Splendor Seychelles Apr 11, 2011
I had worked in Seychelles for the past 2.4 years and it was absolutely amazing experience, I got a complete package, working and holiday. I lived in Mahe Island, it’s a main island, the biggest one. There is one international airport in Seychelles, so first arrival in Seychelles all airlines will be directed to the main island. During my day off, I always spend my time go swim to the beach, nature walk, or hiking. Remember that Seychelles is kind of unique island, hilly and narrow road and there are many variant of tropical vegetations, such as Jackfruit, Breadfruit, Banana, Papaya, Star Fruit, and Mangos. These trees you can find anywhere around the island.
There are three big islands, Mahe, Praslin, and La Digue. I had visited those. Many more small islands you may explore by boat, excursion full day / half day trip. Please contact the local travel agent who will help you and it’s trust worthy. Creole Travel, Mason’s Travel, and many more.
Transportation in Seychelles is limited. The most convenient for me is a car rental (24 hours). I always contact Hibiscus/Palm Car Company, the owner Michael is very helpful and professional compare to the other. If you would like to try a Public bus, which is very cheap, Seychelles Rupees 5 for any distance, per person, one way, one direction.
The most attractive destination in the Indian Ocean, Seychelles has one of the best beaches in the world. A powder white sand and turquoise clean water will bring you to the highest imagination into paradise. These are several beach spot I like the most, Grand Anse, Anse Soleil, Petite Anse, and Anse Gouvernement. Just bring your swimsuit, sun glass, water, hat, and always apply sun screen one hour before you do sun bath, and enjoy the sun !!!
For food lovers, in Seychelles is a mixed cultures between European, Asian, and African type of foods. There are several Creole’s food selections, such as Bat Curry, Shark Chutney, and sweet sour Mango Salad, ehmmmm…… it’s so refreshing to be consumed during lunch or dinner. There some restaurant also served Italian Foods. Try the real Italian Pizza @ Baobab Pizza at Beau Vallon. Hot Stone BBQ @ Maria’s Rock Café at Anse Gouvernement, near Four Seasons Resort.
Definitely I will come back to Seychelles, maybe for my honeymoon
Welcome to another world, Seychelles !

Well this was my second time to the Seychelles and little has changed in the past few years. The folks are very friendly, the food is realatively good and the beaches are still very nice. The shopping area around the Pirate's Arm Cafe is nice and so is the food in the area. Just around the corner is a large outdoor market place where they sell fresh fish, fruits, veggies and other local gift ideas. Though there are many beaches if you are looking for seashells as souvenirs then this is the place to go!! There are a few casino's on the island with slots and very few table games. Prices are a bit more expensive than normal but not outrageous. The Plantation Hotel is probably the best on the island but a good drive (45 minutes) from the center of town. The Berjaya Beau Vallon Bay Beach Resort & Casino, is the best place to just hang out by the beach. With it's beach front bar and dining area, watersports, and a glass bottom boat all in this area it is great for all ages.
