This Seychelles beach holiday is superb value and stays seven nights at two lovely small beach hotels – Les Lauriers and the Anse Soleil Beachcomber – which stand in contrasting beach locations on Praslin Island, which is well-known for a remarkable palm forest at its heart, and the lush mountainous Mahé Island. You'll travel between these islands by fast ferry.
You'll be met by one of our representatives at Mahé Airport and transferred to the ferry terminal; it's a short drive of less than 20 minutes. The fast catamaran ferry from Mahé Island to Praslin takes about 45 minutes. You will be met on arrival in Praslin and transferred by coach to relax for your first night at Les Lauriers Petit Hotel. Stay here for 4 nights, across the road from the casual Côte d'Or beach, with its handful of restaurants and watersports centres. Use this as a base to explore Praslin: there's lots to do! Vallée de Mai is a short drive away; stunning beaches like Anse Lazio, are often very quiet, and Curieuse Marine National Park is easy to visit.
You will be collected from Les Lauriers by a scheduled coach transfer, and transferred to the ferry terminal, before the 45-minute crossing back to Mahé Island. There you'll be met and transferred to the south-west of the island; it's about 90 minutes – where you'll spend the next 3 nights at Anse Soleil Beachcomber. This small and very laid-back hotel stands above a perfect crescent-shaped sandy beach, complete with photogenic rounded boulders. Stay on the beach, or hire a car to explore the rest of Mahé, with its quaint capital, artists' studios and deserted tropical beaches.
Depending on the departure time of the flights back or other onward arrangements you have booked, you might be able to spend a good amount of your final day relaxing day on Mahé Island. Then, it's an approximate 45 minute transfer back to the airport, arriving in time to connect with your onward journey plans.
