The archipelago of the Seychelles has 115 distinct islands, but most are uninhabited, so it comes down to choosing between the three primary islands where to live–Mahé, Praslin and La Digue. Mahé is the biggest and home to Victoria, the capital of the Seychelles, and the international airport. Praslin is lower and can be reached by air or ferry, and you can take the ferry to La Digue from there.
The islands are relatively near together, so it's tempting to attempt and see them all, but traveling time and expenses add up, so if you only have a couple of days it's best to concentrate on one island. The longer you remain, the prices of accommodation tend to be smaller, so you can save money without moving around.
The peak season in the Seychelles runs from December to January and from June to August, when you will have to pay greater rates and book well in advance. Rainy season is January through February, but it's still warm and generally brief downpours. So you can save money on flights and accommodation costs if you don't mind risking a shower.
WHERE TO STAY IN THE SEYCHELLES
Upon arrival at the airport, you need proof that you have booked your Seychelles accommodation, so it's not the kind of location you can wing and pick up a last minute bargain space. Luxury choices far outweigh the Seychelles budget gems, so you need to book as far as you can if you really want to bag the best Seychelles locations.
The Seychelles are all about the beaches and are the best option for the islands. All beaches are accessible free, so even those with some bet accommodations are accessible to the public as well. You can hop around the islands and plan to stay at the best island resort. If you are planning to stay in La Digue Island, the best holiday accommodation La Digue Island Lodge at Anse Réunion beach, one of the most unique and vintage establishments of Seychelles -surrounded by a lush green environment and a private stretch of beach.
GETTING AROUND THE SEYCHELLES
La Digue is so small that the majority of people get around by bicycle or ox cart, apart from a few taxis. Mahé and Praslin are larger, so the simplest way to explore is to rent a car. If you don't want to hire a car, the government buses are the best choice. The buses cover more than 40 distinct paths through Mahé and Praslin.
SEYCHELLES FOOD AND DRINK
The Seychelles cuisine is another thing that most tourists to these islands fall in love with. And that's why there is excellent reason. There's something for every taste bud and palate here, from freshly caught fish to local fruit, from spicy curries to sweet fried bananas.
