Dreamy Shades of Blue at La Digue, Seychelles

We present to you our sample itinerary for 8-10 days that explores this beautiful paradise and to give you some great ideas of what Seychelles really has to offer you. Obviously, you could spend a lot longer exploring different islands of the archipelago nation based on your preferences.

Pick and choose what tickles your fancy and tailor the itinerary that suits your budget and time.

– Mahé –

Let’s start with Mahé which is the biggest island of the 115-strong archipelago and Victoria (the smallest capital in the world) is your first stop when you land in Seychelles.

seychelles-travel-guide-itinerary-1-58

Whether you are looking to spend your days basking on a beach, hiking through the mountains, immersing yourself in the local culture or indulging on scrumptious Creole cuisine, it is all possible here in Mahé.

seychelles-travel-guide-itinerary-1-020

Beaches are lined with luxury resorts and home stays. It is very easy to drive straight to your hotel and spend an entire week on the island without even venturing out. But by doing so you could miss out to experience the charm of the island life.

We would suggest keeping a day or two to explore the island. But if time is not a constraint, there are a plethora of activities that Mahé has to offer that can keep you going for weeks. Old French Victorian mansions, vibrant local markets, art studios, mountain trails, colorful gardens and cuisine that blends Indian, French, and African influences.

Must Visit Places/ Things To Do in Mahé:

Hit the Beaches: 

Believe us, there are just too many of them. From the happening Beau Vallon to the secluded Anse Major, chances are high that you will stumble upon the prettiest of the beaches dotted all along the coastline every now and then. The striking feature of all the beaches is they are pristine and mostly deserted.

Our suggestion, rent a car and go beach hopping. Don’t forget to pack your snacks or lunch with you along with your snorkeling gear.

You can check out more resorts at Mahe island and deals below.

Getting Around

Mahe is a large island with virgin forests and countless beaches.

 The island is very well connected with bus service which is extremely affordable but the only problem is you need to keep of track of bus timings and plan things accordingly.

 Taxis can be fairly expensive when compared with the price of a rented car. Hiring your own car is one of the best ways to enjoy Mahe. Nothing can beat the mood to discover it at your own pace.

– Praslin –

Praslin is the second largest island of Seychelles and well connected with Mahe and La Digue by ferry service and flights. Praslin is a smaller version of Mahe with jaw-dropping beaches, hilly terrains where life is slower and a little more laid back. A short plane ride from the capital city of Mahe or a ferry ride will get you to this incredible island in no time.

At Anse Lazio, Praslin

Here you can wile away your days lazing on the calm beaches or you can just strap your goggles and snorkel discovering the amazing marine world. Eat some authentic Creole food or meet some great local people. Eat, swim, dive and relax – these are the four major ways to pass the time here.

Must Visit Places/ Things To Do in Praslin:

 Explore Vallee de Mai 

A UNESCO world heritage site spanning across 19.5 hectares and is home to diverse flora and fauna as well as the world’s largest seed – the Coco de Mer. You can also find rare species of birds, trees, and lizards in the national park strewn with boulders. Even the national bird of the Seychelles, the black parrot can be seen here. Make sure you don your trekking shoes while visiting the park as it involves a lot of walking and hiking the nature trail.

The entry fee for an adult is 300/- SCR.

BEACHES :

seychelles-travel-guide-itinerary-1-034

Getting Around

By Bus: If you need local transportation, the bus system is really cheap and easy to use.

By Car: If you need to do a lot of driving, rent a car—the best option.

And there is one road that intersects via Vallee de Mai, joining Grande Anse and Baie St Anne. This route via Valle de Mai is a bit easy while the other one is steep, winding and narrow.

It is well connected by ferry from Mahe. Fast Ferry operates every day and you can easily book your tickets at the jetty or online. You can check the ferry timings here.

Price: 50 Euros one way.

There are daily flights from Mahe to Praslin.

If you are looking for a laid back island escape — speckled with beautiful boulder-strewn beaches, azure water, breathtaking sunsets, palm trees and on top of it all accessible by bike or foot; La Digue Islands fits the bill perfectly.

With no cars allowed on the island, a handful of restaurants, hotels & homestays, this is the perfect island to escape to do literally NOTHING.

