10 Cool Things to Do in SeychellesLike0

Being in the Seychelles for 10 days is probably the most I have ever been. It’s a lovely postcard place to visit and if you do love nature and well, the movie theme of Jurassic park, then it could be your place to be. As much as I am of a nature lover, I still can’t deal with spiders. That’s what nature is all about right? In any case, Seychelles in my opinion isn’t for just everyone, it’s also for those who love outdoor hikes and is extremely comfortable with nature. Seychelles is a lovely place with lovely people and I am glad I got to experience it.

Seychelles has 115 granite and coral islands, of these, 41 inner islands constitute the oldest mid- oceanic granite island on earth white a further 74 form  the 5 groups of low lying coral atolls and reef islets that are the outer islands.

Having said that, here are 10 Cool Things to Do in Seychelles

Love,

Travel Junkie Diary


1. Experience a Creole Cooking Class – The Four Seasons Resort in Seychelles offer that and if you do love to cook and if you are a foodie then you shouldn’t miss this one!

2. Go nature Hiking – It’s very popular to take hikes in Seychelles and reach the very top. Breathtaking views and interacting with nature. I personally did not have the chance to do so at Silouhette Island but they did offer that at Hilton Labriz. Anse Major is also another hike, Copolia and a notorious one is Dans gallas.

3. Local Art Gallery Discovery – A favorite one is local artist Alyssa Adams takes inspiration from the words of Cezanne. Her words “To look is to create what you see” and nothing could be more true to these words. Her paintings can also be found exclusively at The Four Seasons Resort in Seychelles and designed exclusively for guests in series of print.

4. Shopping at Victoria – Bohemian dresses, candles, beach cover ups and everything related to islands. A worth a visit to Victoria for a great bargain!

5. Island Hopping – The Inner Seychelles are granite islands and where most of the popular resorts are located . Island hopping can be done by air or by boat! There are efficient and regular ferry services between Mahe, La Digue and Praslin. To visit the other islands, a charter boat is required. There are package tours that take visitors to other islands too. From Mahe to Praslin there is the Cat Cocos catamaran that makes two or three return trips every day. The boat departs from Victoria, and the trip takes about 50 minutes. Including check-in time for a flight, the boat trip takes about the same time as the flight and is much cheaper. There is an air conditioned lounge and children under twelve travel for half fare. During the high season it is best to make reservations a day in advance of departure. See more here.

6. Go on a spa spree! – One of my favorite spas I have tried so far is at The Four Seasons Resort in Seychelles!

7. Bird Watching – If you are into that thing there are 12 endemic bird species!

8. Diving and Snorkeling – Famous for it’s corals and underwater life, the Seychelles is one of the best places to visit for diving and snorkeling. Baie Ternay Marine National Park is also known for one of the favorite dive locations in Seychelles

9. Swimming at the World’s Best Beaches – It’s true, the beaches have powdered white sand, turquoise water and a beautiful island feel to it. Anse Lazio, Anse Source D’argent, Petite Anse Bay at Four Seasons Resort Seychelles

  • I’ve been trying to (really focusing more this time) to wake up and sleep with affirmations. It used to help me a lot in the past then somewhere along the way, I stopped for a while.
I’d love to read what’s yours!! Everyday, I try to read and write new ones so here goes mine for today and I hope it resonates with you 💕:

  • I am always surrounded by love (and water) because all I see is love 💕 
Happy Easter everyone!
  • A huge shift in my energy today as I start working on our next @travelwithtjd - Scandic countries holds an exhilarating amount of joy and peace in my heart, which I’ve learned not to search anymore for reasons to explain it, because some things cannot always be expressed in words. 
We have recently launched Sweden’s Arctic experience on @travelwithtjd other than Finland, Iceland and Norway. The link is in bio if you like to join our polar journeys and have an adventure of a lifetime. Only 2 spaces left for Sweden. Hope to see you on our TJD trips!

  • Sunrise view from my room facing the Athenian Riviera from @fsathens from Arion side of the building which is more laidback.
I have to admit though, it’s good to be back home and back to a routine. I tend to pick up emotions from the people and environment around me, and from time to time, it’s good to be grounded. Thank you Four Seasons for a wonderful experience and congratulations on the opening! ❤️
  • It was 18 degrees at the most one morning, and the sun was shining. Jumped on a @fsathens boat and sailed to visit the Poseidon Temple and an afternoon lunch at hidden gem by the sea with the sweetest people. I love being on boats and grew very fond on them since I was very little. ❤️
  • I was lucky enough to have had 3 sunny days in Athens before the weather turned into beautiful rain. It was a great weekend celebrating @fsathens opening. This is one of the pools at sunset from Nafsika side with private cabanas on the sides. That’s my weekend, how was yours? ☀️
  • I landed in Athens couple of days ago to celebrate the opening of @fsathens - Four Seasons Hotel Astir Palace Hotel Athens is a luxury escape resting on a peninsula along the Athens Riviera, just 30-minutes from the historic city centre. 
I ALWAYS love coming back to Greece 🇬🇷
  • I’m caption-less this morning. Might be because my mind is either overloaded or too relaxed, does this happen to you? 😊 - but here is @joalimaldives from where I drone. Happy Thursday everyone!
  • Back in Dubai for 24 hours and summer has already begun here and there is no way I can manage to have Charlie look at the camera!! My summer plans are getting together and with a little inspiration from @theitalianwayuae we are adding Italy’s coast on our itinerary as well! #TheItalianWay
What are your summer plans?
  • Located on Muravandhoo island on the Raa Atoll in the northern Maldives, @joalimaldives celebrates the ‘Joie De Vivre’ ... the joy of living, the joy of everything ❤️
  • You’ve got to find that soul friend... You’ve got to find that person. I’ve always truly believed that. 
Those which answers to these questions—does our friendship feel easy? Am I better for knowing this person? Do they help me become closer to the person I ultimately want to be? Can we be quiet together for a long time?That's the person I want to be be forever friends with. That's my soul person. Do you have yours? 💫
  • I’ve traded my snow gear to flip flops! I’m always happy to be back at @joalimaldives and since the pre-opening, it has flourished so much and the island has come alive! I’m always impressed with the incredible work they do here in attempts to save the marine life, the co-operation they do for the local islands and the incredible staff that has become good friends of mine now! ❤️
How gorgeous is this overwater villa?
