Madline's Top 3 Seychellen Highlights
Biking on La Digue
One of my highlights because...
...you can easily drive from beach to beach and discover the great nature!
...so I can enjoy the relaxed island flair even better and always get to talk to locals!
Hiking to Anse Georgette
I highly recommend this because...
...The hike from Anse Lazio to Anse Georgette joins the two most beautiful beaches on Praslin.
...The beach panorama is unforgettable from up above. Just remember to bring sturdy shoes, GPS of some kind (e.g. maps.me offline maps), and plenty of water.
The openness of the Seychellois
Simply great because...
...They are helpful and will gladly give you tips and other advice in different languages if you need
...You can get to know the locals just as you do their beaches, which is great!
Madline's favourite experience in the Seychelles
It’s tough to say, as the Seychelles have so much to discover from one day to the next if you keep your eyes open and get up from your beach towel every now and then :) A highlight for me is the sunset view from Belle Vue Restaurant on La Digue. A view from there, combined with the delicious food on offer, is a great combination. I recommend booking by WhatsApp in advance (transfers from your accommodation are included in the price).
Madline's Insider Tip
If I told you, it wouldn’t be an insider tip anymore! I’d rather recommend that you explore the islands yourselves and don’t simply stick to the beaches that are in every travel guide. Anse Intendance on Mahé, for example, is my favourite beach on the islands. A snorkelling tour to the Coco, Sister and Felicité islands from Praslin or La Digue is something else I think is really great. Try Creole cuisine in the smaller takeaways on the islands (e.g. Jules Takeaway on Mahé, Coco Rouge on Praslin, or Julie’s Takeaway on La Digue. Indulge yourself in the numerous scents and spices of the Seychelles and remember to take a few souvenirs from the Victoria Market on Mahé with you for your own kitchen at home!
