Three Island Boutique Seychelles Holiday - Cerf, Bird & Praslin islands

The Conservation Officer and the Giant Aldabran Land Tortoise Esmeralda Marine Park Island Fairy Tern - Seychelles

If you prefer the relaxed atmosphere of smaller properties, this lovely island-hopping itinerary could be for you. Combining stays at a selection of boutique Seychelles hotels on three different islands - Mahe, Praslin & Bird, it showcases some of the archipelago's magnificent nature and wildlife, combined with a reasonable amount of relaxation.

Your first four days will be spent at Cerf Island Resort in the Sainte Anne Marine Park, just a 10 minute boat ride from Mahé. There are no roads on Cerf Island, just pathways that connect the different beaches, many of which have excellent snorkelling. Excursions can be taken to other islands in the Marine Park, including Moyenne, as well as back to Mahé and to visit Victoria, the world's smallest capital.

You'll then take a 30-minute flight by light aircraft to tiny Bird Island, a coral cay. Accommodation is in relatively simple chalets, but, apart from the powder soft white sand beaches, the main emphasis here is the bird life. There are numerous species, including many migratory and endemic birds, while giant tortoises also 'roam' freely.

Your final 6 nights will be on the east coast of Praslin at the family-owned Hotel L'Archipel, where cottage-style rooms and dotted around its pretty hillside gardens. Praslin affords excellent opportunities to see a wide selection of the rich variety of Seychelles nature - the Vallée de Mai where the Coco de Mer grows, numerous idyllic beaches including Anse Lazio, excursions to outlying smaller islands, many designated as Special Reserves, such as Curieuse, as well as day trips to the charming neighbouring island of La Digue.
