Depart the UK from your chosen airport.
On arrival in the Seychelles, you will be met at the airport and taken to the ferry port, to catch the hour-long ferry to Praslin. It's a scenic journey and on arrival you'll be met and taken to your hotel, checking in for five nights.
Praslin Island is the second largest of the Seychelles’ islands and boasts a tranquil, laidback atmosphere. Stretching for almost 40 square kilometres, the island is full of lush and tropical jungle, fringed by sugary beaches and lapped by turquoise waters. Rumoured to have been a pirate hideout in the 1700s, today it is a popular island for visitors, thanks to the friendly locals, pretty beaches and ancient palm groves.
You’ll be staying at the Coco de Mer Hotel Black Parrot Suites, which sits in a 200 acres forest on the edge of the water. This boutique hotel enjoys a secluded location, tucked into the granite cliffside and overlooking the blue ocean. Relax in the infinity pool, watch the sunset whilst eating dinner on the beach and indulge in the spa.
After breakfast, you will be driven to the port to catch the short ferry over to La Digue Island. Here you will be met and taken to your hotel, where you will check in for three nights.
The small island of La Digue is a car-free paradise. Once you arrive, you’ll feel the pace of everyday life slow down - all that matters is the white sand, the turquoise water and picking a ripe passionfruit for breakfast. There’s no airport on this tiny island – you have to catch the catamaran ferry across from Praslin.
It’s not the kind of island where you really get up to much – you should spend your time here wandering along beaches, meeting locals and tasting their creole street food or diving into the ocean to snorkel amongst the colourful fishes. The air is sweet with vanilla as you cycle through around the island - our favourite beach to discover is Anse Source d’Argent. This boulder-strewn beach is breathtakingly lovely – the perfect spot for a late afternoon drink on the sand, watching the sunset into the water.
You’ll be staying at Domaine de L’Orangerie, a cosy and private hotel, with little villas spread out amongst a wild and tropical garden. Enjoy huge beds with luxurious drapes before heading to the bar for a sundowner looking out over the ocean.
After breakfast, you’ll be transferred back to the port for your ferry to Mahe. On arrival you’ll be taken straight to your hotel, checking in for your final four nights.
You’ll have 3 full days to explore the beautiful island of Mahé, where soft beaches sit alongside lush jungle and coconut palms sway in the breeze. There is even more beauty below the water – colourful reefs filled with clouds of pink and yellow fish, where manta rays glide slowly past.
Why not head out to hike along the lush trails of Morne National Park. There are so many spectacular walks here. The forests are full of jackfruit trees and fluttering sunbirds, as well as the world’s smallest frog – though they might be too small to find, you’re sure to hear their loud chirruping calls.
You’ll be staying at H Resort, on Beau Vallon Beach. Only 10 minutes from the capital, Victoria, this boutique resort is a haven of tranquillity, with charming creole hospitality and undisturbed views to boot. It’s a wonderful place to dine – try teppanyaki at Seychima, barbecue seafood at Eden or dine in private on the beach under lanterns bobbing in the breeze.
After breakfast, you’ll be transferred to the airport for your flight home. You’ll arrive back later the same day.
There is no bad time to go to Seychelles - these islands have wet and dry seasons but tropical downpours can happen at any time, while the sun can shine throughout the wetter months. The best months to visit Seychelles are April, May, October and November. These shoulder season months are the most pleasant time, between the hot and humid wet season from November to March and the dry and cool season from April to October.
