Seychelles is a beach lover’s heaven. There some of the world’s most unspoiled, untouched, heavenly beaches, famed for the white sand and turquoise waters – almost otherworldly. Travel to Seychelles is somewhat limited, as there are hardly any cheap flights to Seychelles and the accommodation prices are comparatively higher than other beach destinations round the world. Yet, the high price range, serves the purpose of keeping this destination original, unspoiled, less crowded and elite.
The capital of Seychelles is Mahe and most international flights land here. It is recommended to have a couple of nights stay in the capital to get used to the diversified attractions, rich colors, vibrant culture and the aura of Seychelles. Other top attractions, to move on with are:
Praslin Vallee de Mai
After Mahe, you can take a ship over to Praslin. When you get to the port on Praslin, there are adequately of cabs that will take you where you need to go. For most folks, it appears there are two main motives to visit Praslin, and both of them value the trip.
First is the Vallee de Mai forestry which is where the famous Coco de Mer nut produces. It is worth a journey just to be able to see this forest. It appearances like wherever from the Jurassic period with enormous palm leaves and these nuts rising in the trees. If you are lucky, you may even get to see the Black Parrots there, which are rare. I did get to see few of them on my trip, but I did get to see adequately of the Coco de mer.
The second nearby attraction is the park. The track into the forest takes about 1 hour if you don’t stop and there is a fee to get into the park. I believe it was 250 rupees but I could be wrong. It is a very cool place and certainly should be on the list of things to do on a trip to the Seychelles.
Beau Vallon beach appears to be the midpoint of action or fun. It is enormous, attractive beach. Some of the doings they have there are diving, parasailing, and kayaking. There are also some guys ambulatory up and down the beach requesting you if you want to go fishing. Boats for fishing and headlong come right up to the beach and pick you up from your hotel. Fishing for 4 people will run around 1000 rupees per individual for half a day and 1500 rupees for an entire day or more. You can elf for Dorado or sailfish or bottom fish for snapper and grouper. If you are successful to try and fish from shore, bring your own gear. It is extremely difficult to find any generous goods whatsoever.
There is one small place I recommend, which is on Beau Vallon Beach, next to the Boathouse called “Stryker”, which has enough tackle on hand to at least make an effort to fish. Pretty much everything is navigable so these prices can vary. As far as snorkeling, bring your own gear if you can. You can find snorkel gear here, but you’ll have to look to find them. There is a dive center at the Berjaya and from what I am told they have great trips and a sensible price. The water is additional salty, but it is well worth it. The set is so much lovelier than anything I’ve ever seen. It is a very calming little island with some of the kindest people you’ll cross paths with. Have fun catching “Seychelles Fever.”
Exclusive the ridges there will be fairly a lot of fish and other aquatic life throughout high tide. Most of the fish tend to go out of the inlets with the present on ebbing water. Likened to the outer reef itself, it’s very partial life inside the reef. Still, it’s pleasurable and fun and not unsafe to don a mask and flippers and flap about in the lagoons and study colorful fish. Here will be some live coral, too, but inadequate. Bring a book of reef fishes etc., and you’ll have your day made out for you, beach bumming and learning too! Cautious, so you do not get tanned on your back side as you swim about in the shallows, and timepiece your feet for sharp coral.
