Best Plan for Seychelles

Hi All,

I have a question regarding my future visit to Seychelles.

at the moment I have 2 nights booked in Mahe, then 3 nights without anything planned andthen 5 nights in Hilton Labriz.

My question is: what to do during those 3 days?

I was planning maybe Praslin + La Digue, but I do not know if it is not enough time and I will be running from one place to another. Also, for this situation, would you do a 1 day La Digue visit or stay there in a hotel?

Maybe removing 2 nights in Mahe so I have more time for Praslin and La Digue? I am a bit confused about.

Thank you very much!!

I would cancel the stay on Mahe and split the 5 days between Praslin and La Digue to have enought time to enjoy both islands. Simple as that.

Thank you Miki! I was not sure if Mahe was a key destination in Seychelles (beaches, nature, etc) so you consider I will have a better experience in La Digue and Praslin right?

Thank you very much!

Different strokes for different folks but we just got back from Seychelles and I actually preferred mahe closely followed by praslin. I really wouldn’t miss a few days in mahe, hire a car and discover it x

Mahe is a really nice island but most of the brochures about Seychelles have cover photos with La Digue beaches mainly with Anse Source d'Argent. And this because the most beautiful beaches are on La Digue and not on Mahe. I really like more to enjoy a day trekking to Anse Marron then staying on Petite Anse on Mahe. The beauty of the secluded Anse Marron you can not find anywhere in this world. If you had more days to squeeze Mahe on your itinerary it would have been better but since your time is limited I would suggest spliting your time between Praslin and La Digue. Not going to La Digue it's like going to Paris and not visiting Tour Eiffel.

Need help in deciding how to plan trip in seychelles from 6 th dec to 14 dec.

At the moment I have 3 nights booked in Parslin( 8th Dec - 11 Dec)

Need help in deciding between these

(Mahe, Parslin,La Digue,Curieuse )

Mahe-> Parslin -> La-Digue->Curieuse-> Mahe or La-Digue- >Parslin->Mahe-> Curieuse -> Mahe

Also would appreciate if some one helps in knowing the stay in budget at these places.

And how can we travel between Islands.
