Discover biodiversity in North Island

North Island is regarded as one of Seychelles' most fertile islands and has a rich biodiversity. Its 5-star luxury eco-tourism resort not only offers high standards of barefoot luxury, but also plans to re-introduce endangered flora and fauna on to the island to help preserve some of Seychelles’ precious endemic species.

Do not miss Mahe

With a backdrop of towering granite peaks, Mahe’s landscape is a treasure trove of unique flora that has evolved over centuries of isolation. A leisurely tour of the island by car will take about half a day and reveal a wealth of attractions as well as the cultural diversity of its people – descendants from Africa, India, China and Europe.

Go back in time to La Digue

One of the most charming islands in the Seychelles, La Digue has a relaxed way of life where ox-cart traditional transport is still used today. With a rich biodiversity, the island is home to the black paradise flycatcher, one of the world’s rarest birds and a number of beautiful beaches with long stretches of white sand, turquoise blue lagoons and stunning granite boulders.

Explore the capital of Victoria

Originally settled in 1778 by the French, the capital was eventually named after Queen Victoria. At the centre is the focal point of the city – a clock tower, a copy of the Little Ben outside Victoria station in London. Walk the narrow streets of the old town to see colonial buildings, Anglican and Roman Catholic cathedrals and the impressive Capuchin House. Visit the National History Museum, explore tropical gardens and go to the lively morning market where the stalls are stacked with tropical fruits, spices and freshly caught fish.

Visit the Valle de Mai

The main attraction of Praslin is the Vallee de Mai, a Unesco world heritage site that is home to a prehistoric rainforest of huge trees that dominate the landscape. The vegetation here is so different that it was once believed to be the original site of the Garden of Eden. The 8000-year-old coral reefs are populated by fantastically coloured fish, and attract fans of the underwater world. Meanwhile, large granite formations decorate almost every beach on the island. Walking trails lead to a beautiful waterfall and sheltered viewpoints that look over the valley.
