
Read up on the place before you arrive as there is loads to see. Always ask a taxi driver the price before you get in. The locals are very friendly. When staying in mahe you are best to hire a car.
Tourist trap, beautiful beaches but not city center and no food. The locals were drugged out barefoot in the bushes.
. kills the 5 star hotel ambiance. Far too expensive, you even have to pay $25 bucks per person to go to the world famous beach. Food is gross, threw my burger on the flood and starved cats next to me didn't even eat the meat.
Il clima estremamente caldo-umido delle Seychelles toglie la voglia di fare qualsiasi attivita' che non sia in ambiente con aria condizionata - l'acqua del mare e' calda (troppo) e a volte non e' di nessun aiuto per rinfrescarsi dall'umidita' e calura.
Non esiste nessun tipo di divertimento/vita notturna o svago: al calare della sera tutto e' ''morto'' (incluso l'illuminazione pubblica) - i supermercati/negozi seguono orari molto ridotti, chiudono nei fine-settimana e durante le feste nazionali - la dispinibilita' di merce e' ridotta e molto spesso i banchi sono vuoti. In conclusione, al di la' della natura (mare - spiagge - rocce - vegetazione) poco altro: in genere rapporto qualita'/prezzo di hotel/resort inaccettabile - ristorazione di livello indecente.
great sea and beach, poor food, expensive, less tourist facilities such as restaurant, shopping area, night life, good islands for relaxing
Not very good place for tourists..nature is amazing..other than that nothing else..the money you spend does not worth at all.
.it is quite expensive to get this level off service and offer.
Amazing!! Most relaxing place I've ever been to with such nice people. Seychelles Vs Maldives ? Seychelles wins!
The most we liked la Digues Island, than Praslin Island, and than Mahe Island. Digues island is the smallest, there are no cars, just bycicles, and the nature is wild.
The beaches are great, the weather also.
I liked the island the view of the ocean was amazing but the weather was so hot but it was fine we spent the time at the beach and the pool
My favourite holiday destination. Have just returned for the 2nd time this year. We Traveled in June and the weather was great.
We've just returned November 7th and it rained 5 days out of 10.Check weather records before you book. We've now visited 4 islands and each one of them is different. My personal favourite is Praslin Island.My favourite hotel Raffles, sheer luxury! My favourite beach is on Mahe,it is Baie Lasare,Heaven on earth!
Beautiful islands and friendly people. I would recommend you visit several islands on one trip. My advice would be Mahe,Praslin and La Digue.
If you have any time left try to stay on one of the quieter islands. We chose Silhouette and had a great time.
Beautiful beaches, big waves and very tasty pizza! Very natural place with a lot of endemics on the island.
Beau wallon! Thats were most of the tourist go - eventhoug it never is crowded on the beach. "Private" beaches are all over - but be sure to bring food, because the shops open late and close early - on sundays the are closed the whole day.
The food is nothing to write abou. The taximis expensive. Busses go all over - could be scary though, the drive fast and the roads are tiny. The coast is flat, 5 rupee! Enjoy your stay, but travel if you dont need much action. Everywhere you go it is quiet.
Nice place to visit for beach and sun but honestly speaking too expensive you get better bang for you buck in Zanzibar.
the take away local food is very tasty better an cheaper comparatively. beaches are very clean an amazing views all over the island.
It is a natural paradise. If you are the type of person to walk in the nature etc this is the perfect place.
Dont miss to visit the waterfall (open just sunday) and the beautiful beaches near by
The weather was very windy and it was overcast most of the time (July). Overpriced and overrated!!!!
Seychelles Islands were very nice! The people were very friendly, the islands felt safe.....everyone spoke english.
The island are clean, the beaches are nice in the winter, but I imagine they must be absolutely gorgeous at the right time of the year, when it's not raining, cloudy or windy. The color of the water is very beautiful and must be even more gorgeous when the sun is shining. I recommend you go around and visit multiple islands and enjoy the beaches and water sports. The food is great, very nice seafood!
A fantastic holiday spot that can be done many times over and never get bored. Has everything you can want on a holiday and a whole lot more.
Very nice paradise like unique islands. Great to relax and perfect for honeymooners. Hotels are excellent.
Beaches are awesome and you always find a spot where you are just alone. Prices are mostly expensive. So it's not cheap holidays. If you want it quiet and want to relax it's perfect. If you search nigtlife action and shoping, then it's less interesting.
One off the most Beautifully holiday destination in the world if you like hiking in tropical forest/diving or swimming and 5star accommodation.
People: Everyone in the island was incredibly friendly and always helpful whenever we needed help. Beaches: For sure, Seychelles has one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
Food: Creole food among others, there is a lot of tasty food and drinks. We surely got a good combination of relaxation, good sightseeing, great food accompanied by friendly people.
