Seychelles: City Breaks

Book your ticket to paradise

Seychelles is known for stunning beaches and laid-back, tranquil villages – not for cosmopolitan urban centres full of amenities. That being said, a Seychelles city break to the capital of Victoria, combined with some rest and relaxation on a nearby white-sand beach, is only a short flight from many airports in the Middle East and Africa. With a population of just 25,000, Victoria is one of the smallest capital cities in the world and the only international gateway for a Seychelles city break. It is located on the main island of Mahé where there are paved roads and reasonable transportation options. Set against lush jungle and towering granite peaks, Victoria offers wonderful views of the Indian Ocean.

City breaks to Seychelles might include a half-day exploring Victoria's colourful market, botanical gardens and elegant colonial architecture before you head out of town to a beach-side resort or guest-house. After an idyllic day or two basking in the sun, return to Victoria for exquisitely fresh seafood dining and your flight home. A Seychelles city break is a memorable tropical getaway, but you'll be tempted to return for a longer trip to experience the country's other islands, teeming with unique wildlife and offering exceptional diving, snorkelling and fishing.
