Mahé Travel Guide: 215 reviews and 787 photos

The main island of the Seychelles is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and impressive in the world. Each of its 70 beaches has a different character; the rock formations behind them are a dramatic contrast and a beautiful backdrop to for the architectural elegance of the hotels.
Mahé covers roughly 150 square kilometres and is 27 kilometres long and seven kilometres wide. Considering its mountainous interior, covered with lush vegetation, it is a small wonder that the island’s original name was Ile d’Abondance.
The highest point, Morne Seychelles, is 930 meters above sea level. Even that high up the interior roads are good. There are plenty of opportunities for walks through winding paths to appreciate the lush flora and fauna at close quarters, especially at the Morne Seychellois National Park.

Victoria, the national capital with a population of some 20,000, is spread around a large bay at the foot of Morne Seychellois and the Trois Frère. This small town is the islands’ economic and administration hug, as well as their only international port.
