Trip Planning FAQs

What are the highlights of Seychelles?
Mahe is arguably the largest and most diverse island in the archipelago, endowed with natural beauty in abundance, rich tourism resources, and plenty of gorgeous beaches such as the world-famous Beau Vallon bay. Travelers can walk around the small capital Victoria to catch a glimpse of Creole culture and history, spend wonderful beach time in picturesque Mahe, as well as explore Saint-Anne Marine National Park with a boat excursion to admire fascinating marine landscapes by diving or snorkeling.

Praslin, home to the UNESCO World Heritage Vallée de Mai, retains its characteristic beauty to attract many nature lovers and young couples to enjoy a unique honeymoon in this tropical paradise. It contains the legendary Coco de Mer palm tree, which is one of the rarest and most unusual plants in the world. Sunbathing on Anse Lazio and Baie Sainte Anne should not be missed. Guided hiking on Mahe or Praslin is also highly recommended to spot its extensive flora and fauna.

Bike riding on La Digue is very popular, allowing visitors to experience authentic island living moments. Some leisure time on picture-perfect beaches Anse Source D’Argent and Grand Anse would be inspiring as well.
What language is spoken in Seychelles?
Creole, French and English are the three official languages in Seychelles. English is widely used in commerce and law. Most Seychellois speak English fluently, and travelers will likely encounter no trouble when communicating in English. However, the local people converse commonly in Creole, which is a French patois developed during the slave era.
What is the best time for snorkeling in the Seychelles? Where and what do I need?
The wind does not blow in April and November, and underwater visibility is optimal during these months, so you can plan your trip at this period if you wish to snorkel frequently during your holiday to Seychelles.

Almost every picture-perfect beach in the Seychelles is suitable for snorkeling. Travelers can snorkel directly from the beach or reach the offshore snorkeling spots during a boat excursion. Due to the high cost of living in Seychelles, we recommend you bring your own mask, snorkel and flippers, therefore you could explore the fabulous underwater world whenever you want. Otherwise, you need to purchase or rent the right equipment at hotels, resorts or diving centers.
Is it a good choice for honeymoon or family vacation?
Definitely yes. Seychelles is a beautiful, romantic, well-rounded holiday destination for your honeymoon or family reunion. Known for its picturesque beaches, stunning reefs, ecological diversity and turquoise ocean, Seychelles is particularly admired by visitors for their relaxation needs.

Generally speaking, Seychelles is also a very safe country in Africa and the friendly locals welcome tourists from around the world, all of which make it an ideal spot to enjoy your dream honeymoon or family travel.
