The Seychelles Archipelago, which consists of over 100 islands, is regarded as one of the world’s most interesting and attractive vacation spots.
It has become a predictable sanctuary for honeymooners because it’s home to many luxurious 5-star hotels. Watersports, mountaineering, birdwatching, a white sand beach with crystal clear blue waters and breath-taking sunsets are just a few of the activities available on various islands.
Let’s have a look at some of the extraordinary Islands to visit in Seychelles:
- Mahé Island
The Seychelles’ main island, Mahé, is where most travelers begin their journey. This area is a beach lover’s paradise, with exotic plants surrounding the beaches every single mile.
There’s plenty of natural beauty to be found in every direction. The island is surrounded by picture-perfect sceneries and spacious uncrowded beaches, all framed by granite peaks.
It’s an indescribable paradise, words alone cannot do it justice and you’d have to visit it personally.
There are a lot of Luxury Boutique Hotels in Mahé, Seychelles and accommodation should not be a problem. visit Story Seychelles for a serene, soothing, and rejuvenating staycation that combines luxury, adventure, and an excellent staycation.
Tip: Carry a tripod if you’re a solo traveler because this is the “It-destination” for breathtaking pictures.
Praslin is Seychelles’ second-largest island, and it resembles a jungle-covered mountain range erupting from the sea, with a few low-rise buildings and a tiny jetty strewn about.
Aside from being home to countless resorts in Seychelles, the conventional tropical-island trio of sun, sea, and sand is a significant appeal, but there are also floral wonders, uncommon birdlife, and the slow pace of traditional Seychellois island life to be found.
The Island accommodates the Praslin National Park, which covers the majority of the island’s interior, and is a haven for the island’s unique, indigenous, and endemic plants and wildlife.
Because there are no roads that lead inland, you’ll have to explore on foot.
We recommend coming with a guide who can distinguish the Seychelles blue pigeon or sunbirds’ cries and bring you along the sometimes difficult trails.
- La Digue
La Digue is the third biggest populated island in Seychelles, and it can be accessed with a ferry from Mahe. On the east side of the island, one gets at the village of La Passe, from which one may enjoy spectacular views of Praslin across the lake.
This island is incredibly peaceful and a top pick for a Seychelles Holiday. It has about a handful of vehicles and we’d like to equate it to “taking a trip back in time”.
The Island also boasts one of Seychelle’s most stunningly photogenic beaches with its powder sand and pink granite boulders, pink! Ladies and gentlemen, this is an unbeatable destination.
with only a few vehicles and several gorgeous beaches. It’s as though you’ve taken a step back in time. Transport is provided by colorful oxcarts, and the pace is slow.
In the Seychelles, take a once-in-a-lifetime island-hopping day cruise from Praslin to Curieuse Island and the stunning St Pierre Islet.

Pierre islet in the afternoon, where you’ll dive among a kaleidoscope of exotic fish, leaving you with vivid recollections of your time in paradise.
- Cousin Island
Cousin Island, a protected reserve with spectacular wildlife, is located 2 kilometers west of Praslin Island. The island used to be a coconut plantation before being turned into a natural reserve in the 1960s.
The island today supports a diverse range of indigenous flora and animals, including the well-known local tortoise George, thanks to careful monitoring and conservation efforts.
If we hadn’t been told, we would have never known it was a coconut plantation.
Cousin Island is a must-see for any animal and environmental enthusiasts visiting Seychelles. During our stay at Raffles Resort, we had the opportunity to explore the island for a day trip.
