Seychellois Beach

Visit Mahé Island

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.

Mahé Island, The Seychelles

Mahé is the largest island in the Seychelles and home to the capital, Victoria.

Twenty seven kilometres long and eight wide, it is a dramatic island of granite outcrops and mountains rising from the sea, the tallest of which - Morne Seychellois - is often topped by a dusting of mist.

Mahé's coral reefs

Mahé is surrounded by coral reefs, which protect the beaches and ensure tranquil seas and azure lagoons. The coastline is crinkled with picturesque coves, stretches of sugar-white sand and beaches criss-crossed with bird footprints and littered with shells. Coconut palms stretch over sculpted granite boulders and fairy terns can be heard babbling in the trees.

Activities

There is much to see and do on Mahé. If you ever tire of the beaches, there are walking trails in the mountains and along the coast. Victoria is fun for a morning with vibrant markets, leafy streets and a colourful harbour. Offshore, there are coral reefs for snorkelling and little islands to explore. Returning after a day of relaxation there are tiny Creole restaurants waiting for you, with their tables on the sand, where you can enjoy an ice cold drink and spicy samosa.

It’s a perfect island for a relaxing holiday.
