From the tall palm trees and the famous coconuts « Coco-fesse » to the turquoise blue bays with the white sandy beaches shadowed by the luxuriant takamakas : this is the picture that we have in mind of the Seychelles islands : a real paradise.

And this is quite correct ! These islands off the African coasts are absolutely stunning ! A beauty to be discovered after having rent your boat either at Praslin or Mahé. Unless of course if you would rather enjoy the option « cabin cruise in Seychelles » and hand over the management of the boat to the captain and his fleet giving you the opportunity to totally relax..

Among the 115 islands making up the Seychelles Archipelago, the 41 interior islands are the most ancient granitic ones worldwide. The rest (74 outside islands) are of coral origin.

The inner islands, namely Praslin and La Digue are near the main island, Mahé. The various other islands are also worth the visit and you may have a look at our suggested routes for further information on how to discover these islands. An absolute NO-Miss is the Island of Curieuse ( haven to giant tortoises, wonderful excursions and beautiful beaches) and the Island Cousin (wildlife sanctuary where guided tours of 90 minutes are possible to discover the exceptional fauna and flora of the island).

Praslin

Ideal departure point for a dream cruise in sailboat or catamaran, Praslin is the second biggest granitic island of the Seychelles. Surrounded by maginificent sandy beaches and well protected by coral reefs, Praslin hosts the legendary Vallley of May. This National Park, listed as a Unesco World Heritage, is the paradise of the famous sea coconuts, commonly known as « coco-fesses ».

Do not forget to stop at the Bay Georgette and Kernan in the north-west of the island as well as the famous beach of Anse Lazio located in the north-east.

Mahé

Only 20 minutes from the airport, the site of Eden Island is located on Mahé, the principal island of the Archipelago. It is the ideal departure point to visit the area. The island of Mahé is perfect for trekking in the Morne National Park of the Seychelles. The Marine National Park of Sainte-Anne, located 5 km away is perfect for scuba diving.

Enjoy the sunset on Beau Vallon beach or the delicious Del Place restaurant in Port Glaud.

La Digue

The Island of la Digue is a must stop place during your sailing cruise in the Seychelles.

We would recommend that you rent a bike with which you can easily tour aroud the island in one day to discover its hidden treasures.

From the main square of the island near the port (good shelter in case of strong winds), you can trave along the western coast till the reputed Anse Source d’Argent which is one the most photographed beaches in the world. Then you will cross the island (count around 20 minutes) to reach the east coast where you can leave your bicycle at Grand Anse to reach Petit Anse and Anse Cocos by foot(around 30 minutes walking).
