Boxfish Island Holiday: Day-by-day

More detailed information of what each day entails, and the various places you’ll stay on the Boxfish Island Holiday. Everything we do is completely tailor-made so while this is an idea which works well, we’ll always design an itinerary just for you.


Day 1

Starts: Seychelles International Airport Mahé

Le Sans Souci
Days 1-5

Le Sans Souci

4 nights
Bed & BreakfastMahe Island, Seychelles

Reached via a mountain road which winds through the tropical vegetation, Le Sans Souci Guest House stands high on the mountain slopes overlooking Victoria Port and the neighbouring islands of St Anne Marine National Park. Set amongst tropical mountain gardens, this gem of a guest house is not on a beach; however it has stupendous views and an ideal location for exploring Mahé's interior.

"If only Mahe was closer to England, we would be returning 3-4 times a year"

We find Le Sans Souci to be very welcoming: Janine makes a great hostess. Although not on the beach, the setting is wonderful and Sans Souci is ideal as a base for walking in Mahé's forested mountains. Meanwhile, it's only 15 minutes' drive to Beau Vallon Beach and, on the other side, it's 20 minutes' drive to the beaches in the Port Launey area. See our full report on Le Sans Souci

Coco de Mer is a cheerful place which is exceedingly well run. Unusually, it appeals just as well to families as it does for honeymooners, as it offers really exceptional value (by Seychelles standards) with very good food and a wide choice of plenty of activities.
