Best Things To Do in Seychelles
Seychelles's claim to fame is its beaches. The islands' soft, white shorelines — peppered with immense boulders and framed by the warm, clear Indian Ocean — are often seen gracing the fronts of postcards and the covers of magazines. And the best part about Seychellois beaches is that even the most popular stretches of sand (like Anse Intendance and Anse Source d'Argent) are never crowded. If you don't mind the company of critters, make your way to Curieuse Island to soak up the sun alongside giant tortoises, or dip below the waves off the Beau Vallon coast for a fishy encounter. Once you tire of the sand, the sea and the sun, cool down in the shade at the Seychelles National Botanical Gardens on Mahé, or stretch your legs in Praslin's Vallée de Mai Nature Reserve.
