La Digue Island’s Anse Source d’Argent is said to be the most photographed beach in the world. But despite its fame and beauty, you won’t find crowds of tourists flooding the beach. Clean and idyllic, it seems almost untouched and is somewhat secluded, accessible only by walking, biking, or hitching a ride on an ox cart.

Part of what makes the beach so unique are the massive granite boulders forming many nooks, coves, and caves for the adventurous visitor to explore. Its ample coral reef is home to a variety of sea creatures.

Bikini Bottom

Bikini Bottom is a small beach bar located at Anse Severe on La Digue. The cute, colorful hut offers fresh coconuts and local fruit juices, smoothies, shakes, Frappuccino, and even hot coffee and espresso. Sip your drink on one of their brightly colored wooden benches or hammocks while admiring the island’s wildlife or ocean views. Bikini Bottom also has souvenirs and snorkeling, and is a great place from which to watch an amazing African sunset.

The only Hindu Temple in the Seychelles, the Arul Mihu Navasakthi Vinayagar temple has been hailed as one of the world’s most beautiful. Located in the small town capital of Victoria, the temple is an important center of worship for the country’s roughly 2% Hindu population. It is a truly unique and striking structure, decorated with many colorful figures of Hindu deities.

Sauzier Waterfall

On the island of Mahé, hidden within the jungle of Morne Seychellois National Park, you’ll find the small and pretty Sauzier Waterfall. This waterfall is fairly easy to access and offers opportunities for cliff jumping, swimming, or simply relaxing and admiring its natural beauty and surrounding lush greenery. The waterfall is generally calm, but can become wild and rapid after a heavy rain.

Sir Selwyn Clarke Market

The lively and bustling Sir Selwyn Clarke Market is the pulse of Victoria, and the place to go for fresh herbs, spices, fish, fruits, and vegetables. Stop by the marketplace on a busy Saturday morning and support local vendors selling not only produce, but an array of bright clothing, art, handicrafts, and souvenirs, as well.
