Six amazing things to do in the Seychelles
Walk in the Vallée de Mai on Praslin
This Unesco World Heritage Site is often described as a “primeval” forest, thanks to the clusters of 4,000 coco de mer palms that are endemic to the Seychelles. The shimmering sound of raindrops in the leaves may be broken by the call of the Seychellois bulbul and, if you are in luck, the rare black parrot.
Hit the beach
Two of the Seychelles’ most attractive beaches are handily near resorts. Anse Georgette on Praslin is 15 minutes’ walk from Constance Lemuria resort. A sumptuous stretch of white sand is met by crisp, white rollers, and surrounded by the Seychelles’ characteristic granite boulders. More adventurous types can take the coastal path across the island to Anse Lazio, a longer stretch of glorious sand with more powerful waves, but equally terrific sunsets. If you do not wish to walk to Anse Lazio you must take the coastal road that approaches from the opposite direction, via Raffles resort and Le Chevalier restaurant.
