Mahe Island holidays

Mahe Island, with an area of 150 square kilometres, is the largest island of the Seychelles. It is the international gateway to the Seychelles and is home to ‘Africa’s Smallest Capital’ Victoria. Victoria’s most famous landmark is a mini replica of Big Ben, which was unveiled in 1901 to commemorate the Seychelles becoming a crown colony in its own right, separate from Mauritius. There are many great drives around the island, as the roads cut across and through the mountains, offering some wonderful panoramic views and for walkers and nature lovers a visit to the Morne Seychellois Park is a must. Covering an area of 3,045 hectares (one fifth of Mahe) it has many different trails that can be explored on half or full day excursions.
