Walking in the Seychelles

Seychelles holidays: Where to go walking in Seychelles

The sound of waves crashing on the shoreline, palm-fringed beaches and panoramic views over the deep blue Indian Ocean makes walking in the Seychelles a delightful way to explore the islands. World renowned beaches are the perfect bases for a relaxed walk. If you are looking for something a bit more adventurous then head to the forest of Vallée de Mai. Here you can see towering trees, discover waterfalls and explore the tropical islands in your own pace.

No matter if you want to stroll along the beaches of Desroches, explore the palm forests of Praslin or discover the mountain of Mahé Island, the Seychelles offer a great variety of walking options on holiday.

Four Seasons Desroches Island

Desroches Island is also good for walking in Seychelles, offering some beautiful beaches to stroll at your own pace. Most people cycle on the island, with bikes readily available, however you can explore on foot if you wish.

Le Sans Souci

Le Sans Souci Guest House is a great base for walks in the Seychelles with access to the mountains of Mahe Island; routes leading directly from the guesthouse; and the trails in Seychellois National Park are only a short drive away.
