Bird Island is as its name suggests fabulous for birds: around 800,000 pairs of sooty terns nest on the northern tip of the island. Activities on the island include walking, snorkelling, diving and boat trips.
Cerf Island has two tiny hotels and a few private houses. The island has lots of white sandy beaches, while the interior is covered in lush vegetation. Its coral reefs are superb for snorkelling.
Cousine Island has no alien mammals, so is an important nesting site for terns, noddies and white-tailed tropicbirds.
Denis Island is a flat coral island about two kilometres in diameter. Fishing, windsurfing, sailing, swimming, snorkelling and kayaking are available for the active.
Desroches Island is part of the Amirantes archipelago. They are surrounded by many submerged reefs, which proved treacherous for early explorers. Activities include walking, bicycling, swimming and snorkelling.
Fregate Island is a perfect island paradise with its warm turquoise waters and pristine white sand beaches. The island is also home to giant tortoises and hawksbill turtles.
La Digue is ideal for relaxation, although there are gentle activities to enjoy as well, such as snorkelling or walking. You can also take boat trips to nearby islands which are even quieter!
Mahé is the largest island in the Seychelles and home to the capital, Victoria. As you would expect there are plenty of white sand beaches but inland there are unexpected granite outcrops and mountains to see.
Just over two kilometres long and one across, the North Island has small granite hills with fabulous view points, hundreds of coconut palms and takamaka trees and giant tortoises wandering about.
Praslin is one of the larger islands, at 12 kilometres long and 5 kilometres wide. In the centre of the island is Vallée de Mai National Park, a world heritage site.
Sainte Anne Island
St Anne was the site of the first settlement in the Seychelles, when settlers arrived in 1770 from Mauritius to grow spices and vegetables. Today, it's a perfect island to relax on after a safari.
Because of the protective nature of the surrounding reef, landing on Silhouette has never been easy to get to. Accordingly, it has never been over developed - there are not even any roads!
