Mahe is the largest and the most developed islands on the Seychelles archipelago. It is home to the country’s capital, Victoria and 90% of the country’s population. Mahe is diverse when it comes to Natural beauty. This island in the east coast of Africa has lush green jungle clad mountains rising from the Indian Ocean surrounded by beautiful pristine beaches and coves and sweeping bays of white powder sand. The island is divided into the East and the West by the Morne Seychellois National Park. The majority of the population is in the east coast between the Sychelles International Airport and the city of Victoria. Though crowded a day’s trip to Victoria can be worth the time with visits to the botanical gardens and markets and other sights that grace this city.
Driving along the road that rises over the hills to the west, you will reach the sweeping bay and shallow waters of the wonderful Beau Vallon. From here you can hike up to the stunning Anse Major. On the south of the international airport is a stretch of coastal roads, hidden cloves and stunning beaches starting from Anse Royal. Anse Louis, Anse Soleil, Intendance and Takamaka are some of the most important beaches of Mahe. As you head north, you reach the small village of Port Glaud. Further North lies the protected marine reserve of Port Launay.Morne
