Mahé, Seychelles

Mahé, Seychelles’ Main Island, is home to the capital, Victoria; the majority of the population; international airport and hub of the islands’ tourism infrastructure. 

Mahé’s virgin forests cascade down lush mountainsides to more than 60 beaches where, often, the only footprints you will find will be your own. 

With its bustling port, Mahé is Seychelles’ commercial centre and home to most retail outlets and tourism facilities. Many are concentrated towards the north of the island while the south with its picturesque villages proposes a quieter pace of life.

Victoria is full of history, Creole character and delightful nooks & crannies like the busy market, two cathedrals, Botanical Gardens and Esplanade where you are sure to find that local souvenir. 

Despite its timeless charm, Mahé possesses a modern yet discreet infrastructure such as at Eden Island with its elegant marina and mall, casino, bars choice of restaurants and vibrant nightlife.
