Mahe is the arrival point for most visitors to the Seychelles. It is home to the main international airport and the capital Victoria which was named after the former British sovereign. The island has some fine beaches and supports a range of accommodation from small family run hotels to the sophisticated upmarket hotels that can be found overlooking its grander beaches.
Mahe’s lush interior is great for hiking and there are a number of impressive waterfalls as well as opportunities for bird watching. Elsewhere on the island you can visit local museums & art galleries, tropical gardens or rum & tea factories. Just off the coast there are plenty of spots for snorkelling and slightly further out to sea there is great diving for the more adventurous.
