10 Must-Do Things in Seychelles

D84A7779

Hi Everyone, ๐Ÿ™‚

As I am wrapping up this trip. I thought I’d put up some must do things for you that you can do in Seychelles.

I was all about maxi dreses and skirts during this trip. Andย id you are following Faux Pas for a while you’d know how much I love my one shoulder dresses. Well this post has a two of them. ๐Ÿ˜› I wore this orange dress twice during this trip – one time for lunch and the other time for dinner. Clearly love it way too much. ๐Ÿ˜€ ย The last James Ferreira dress I wore was years back so I was quite excited when I found this. He is the king of drapes in my opinion and the way the dress wraps your body makes you feel so feminine. I finished off the look with not one but two statement pieces – a huge neckpiece and 2 cuffs. I made a side bun and put a fresh flower in my hair. ๐Ÿ™‚

For a day time look for hopping around the islands I wanted to wear something that I could wear over my bikini and throw it off before going to the sea. I found this cute little dress at Eden Island. It is from ย french Fashion Designer, Bronzette. I just added some fun sandals and sunglasses.

Sanjeev and I went on a island hopping one of the days during our stay in Seychelles. We started early at around 6 in the morning and took a ferry to the island. The first stop was Mahe to La Digue, then ย Praslin and then back to Mahe. They have a day schedule for the ferrys. Just ask the concierge at your hotel about it. You could prebook the tickets or go early to buy the tickets.ย We were not sure of the weather so we took the tickets the same day. I mean it would not have been fun visiting islands on a rainy day. We had a mix of passing showers, clouds and a good amount of sun. All in all it was a gorgeous day. I hope you enjoy checking out the photos.

Here is your list of must dos in Seychelles. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Spend a LOT of time at the beach. They have the most stunning white sand beaches and crystal clear pastel water. Truely Dreamy. We stayed at Four Seasons in Mahe and they haveย a beach calledย Petite Anse. It was stunning.
  2. Make a day tripย to La Digue and Praslin. If you want you can also stay on those islands and enjoy the island life. Also there are a lot of small hotels on the islands that can totally help you budget your trip. And from there you can do island hopping.
  3. Anse Lazio is one of the most stunning beaches in Praslin and the water was breathtakingly clear. Sanjeev and I spent so much time swimming in the ocean. Crazy fun. One of the best I’d say.
  4. Hire bicycles on La Digue. It is a small cutie island and bicycling was so much fun. Praslin is a huge island so you’d have to move around there either on a tour bus or a hire a taxi. Don’t forget to bargain.
  5. Do not miss visiting the Giant Tortoises. They are the cutest slowest things you’d ever see. ๐Ÿ˜€
  6. Ice-cream at Eden Island is worth every bit.Plus the breathtaking view would totally not hurt. You could even stay there or even charter a boat if you prefer.
  7. If you want to see the rare coco de mer, you could make a visit to Botanical Gardens in Praslin. I mean you could skip it as well but it is something that you’d get to see there only. The drive is stunning on the island.
  8. If you are a sea food lover, consider yourself in heaven. As a vegetarian I had major issues findingย meals. I was living off pastas and sandwiches.
  9. You could also visitย Curieuse Island. It is an island that you visit from Praslin. They have a marine national park where they raise tortoises from babies. It is basically a bio-reserve. You could take a boat or do a walking trail among the forest. It could be a very expensive affair.ย Ask your hotel about it.It’s better to do this trip from Praslin than Mahe.
  10. Make a visit to Victoria. I was not too fond of their market but you know it was nice to move around on the island mixing among the locals. You could do some grocery shopping from there. ๐Ÿ˜€ They also have a Big Ben. ๐Ÿ˜€

I’d put up a post on How To Plan a Trip to Seychelles in a few days. Keep a look out for it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Tanvi says:

    I love faux pas. When I am bored I can open just one post on it but stare for hours at your gorgeous pics. Seein your posts I always realise how little I have travelled ๐Ÿ™‚
    One small suggestion Rati..why don’t you add cost per trip to your travel posts..it would really help the readers when planning their trips through Faux pas.

    • Rati says:

      tanvi, we are not comfortable giving out the money part. We just want to share the travel part and people who plan their trips can take bits and pieces from our trips and budget things themselves. ๐Ÿ™‚ I always give details of hotels and the activities we do so one can always do a quick google search for the rates. Plus the prices change according to months/ seasons . Ot’s always good to get the freshest prices. ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Shikha says:

    You look like a beautiful dream, Rati. Absolutely stunning. More stunning than the views in Seychelles. ๐Ÿ™‚ But you know this already, right? ๐Ÿ˜€

    I loved the scenery and how beautifully it has been captured. That sky pic is my most favorite after your cycle pic (which is so cute). Wish to see more of your love and more of your travel posts soon. ๐Ÿ™‚

    PS: “WHEN HE ASKS YOU TO POSE BUT YOU ARE NOT IN A MOOD TO. : P” is the cutest! ๐Ÿ˜›