La Digue is a heaven for nature lovers and those seeking for a glimpse of traditional island life.

Must Visit Places / Things To Do In La Digue

Take it easy, relax on the picture postcard beaches of la Digue. Each one stunning from the other.

seychelles-travel-guide-itinerary-1-008

Rent a Bike: The best way to explore the island is by bike or on foot.

seychelles-travel-guide-itinerary-1-021

 Hike Nid d’ Aiglo – The highest point on La Digue, this hike is a great way to spend a day. But a word of caution the hike is pretty exhausting and steep that even you cannot bike. But the good part either you can hide your bike in the bush and enjoy the sweeping views or head to the restaurant to watch the sunset and enjoy an amazing cocktail or dinner.

Handy Tips:

seychelles-6

Sunset every day in Seychelles looks like …

 

  • While planning your trip to Seychelles, try to keep Mahe, Praslin, and La Digue as a base to stay and explore all the tiny islands around these three islands. Plan at least 2 – 3 days on each island to explore in a more relaxed way, stopping by each and every beach.
  • Make sure you take your snorkel gear and a good book to retire quietly to the beach, swim and get the perfect tan.
  • Pack plenty of food and water while exploring the islands. Keep yourself hydrated whilst exploring the island.
  • Island hopping tour starts at 9:00 am and can be booked easily at the jetty or by the resort/homestays itself. Depending on the tours, pick up & drop can also be arranged from the hotel.
  • Renting a car is one of the best options in Mahe and Praslin.
  • For more secluded and private escapade, Silhouette island, Dennis island or North island are an ideal escape destination.
  • We would highly recommend renting a car from the airport/port itself as renting a taxi can create a dent in your wallet if you are on a budget. And moreover, driving has its own charm in this stunning country.
  • Last but not the least all the beaches of Seychelles are open to the public, so enjoy, relax and discover your piece of paradise.

    This is an incredible guide! So detailed. La Digue sounds like the perfect place to disconnect and literally do nothing. Sounds just like what the doctor ordered for me :). I’ll definitely be saving this post for future reference.

    I have to say I am not a beach person, but these beach pictures are so scenic and this water is so blue I wouldn’t mind chilling on those bitches ! As i am French, I should really go 😉

    I’m moving to Dar es Salaam which has cheap flights to the Seychelles so I’m very excited to go there! I’ve saved this post for later as you really give a great overview of all the main places to visit.

    You are absolutely right: This is picture perfect. I hope that one day my wallet will allow me to spend some worryless days on the Seychelles 🙂

    Happy continued travels!

    You have convinced me to visit Seychelles. The pictures are so exotic and now I am definitely looping it in my countries to visit.

    I would love to look for the French pirate’s treasure as who knows how much it would be worth. If you don’t find it you won’t be that disappointed as you are in a place with incredible scenery. Renting a car seems like the way to go.

    Don’t mind me, just adding La Digue to my list of places to go! Wow, first off did you ride that swing? And love places where cars are banned, it allows for the picture taker in me to not worry about getting hit by a car! Thanks for sharing.

    I’ve never been to Seychelles but I’ve heard so much about it and your pictures are gorgeous. Of course the pirate’s treasure would be a nice bonus as well!

    I’m yet to visit the Seychelles but the photographs here looking incredible. I like your tip about hiring a car, I think that is the right approach as you get so much more freedom.

    This is another paradise to add in my bucket list! The sand is so white, and it’s lovely! I like the thought of kayaking as well, as I love water adventures! Great post. Thanks for introducing this place!

    I’ve always wanted to go to the Seychelles, but was deterred by the length and the price of the flight from NYC. Thanks for your comprehensive guide to the different islands! I think La Digue looks like my speed, and that swing looks like a lot of fun!

    The Seychelles look beautiful! La Digue sounds like a perfect escape from the rest of the world. I need to put this on my list for sure!

    What I would really love about the Seychelles, is the fact that you can have a peace of tropical beach all by yourself. It is like your own little paradise. Would definitely use this guide if we travel to the Seychelles.

    Love the fact that you can have your own peace of tropical paradise at the Seychelles. No crowed remote beaches, but just pearl white sand and aqua blue sea. Would definitely use your guide when we travel to this beautiful destination.
