As the largest and most developed island in the Seychelles archipelago, Mahé is not only the gateway to this tropical paradise but is also home to the Seychelles’ capital city Victoria. The majority of Mahé’s accommodation is strung along its stunning coastline, where you will find numerous luxury resorts ready to pamper to your every beck and call. With its relaxed pace of life and overwhelming natural beauty, every Seychelles itinerary should allow for a few days to explore Mahé.
Praslin is the second-largest island in the Seychelles, its population is the size of a small European town. Arrive by light aircraft (a 15-minute flight from Mahé) and you’ll see a jungle-covered mountain ridge breaching from the ocean. The classic tropical-island triad of sun, sea and sand are a big draw, but you’ll also find botanical curiosities, rare birdlife, and the gentle pace of traditional island life.
Enchanting Silhouette Island
Now designated a National Park, Silhouette Island is just a 40-minute boat ride from the main island of Mahé. The beautiful and mountainous island of Silhouette is the third largest in the Seychelles archipelago. Silhouette Island has rainforest-clad slopes giving way to pristine white sand beaches with huge granite boulders. Here you will find an abundance of fauna and flora, including many rare and indigenous species. Giant tortoises freely roam the island. Wonderful walks abound, and expert help is available.

Mahe is just over 10 hours from the UK flying direct with British Airways or approximately 13 hours via Europe or the Middle East.
Generally the considered best times to visit are March/April or October/November as the weather is most settled. June to September, though usually dry, can be very windy, especially on the west coasts of Mahe and Praslin or if you’re at sea!
