Mahé (27 KM Long/ 7 KM Large)

The main Island of Mahé is the largest island in the archipelago and the gateway to the Seychelles. It is also the economic and political hub of the Seychelles and hosts the international airport, the port, and the capital ‘village’ Victoria. Although the most densely populated with 72,200 inhabitants, it is still un-crowded and has not lost its beauty and charm. The island is dominated by a mountain range that forms its backbone, the highest peak of which is Morne Seychellois reaches a height of 905m and provides a perfect backdrop of the tiny capital of Victoria.

 

We recommend that your clients spend at least part of their holiday on the island of Mahe. Besides having over 70 beautiful beaches and lush vegetation, it has the most places to see, the best restaurants and shops and a better selection of facilities than any of the smaller islands. While on Mahe, it's worth taking the scenic drive or tour around the island, and absorbing the more tranquil atmosphere of the wild southern side, including the stunning Cap Lazare, set amid looming granite rocks and palm trees.
