4 nts Avani Barbarons Seychelles Resort & Spa, Mahé

Avani garden view room with breakfast

Mahe may be the largest and most densely populated island in The Seychelles, but at only 17 miles long and 5 miles wide it is delightfully compact and easily explorable. The joy of Mahe is the variety it offers: glorious coastal scenery ranging from wild granite cliffs to tranquil palm-fringed bays, while inland are high hills and remote rainforest and throughout the island are small towns and a unique Creole culture.

There are over 60 wonderful beaches and coves fringing the island, ranging from sweeping bays of white sand to hidden corners to find for your own Robinson Crusoe experience.

On the stunningly beautiful northwest coast is popular Beau Vallon, which may be more developed than other areas but is still low key with a gorgeous beach spread across a huge bay along with calm, gentle waters. Beau Vallon also has a good range of restaurants so you aren't limited to those in your hotel, however good they may be! It's also a good base for exploring Victoria and for access to the harbour for boats to Praslin and La Digue.

On the west coast is Port Launay Marine National Park, which has a horseshoe-shaped beach of white sands and calm, relatively deep waters forming a natural harbour. As a protected marine reserve the snorkelling is fantastic here and with a glorious backdrop of jungle clad mountains and high granite hills covered in forest, you'll feel surrounded by nature.

For beach hopping and seclusion it's hard to beat the south of the island. Here you'll find small settlements interspersed with forest and winding coastal roads leading to spectacular beaches, such as Anse Forbans, a huge bay naturally divided into three smaller beaches by boulders. The waters are shallow and calm with a natural lagoon formed by a reef some way off the shore. Other beaches close by include Anse Royal, Soleil, Intendance and Takamaka.

Mahe's tiny capital, Victoria, is a bustling centre whose streets are lined with endemic palms and a mix of Creole-style houses, Indian shops and British relics. There's a vibrant market, manicured botanical gardens and modern shopping plazas.

FREE upgrade to superior room with breakfast

Lying northeast of Mahe, the second-largest island in The Seychelles falls somewhere between the relative hustle and bustle of Mahe and the sleepiness of La Digue. Praslin is a granite island, with a ridge of small mountains running through the centre, tangled velvet jungle, curving hills dropping to crystal-clear seas and gorgeous expanses of soft white sands fringed with swaying palms.

Praslin has three main settlements, Baie St Anne which has the terminal for the inter-island ferries for Mahe and La Digue; Grande Anse on the south coast which is near the airstrip; and Anse Volbert on the north coast. Between these main towns the island is sparsely inhabited so it's all too easy to imagine you are own your own piece of private paradise.

The dreamy beaches around the island are all picture-perfect with white sand and shallow, turquoise seas. In the north west of the island is Anse Lazio, often hailed as 'the best beach in the world' and with half a mile of sugary soft sand and incredibly clear water it's not difficult to see why. Also not to be missed is the outstandingly beautiful Anse Georgette, a gloriously untouched and attractive expanse of sands, however swimming is not always possible due to strong currents. Nearby Anse Kerlan is a charming little cover with gentle waters and some great snorkelling around the rocks, while equally lovely beaches include Anse Bois de Rose, Anse Petite Cour, Anse Cimitiere and Anse La Blague to name just a few.

No trip to Praslin is complete without a visit to the World Heritage Site of Vallee de Mai, the world's largest forest of coco de mer. Several nature trails run throughout it ranging from short hour long routes to longer circular routes which take around two to three hours at a leisurely pace. All six endemic palms of The Seychelles are found in Vallee de Mai along with the national bird, the Seychelles black parrot, which only breeds on Praslin. While they are difficult to spot, their piercing whistle can often be heard.

Praslin is also a great base for visiting several smaller neighbouring islands, some of which are important sanctuaries nurturing rare species of endemic flora and fauna. Watch the amazing birds on Cousine Island; meet giant tortoises on Curieuse; or discover the amazing underwater world around St Pierre.

3 nts Le Repaire Boutique Hotel & Restaurant, La Digue

Standard room with breakfast

If you are seeking beautiful beaches, a relaxed island vibe and a genuine touch of local life, La Digue definitely fits the bill. With jade-green waters encircled by coral reef, bewitching bays studded with gorgeous beaches and green hills cloaked with verdant jungle and towering trees, La Digue truly is a tropical paradise.

All visitors to La Digue arrive in the east coast village of La Passe, where there are a few shops, a number of grand plantation-style houses and places to rent bicycles, which is highly recommended. With no airport and just a few roads with a handful of cars or the odd ox cart, La Digue is the epitome of laid-back.

The beach in La Passe is a rather narrow strip of sands with shallow waters but does have magnificent views back across the water to Praslin and some of the most memorable sunsets. The closest swimming beach, Anse Severe, is just to the north with nearby Anse Patates also a great choice for splashing around in the waters and snorkelling. La Digue's most famous beach, Anse Source D'Argent, lies on the southwest coast and has silver white sands framed by giant granite boulders and perfectly positioned palms. A coastal path continues southward which passes a series of equally beautiful coves. The island's largest beach is Grand Anse, a phenomenal sweep of white sand with dramatic waves breaking across the bay and a great place to relax and enjoy the view, but it's not a recommended swimming beach.

If you can bear to tear yourself away from the beaches visit L'Union Estate formerly the centre of the island's coconut farming industry and now a national heritage site. Alternatively head to the small Veuve Reserve, home to numerous bird species, including the rare black paradise flycatcher.
