What our specialists say...
This trip is ideal for visitors seeking independence on their trip to the Seychelles, staying in self-catering guesthouses rather than hotels or resorts. Explore two different islands, setting your own pace each day, buying ingredients from the local market or dining at local restaurants. Starting on La Digue, you will spend four days exploring this charming small island by bicycle or traditional ox-cart. Moving on to Mahe, you can use local transport or hire a car to visit some of the superb beaches, enjoy walks in the Morne Peninsula National Park and watersports such as snorkelling.

Day 1 La Digue
Day 2 La Digue
Today you can wander down to the main street where you can hire a bicycle for a few days or the full duration of your stay. This is the best way to get around the island and gives you complete independence to go where you want, and when. They come with baskets in the front so you can pack a picnic, and snorkel masks and fins, and just head to a secluded beach!
Day 3 La Digue
If you are interested in birdlife, do take a pair of binoculars with you, as there are some colourful and unusual species on La Digue. The paradise flycatcher is extremely rare and La Digue is one of the only places left where you can see one in the wild!
Day 4 La Digue
Anse Source D'Argent is one of the most photographed beaches in the Seychelles and is definitely worth a visit during your stay on the island. The beach is just beautiful, with enormous granite boulders on the headlands at each side of the bay, and some superb snorkelling straight off the beach.
Day 5 Mahe
This morning you will take the ferry back to Mahe. Here a driver will be waiting to transfer you to the Chalets D'Anse Forbans, situated on one of the loveliest beaches on the island. Settle into your chalet here and spend the afternoon on the beach or enjoying a good book under the shade of a palm tree. The guesthouse offers car hire on site, making it really easy for you to hire a car for the day to explore. If you want to just stay put, there are also several restaurants you can visit just down the beach.
Day 6 Mahe
There is plenty to do on Mahe such as visiting the capital Victoria to learn a little more about the history of the islands or take a drive out to nearby beaches and stop for lunch in a local restaurant.
Day 7 Mahe
If you fancy getting out on the water, you can hire a windsurfing board or a small catamaran for a couple of hours on Beau Vallon bay, which you may enjoy at some point during your stay.
