Seychelles

…what beautiful pearls in the Indian ocean, each one different in their own way  – just a dream!

Although far from the mainland, it was originally part of the African Continent (next coast is Kenia). The beautiful and numerous granite rocks have become witnesses of this time and also their marks.

My hotel was on the main island Mahé in the idyllic Beau Vallon Bay. I loved all tropical fruits and creole dishes. I recommend herefor the restaurant ‘Marie Antoinette’, BEST restaurant of the island Mahé. This restaurant is idyllically situated on a hill overlooking to Victoria, the smallest capital of the world. There are indeed just 10 traffic light intersections here.

You can reach the most spots by bus, boat, ferry or taxi, and I felt really SAFE here. Very friendly people .

The rainforest is very well preserved and the flora and fauna are rare natural treasures.

For Example: Coco de Mér, cinnamon trees or even turtles, much is unique here. That island-state consists of 115 archipels; many of them still uninhabited and authentic.

But what also fascinated me was the fact that all religions are actually still living side by side peacefully. Where else is this today? Even fishermen can still live from their catches/work,  I saw my first sailfish –  but how much longer?
Another unique feature is their family structure. Does a couple which have children getting to separate – in fact, the next partner assumes the role of father quiet naturally.
Much has fascinated me here, must necessarily see the rest of the islands.
Especially  Félicité 🙂

    1. I’ve been there September last year, we took the cruise (Island Hopper) back and forth. The islands are soo beautiful but on the way back the sea was choppy and we had such a terrible time. The crew on board released the life boat too which just flew away as soon as it was open. The storm was bad and they asked us to wear the life jackets. We were all glad we got back safe.

  1. Beautiful! I would love to visit the Seychelles! My husband is a sailor and loves that area. We have sailed the BVI, and it is beautiful as well. We are currently living in Pula, Croatia on the Adriatic Sea and it is beautiful here as well. Thanks for liking my post!

  2. My partner and I lived on Mahé for a year. I’ve only recently started blogging but maybe I should write about our time there or at least post the photos! 😆
