Seychelles Sports & Outdoors

  • Street basketball Seychelles

    If you enjoy shooting some hoops, you should definitely try street basketball with local people. During day time there are always some activity at the street basketball courts. Locals have good skills in basketball and they are very athletic! If you have skills don't be shy to go in. Sneakers and basketball.

  • all sports advice

    Unless you are snorkelling, you will have a hard time finding what you are looking for. Beau Vallon beach seems to be the center of activity for fun. It is a huge, beautiful beach. Some of the activities they have there are snorkeling, parasailing, and kayaking. There are also some guys walking up and down the beach asking you if you want to go...

  • Snorkeling

    There are a lot of good snorkeling spots that are reachable from the beaches. For example Anse Laslo on Praslin (check for tide times) You will have to bring your own gear if you do not book a day trip with a boat as we have not seen rental places and there are no shops where you can buy the gear either.

  • Amazing offshore fishing

    My husband brought his fishing pole and some tackle with him to test out the fishing in the Seychelles. He certainly wasn't disappointed!! The fishing was a blast for him and it's quite easy to catch fish.Offshore, he caught quite a few bonito. Closer to land, he caught grouper and some local Seychelles fish. On several occasions, he was able to...

  • Snorkelling

    The sports centre next door to the hotel will do free hire of snorkelling equipment, but the reef just outside the hotel isn't great, at least not within easy swimming distance. If you are serious about snorkelling, it is probably better to join a boat excursion where they will take you to the best reefs.

  • Sailing

    The water sports centre next door to the hotel offers free non-motorised water sports - what a great way to while away a couple of hours - take out a sailing boat. Just remember the suntan lotion!

    Fishing trips can be arranged from the sports centre next to the hotel. This picture shows some of the local people who actually rely on fishing for their subsistence.

  • Scuba Diving

    Scuba diving is available from the water sports centre next to the hotel, for beginners and expecienced alike. The reef around the Seychelles is pretty good and offers some fine diving opportunitites. All the equipment is provided by the sports centre.

  • Snorkelling

    For snorkelling you need a good spot (easy on the Seychelles) and good fins, ditto mask and snorkel (not so easy). My advice is that you bring your snorkelling gear with you from home, unless you are only marginally interested in snorkelling, or if you are doing a scuba course or tours with a professional agency. The stuff for rent or sales in the...

  • Bikes aplenty, but....

    On the Seychelles there are plenty of bicycle rentals. Not so much on Mahe, with all the car traffic there and narrow, steep and winding roads, but certainly on Praslin and La Digue. On La Digue it is the main transportation mode for locals as well as tourists. An excellent idea, of course, until you set off and find out that the bike barely...

  • Diving is said to be great!

    Well, we aren't divers - but we met "thousands" of them and they seemed to be through to bits. Again - very expensive, we were told! Snorkeling is a lovely experience, too! Sorry - don't know about that! We brought our own snorkeling equipment.

    This is a must do trip if you have ever fancied catching big game fish.We chartered an Outrigger for three hours in the afternoon, the Skipper took our party about 6 miles out from Beau Vallon Beach.We never had a bite until we were just about to set off back home, I was looking out of the boat when a large fish leapt clean out of the sea and took...

  • The skipper

    Carlo Pedrini is a pleasant and clever skipper with a big experience. Ask directly to him if you want to do a cruise in Caribean sea or Polynesia. He is an eclectic athlete: practises Triatlon and has a Fitness center in Saronno. Also is a musician and plays battery inside a rock band.
