Mahe Island Excursions – Get Ready for the Vacation

Preparing for your holiday in the Seychelles can be exciting; whether it is your first time visiting or you have gone there countless times. There is always something fun and interesting to do there. For most visitors, Mahe Island, the largest of all the islands in the archipelago may serve as their base for all the day trips and other activities they will enjoy! That’s because it is home to the capital, Victoria, as well as the international airport. If the same holds true for you, consider looking into Mahe island excursions that you can enjoy while you are there. Here are some ideas that you can include in your itinerary:

Island hopping

The islands of Praslin and La Digue are closest to Mahe, so they should be easy to reach through island hopper flights or short ferry rides. Both are among the three major islands of Seychelles, with Mahe being primary. In Praslin, you can enjoy beautiful beaches and a lush natural park. La Digue is a great place to visit if you are looking to relax or to go on more nature tours. One of its must-see beaches is Ance Source D’Argent, but you should also not miss the others like Anse Cocos, Petite Anse, and Grand Anse.

Eden Island is another spot to include on your Mahe island excursions. It is a thriving hot spot with a good selection of shops and restaurants to explore in its Eden Plaza.

Nature tours

Traverse the Morne Blanc Trail or challenge yourself to the Anse Major Hiking Trail. Consider going to the outskirts of Victoria in Mont Fleuri where you can find the Seychelles National Botanical Gardens.

Get to know the underwater life

Snorkeling and diving are traditional ways to do that, so they are usually included in Mahe island excursions if you are looking to enjoy an underwater adventure. However, you can also take a semi-submarine tour through us. Semi-Sub brings you below sea level without getting wet, making our tours a great way to discover marine life, granite rocks, and maybe even spot a green turtle along the way.
