We knew we were travelling to a beautiful place when we booked this trip, but it was not until we set a foot on La Digue beaches that we realized we have landed in paradise.
In Praslin we stayed at the Berjaya Praslin Resort, right on the long and wonderful beach of Anse Volbert (Cote d'Or). We rented a car and explored the island: the jungle in Vallée de Mai (where we learned a lot about the famous coco de mer), the beautiful views fromFond Ferdinand highest peak and the other amazing beaches in the island : we fell in love with Anse Lazio and Anse Georgette (the latter we were able to visit it thanks to the authorization requested on our behalf by Seyvillas/Berjaya). We took a boat tour to Cousin, Curieuse and Saint Pierre . Lovely snorkeling there and a very nice BBQ surrounded by a lot of giant turtles.Curieuse IslandFond Ferdinand, Praslin
In La Digue we stayed at La Diguoise. We rented bikes to visit all the island secret places and snorkeled on our own in Severe beach. In our boat tour to Sister, Coco and Felicite we even saw a sea turtle! Anse Source d'Argent was a bit crowded compared with the other beaches, but still breathtaking.

I was worried about the ferry transfer from La Digue to Mahe, but the journey was pleasant (a couple of pills to avoid seasickness helped). In Mahe, we stayed at Romance Bungalows in Beau Vallon. Only a couple of days there made clear that Mahe was an island that will deserve another trip: so many places to discover and explore! Beau Vallon is probably one of the best beaches I have ever visit: a long strip of white soft sand and turquoise waters make you feel like in a postcard, and the sunset is a magic experience there. Not bad for snorkeling either.
Our wonderful trip ended in Cerf Island, at the nice hotel of L'Habitation . The hotel facilities are wonderful: they provide snorkeling equipment, snorkeling tours and kayaks free of charge. Sainte Anne Marine National Park was the best place for snorkeling in all the trip. We saw starfish, sting rays, corals and a myriad of colorful fish which made us stay in the water for hours. The kayak also gave us the opportunity to explore other beaches in Cerf and even cross to one of the other small islands in the Marine Park. We told the hotel that this was our anniversary trip, and they had a special treat for us. This was the perfect closure for a perfect trip.
We were happily surprised by the high quality of the accommodation and services provided by Seyvillas. All transfers were punctual and smooth, and we always had a representative from Creole ready to help when needed. We found more rain that expected, but this did not avoid that we could visit all the places we wanted and join all the tours we liked. It was also shocking not to find another Spanish travellers during the whole tour, which led us to think that Seychelles is not a very well known destination in our country. I will send you some video clips from our tour, one of the in Spanish in case it could help you to promote this awesome destination in Spain as well.
It goes without saying that we are already saving money for a next trip. If we can finally afford a second visit to Seychelles, we would like to focus our trip in Mahe and maybe just a short visit to Silhouette (just a day tour, as this island is too expensive for us to stay).
Simply, one of the most beautiful trips in our life!!!
