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

If you prefer the relaxed atmosphere of smaller properties, this lovely island-hopping itinerary could be the one for you. Combining stays at a selection of boutique Seychelles hotels on three different islands, it also has the added advantage of showcasing some of the archipelago's magnificent nature and wildlife. Combining the main islands of Mahé and Praslin with the coral island of Bird, it also provides a perfect balance between capturing a flavour of Seychelles 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 isit Victoria, the world's smallest capital.

Following your stay on Cerf, you'll 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 spent on the east coast of Praslin at the family-owned Hotel L'Archipel. Most rooms are cottage-style 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, Cousin and Aride, as well as day trips to the charming neighbouring island of La Digue.

This 3-island itinerary is a great way to discover the diversity of Seychelles' nature and wildlife.
