Silhouette Island Holidays

Lying just over 12 miles off Mahe's western coast, Silhouette Island is the third largest in the Seychelles archipelago, yet despite its proximity to the main island, Silhouette is the most undeveloped and most remote of the Seychelles' inhabited islands.

Numerous mountain peaks dominate the seascape and their densely vegetated and forested slopes give way to spectacular beaches whose powdery white sands are dotted with huge granite boulders. Encircled by coral reefs, Silhouette is also a Marine National Park with an extravaganza of marine life including barracudas, rays, lionfish, hawksbill turtles, white-tip sharks and parrotfish, making it ideal for snorkelling as well as diving.

The interior of the island is also a national park, with some of the richest biodiversity in the entire Indian ocean. The island has no roads running across the island so hiking the many attractive walking trails that wind through the primeval forest is the only way to explore. Hundreds of endemic birds, reptiles, plants and trees call the island home, including many rare hardwoods, exotic orchids, incense trees and carnivorous pitcher plants.
