Mahé is the political and economic centre of the Seychelles, but still retains its natural charm and beauty, as well as the slow pace of life. There are over 75 beaches scattered around the island and often you will find that you are the only people present. Even the most popular Beau Vallon Beach is very peaceful and never gets really crowded.

This spectacular island is dominated by a mountain range peaking at 2.700 feet, blessed with lush vegetation, surrounded by the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean and populated with attractive, friendly people. It will leave you in no doubt as to why it is commonly referred to as the Garden of Eden.

In the charming capital Victoria (pop. 24,000) you will find several art galleries, a museum and an open-air market, but most appealing of all is its quiet, lazy atmosphere. If you're looking for desolate beaches lined with double-crowned coconut trees, check out Anse Intendance on the southern end.
