Top Things to Do & See in Seychelles:
Anse Source D'Argent
Arguably the most beautiful beach in Seychelles, this postcard-worthy destination should definitely have a spot on your client’s itinerary. The water has a dreamy blue hue complimented by white powdery sand, a true testament to how gorgeous this vacation spot is.
The grand boulders that lie around the perimeter of the beach are the true hallmark of Anse Source D’Argent. Sky Bird advises booking your clients a guided tour, as the island is secluded and visitors could get lost while exploring.
This 240+ year old Tempio Hindu is the only spot in which the teachings of the Hindu religion can be practiced in Seychelles. It has impressed tourists since it’s construction, when the first Indians migrated across the archipelago.
The Tempio Hindu is one of the rare religious attractions Seychelles that shows the grandeur of this world-class environment. A quick stop to this temple can be achieved by booking your clients personal transportation and transfers.
A trip to Seychelles is incomplete without a tour of Bird Island—a peaceful hub of flora, fauna, and wildlife. Bird Island serves as an important rest stop for various migrating animals and a quintessential point on any trip to Seychelles.
Every March, thousands of bird pairs in huge groups take possession of the island. Co-exiting with these vibrant birds are giant Aldabra tortoises. Your clients will be thrilled with the opportunity to see and learn about the thousands of native animals.
Anse Volbert offers travelers everything—including warm water, sun-drenched sands, and coral reefs. An aerial view of the island allows visitors to witness the blue waves crash onto the golden beach. Visitors can reach the Curieuse, St. Pierre, and Chauve Souris from a number of boats moored in the bay.
Although Anse Volbert isn’t the prettiest of Seychelles’ beaches, travelers say that the soft sand and shallow water are ideal for those traveling with children. If your clients get bored of the beach, then there are dozens of small shops and restaurants nearby!
Victoria Market, known officially as the Sir Selwyn Selwyn Clarke Market, is a local market. Your clients can have fun walking around a beautiful market overflowing with produce, flowers, and more. Visitors can experience the authentic culture and lifestyle of Seychelles through local goods including crafts, souvenirs, and vegetables. On Saturday mornings, when booth owners proudly display a variety of seafood from their day’s catches, the market is filled with locals and tourists alike.
