Also known as the Côte d'Or ("Golden Coast"), Anse Volbert earns rave reviews from sun-seekers, swimmers and snorkelers for its sugary white sand and crystal clear water. Although it's one of the island's most popular beaches, Anse Volbert's size (approximately 1½ miles long) means it never feels crowded. "It's not a busy beach but for a good experience, try to go to the right to get away from all the boats," one TripAdvisor user suggested.

Sitting opposite Victoria on Mahé's northwest coast, Beau Vallon is one of the island's most popular beach areas. And for a good reason: The wide shoreline and calm seas make Beau Vallon a great place for both swimming and water sports, including snorkeling, boating, fishing and scuba diving. The area is also surrounded by a wide array of restaurants, hotels and shops, making it a great home base for travelers looking to soak up the rays. Although Beau Vallon exudes a slight resort-area feel, travel experts and recent visitors agree that the beach is worth checking out — especially if you're visiting with kids as there are no strong currents or sharp bits of coral lurking beneath the waves

Despite Seychelles' growing popularity as a tourist destination, Anse Georgette has maintained its sense of seclusion, making it an ideal place for lovebirds seeking some alone time. The beach's white sands are ideal for sunbathing while the calm, clear water draws swimmers and snorkelers alike. But for many visitors, it's Anse Georgette's stunning views that deserve the most admiration. "Anse Georgette is one of the few things in life that left me speechless," wrote one TripAdvisor user. "From my point of view, this is the best beach on the island. It is a must."

Mahé's famous Anse Intendance sprawls across half a mile of the island's southern coast — approximately 20 miles south of Victoria — luring beach bums with the promise of sparkling sands, swaying palms and beautiful views. Though it's one of Seychelles' most popular beaches, Anse Intendance isn't the best place for a dip. The lack of a reef makes for larger, stronger waves that draw surfers in droves. If you'd prefer to swim, head to Beau Vallon (on Mahé's northwest coast) instead.

There's really no avoiding Victoria. Seychelles' tiny capital acts as the transportation hub for all of Mahé — the airport sits a mere 6 miles southwest of town, while many bus and ferry services originate in Victoria. Plus, the city's numerous transport services make it a convenient layover point for those en route to Praslin or La Digue, as well as to other points of interest on Mahé. But recent visitors and travel experts alike recommend taking a day or two to experience the city. Home to one third of the nation's population, Victoria has an air of hustle and bustle, but not enough to break the city of its provincial ambiance. You can join in the action at the Sir Selwyn Selwyn-Clarke Market where vendors have been selling fish and fruit since 1840; or you can brush up on the history and culture of the islands at the National Museum of History (entry is 15 SCR — approximately $1.25 USD — for adults). But for many, the highlight of a visit to Victoria is the time spent at the Seychelles National Botanical Gardens.
