  • Cat Cocos ferry between Mahé and Praslin

    Mahé Transportation

    When we visited the Seychelles for a week in March 2015, we decided to split our stay between the islands of Mahé and Praslin.We had two options for travelling between Mahé and Praslin. We could take an inter-island flight operated by Air Seychelles or we could take an inter-island ferry operated by Cat Cocos. The flights were quicker (a 15 minute...

  • Shuttle bus: Airport to ferry jetty

    Mahé Transportation

    Many visitors to the Seychelles will land at Mahé's international airport before transferring to the islands of Praslin and La Digue.Internal flights are available between Mahé and Praslin, while inter-island Cat Cocos ferries connect Mahé with both Praslin and La Digue.This latter option means travelling from the airport to the ferry jetty in...

    Praslin Transportation

    We made use of the local buses most days during our stay on Praslin island in March 2015.There are only 3 bus routes on the island (#61, 62 and 63) but they cover all the main sights and all 3 routes go via the ferry jetty at Baie Sainte Anne (from where boats connect Praslin with the islands of Mahé and La Digue).Route 61 travels in a U-shape...

  • Laid back self-service bar at Anse Lazio

    Praslin Restaurants

    I had read about the Honesty Bar prior to our visit to Praslin in March 2015 and really liked the sound of the concept.Basically, you help yourself to the drinks and are trusted to leave the correct payment in a box on the bar. It's all very laid back. And trusting. Just as it should be.The location is excellent. It is perched on a hillside...

    Victoria Restaurants

    The Seychelles is free from international fast food chains – but it now has its own small (but growing!) fast food chain - The Butcher's Grill.The Butcher's Grill is owned by Fresh Cuts Butchers and has two outlets on the island of Mahé with plans to expand further throughout the country. The owner freely admits...

    Victoria Restaurants

    The Pirates Arms is surely the most popular restaurant/pub in the heart of the Seychelles' tiny capital city, Victoria. Not that there's a great deal of competition for that title!It is located on Independence Avenue, just a short walk from Victoria Clock Tower, and it has a casino attached to it.We visited on a Friday evening in March 2015 and the...

Anse Volbert Village

  • Excellent all-you-can-eat BBQ buffet!

    Anse Volbert Village Restaurants

    Les Lauriers was the restaurant that I was most keen to visit during our stay in Anse Volbert in March 2015.It was ranked #1 (of 10 restaurants in Anse Volbert) on Tripadvisor and was renowned for its all-you-can-eat BBQ buffet.The buffet costs 425 Rupees (£21.25) per person – but this is very good value by Seychelles standards, especially since it...

    Anse Volbert Village Restaurants

    I was looking forward to eating at Lakaz Restaurant during our stay in Anse Volbert in March 2015.The reviews on Tripadvisor suggested that it was a basic place offering good value (if somewhat limited choice) local food. I also learnt that diners were welcome to bring their own wine along as the restaurant only serves beer and water. So, we...

  • Day trip to Curieuse (and St Pierre)

    Curieuse Things to Do

    One of the most popular day trips from Anse Volbert is to the neighbouring island of Curieuse and the small rocky islet of St Pierre.The former was a leper colony until 1965 and is now famous for its hundreds of free-roaming giant tortoises and for being the only place in the world, aside from Praslin's Vallée de Mai Nature Reserve, where the Coco...

  • Bird watching

    Curieuse Things to Do

    There are a few bird species on the island, mostly the Seychelles sunbird, bulbul, and fairy terns.There is hopes of establishing the Black Parrot here because it is almost extinct on La Digue.

    The beaches of Curieuse remain exceptionally beautiful, especially in the south and east where the calm, sheltered waters are obe of the best anchorages in the Seychelles.The Tra-la-la is waiting here for us to come back aboard.

  • Ferry

    La Digue Transportation

    The only normally available option getting to La Digue is via a ferry from Praslin. Which means you will have to take the ferry from Mahe to Praslin. Which means you will have to pay the extremely expensive ferry cost for both, inconveniently priced in Euros. In the end, it is worth the hassle and expense, of course, and thankfully, the ships are...

  • La Digue: At Their Pace, Not Yours

    La Digue Favorites

    The people of La Digue have a certain way about them. You have the island life mentality, so expect everything to be at a slower pace, but also go knowing that these people have an immense pride about their way of life, the care with which they are taking care of you, just done their way. Trying to force things to be done as you want them not only...

  • Grande Anse

    La Digue Things to Do

    If Anse Source d'Argent is too tame for you, then hop over to the other side of the island to Grande Anse. Here you will find the same perfect sand, but the waves here are anything but tame. You must be careful though, as with the undertow, its easy to get caught in the washer, tumbling and flailing about while the locals sit and stare at you....

This is the ideal place to come for lunchtime snacks.It is the site of the popular Wednesday night "Bazar Labrin" – but it was also pretty busy (with stalls, if not with...

    Beau Vallon Favorites

    You have abnout one hour walking from Victoria to Beau Vallon. Nobody can get lost in Beau Vallon. People are the best in Beau Vallon, friendly and helpful. They are not looking to sell you something, a souvenir or to offer a service, but just to be pleasant with you.
