Things To Do In Seychelles

Seychelles is an archipelago off the coast of East Africa. It is a country that is home to 115 serene little islands and lays in the Indian Ocean. With numerous beaches on its edges, colourful coral reefs and nature reserves, Seychelles is also accompanied by rare animals like the beautiful Aldabra tortoises. Mahé is the main island and houses Seychelle’s capital, Victoria. Via Mahe you can visit the other islands of this archipelago. Check out the mountain rainforests of Morne Seychellois National Park, Beau Vallon and Anse Takamaka beach. These hot spots are a big win!

Here is the list of 22 Things To Do In Seychelles

1. Scuba Diving & Snorkeling

The ocean is excellent for scuba diving and snorkeling. The unique geographical layout of the coral reefs, marine walls, apexes, drop-offs, bottomed ship wrecks, and ravines makes scuba diving a true fantasy adventure. Mahe island is perfect for snorkeling at spots like Bay Ternay.

2. The Copolia Trail

Copolia Trail in Mahe Island is the best track in the country for trekking and hiking junkies! The trail leads up to magnificent granite hilltops. You get a bird’s eye view of the islands, its beaches, and the mysteriously exotic blue Indian Ocean. Try heading out in the morning for a fun experience.

3. Sunbathing

The beaches of Anse Lazio, Anse Georgette, Anse Source D’Argent, and Beau Vallon beaches are ideal to get your tan on. Take a romantic, adventurous walk down the beaches, lay in the sand, paddle in the shallows, and vibe with the bounties of nature. The beaches have to offer snorkelling, jet skiing, water skiing, and scuba diving activities, just in case you’re in the mood for some thrill.

4. Rock Climbing

Go valley-crossing (aka zip-lining) and climb rocks under professional supervision for some secure adventuring! The Constance Ephélia is one such  luxury resort with huge granite outcrops for you to venture upon. Pick from the different levels of difficulty and watch yourself get more sure-footed on vacation.

Thick cinematic coconut plantations, spooky old cemeteries, a spontaneous coconut oil mill, Copra house, and tortoise enclosure lounge on this land.

12. Your Adventure With Street Food

Seychelles offers unique traditional creole street food. Head out on a local tour to visit popular local stalls to make the most of your experience. Choose from a plethora of spots, ask the locals around or your resort front-desk for their suggestions. We recommend Jules Take Away and The Copper Pot in Mahe, and the Gala Takeaway in La Digue.

13. Island Hopping

Praslin, Fregate, and Denis - hop from one island to another and witness cultural diversity in nature’s arms. Take in the unique vegetation, exotic biodiversity, mountain tops and moonlit shores for a full throttle load of memories to take back home with you. Pick your favourite restaurants on the way.

14. Another Hike!

Anse Georgette Beach is a hikking gem. Mont Plaisir Georgette is the best trail in Seychelles. You get a 360 view of the whole island! What more do we need?  It takes about an hour to finish the hike on an average. Head out in the morning to beat the heat of the sun.
