If you go in june
Be careful, the season is supposed to be the best one, with less rain. When we were there it was quite cloudy. We had some really nice days, but really cloudy in the morning, and a quite changing weather. As it is winter time for the locals and it’s not high season, some places are closed, and it is difficult to find a fresh fruit juice, even if it is written on the menu.
Drink Coco d'Amour liquor
Sugar cane alcohol, coconut cream, sugar and a dash of coco de mer cream, this is the recipe of the famous Coco d'Amour liquor. It is said to be aphrodisiac. A drink to enjoy with the man of your dreams :-)
It is used in many cocktails in the Seychelles, but, but pure with ice cubes, it's really good too :-)
You can find this delicious liquor in many shops, in its cocofesse-shaped bottle for 130 rupees (less at the airport)

The road to the west coat of the island ends at Port Glaud ( pronounced Por-Glow).
From there you can turn left to drive down the coast or turn right where there is the resort where we stayed, a couple of restaurants, a marine national park , and the road ends at a youth service camp.
Climb to the peak
Trois Freres Peak, forms the mountain backdrop for Victoria, and lies in Morne Seychellois National Park.
Although the climb to the peak is only about 2km each way, it is a very steep uphill climb.
There are some very nice views from the peak, if it isn't wrapped in clouds.
