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 few days will be spent at Cerf Island Resort in the Sainte Anne Marine Park just a 10 minute boat ride from the main island of Mahé. There are no roads on the island, just pathways that connect the different beaches from where there is excellent snorkelling. Excursions can be taken to other islands in the Marine Park, including Moyenne, as well as back across to Mahé, and the opportunity to visit Victoria, the world's smallest capital.
Following your time on Cerf, you'll take a 30-minute flight by light aircraft to the tiny Bird Island. Accommodation here 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 Praslin at the family-owned Hotel L'Archipel on the east coast. Most rooms are cottage-style and dotted around its pretty hillside gardens. Being on Praslin, there are excellent opportunities to see a huge selection of Seychelles rich variety of 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 wonderful opportunity to discover the diversity of Seychelles' nature and wildlife.
