Travel Tips for Mahé

Snorkeling and scuba diving

by Muya

If you like snorkeling and scuba diving, it is better to go in april-mai or in october-november, when the water is more clear and calm. It is better not to go during the monsoons, when the water is more choppy, the sea bed will be unclear and you won’t see the fish that well.

nutmeg /Muskatnuss

by globetrott

In Jardin du Roi you will be shown what the fruit looks like that finally will be exported under the name Nutmeg / Muskatnuss. All parts of the fruit (that is normally as large as a small lemon) are used for different purposes :The fruit-flesh is fed to the animals, the red peels of the stone are known as the spice "Maze" that is used for the production of Sausages like the Bavarian Weisswurst and finally the stone is the precious nutmeg, that used to be a rare and expensive spice in the medieval times.

For a perfect stay

by Muya

Wear cotton tee-shirts, they are more bearable in the heat ! And don’t forget your sungalsses and a hat !
Bring shoes for the beach, fins or plastic shoes to go snorkeling, and good walking shoes. A strong sunscreen, waterproof, because the sun is really hot in the tropics.
Bring some insect repellent. I'm not sure but I read there are a lot of sandflies around, and that might be them, and not mosquitos, that feasted on me every day !
And of course, bring the usual medicine (aspirins, medicine against stomach aches, etc...) Bring your own films to make picture, in the Seychelles they might be a bit damaged because of the heat. Some plastic plates, knife and fork if you want to picnic on the beach. And a swiss knife, always useful to open coconuts :-) Bring a good guide about the Seychelles !

The art-nouveau-cinema of Victoria

by globetrott

It was quite surprising for me to see that there are quite a lot of Art-Nouveau-buildings in Victoria, obviously the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century was a prosperous time for the Seychelles and the rich merchants were able to engage great, contemporary architects. The cinema of Victoria is such a building, there is also a videothek in the same building.
In order to get to the Art-nouveau-cinema just take a walk from the clocktower in direction of the catholic cathedral, it is at almost the end of that street.

Giant Sangdragon Trees

by kyoub

The Mission was once run as a school for the children of liberated slaves, it is now a few crumbling ruins.
Beyond the ruins there is a footpath surrounded by giant sangdragon trees.
In the forest around the pathway you may spot several endemic birds.
At the end of the path is a wooden viewing platform. A lodge was built here for the Queen's visit to the Seychelles in 1974.
You can look out over the tree canopy and see the ocean.
