Your Holiday to the sun kissed island of Seychelles begins today. Upon arrival in Mahe, you will meet & transfer to your selected hotel. The 115 granitic and coralline islands making up the Seychelles archipelago are uniquely spectacular, ringed by white sandy beaches washed by the waves of the Indian Ocean, and covered with lush tropical vegetation, including a wide variety of palm & spice & fruit trees. Enjoy you own piece of paradise at your selected hotel set on the beautiful islands of Mahe. You can spend the afternoon relaxing after your long flight OR there is plenty to do on Mahe such as visiting the capital Victoria to learn a little more about the history of the islands or take a drive out to nearby beaches and stop for lunch in a local restaurant.
Alternatively, you can spend the afternoon on the beach or enjoying a good book under the shade of a palm tree. If you want to just stay put, there are also several restaurants you can visit just down the beach. Overnight in Mahe.
Today post breakfast enjoy a Full Day Discovery Tour of Mahe. The tour begins with a transfer from the hotel for a stop in the colonial centre of "the world's smallest capital", Victoria. Highlights to visit are the court buildings, museum, post office, Clock-tower [twin of the one outside London's Victoria Station]. A turn around the corner takes one to the 'Codevar' building where local crafts, including the renowned Kreol or [Creole Gold] are on sale. A walk across Albert Street leads one to the focal point of the town, its colourful market where stalls of fresh fish, tropical fruits & vegetables, herbs & spices, are displayed in an abundance of fragances.
This is followed by a drive across the Sans Soucis mountain pass, with a photo stop at the historical Mission Lodge, en route to a Creole restaurant for lunch. After lunch, the tour continues around the southern tip of the island to the restored colonial plantation of 'Jardin du Roi', which is steeped in the short history of the Creoles as well as the Georges family, whose family tree apparently carries a link to Louis XVII of France. A cold drink of home-grown fruit welcomes visitors, before they tour the surrounding plantation of vegetables, exotic fruits, herbs and spices. The rest of the afternoon is for relaxation, with a stop at the Craft Village on the way back to the hotel, at around 16h00. Overnight in Mahe.
