Monuments can also be visited in Victoria. Or you can visit one of the culinary restaurants in Victoria and then go to your hotel to spend the night before your departure to the other destinations. Covering an area of 455 km², Seychelles' 115 or so islets offer stunning shorelines and bays for your journey and are perfect for a catamaran cruise.

One of the whitest and most stunning beaches in Seychelles is also on Praslin: Anse Lazio beach. Vallée de Mai on Praslin is a national park and one of the most delightful and well-known sights on the islets of Seychelles.

During your island hopping, visit the smallest of the three primary inhabited islets of Seychelles, the island of La Digue.

This area offers guests many options, for example, some top-rated shores such as Anse Source d'Argent, Anse Severe beach, Anse Marron and Anse Bonnet Carré beach.
Anse Marron on La Digue also combines a gorgeous shoreline with one of the most splendid hiking locations.

How to get to your cruise ship on the archipelago of Seychelles
Most cruises on Seychelles start from the island of Mahé so that you can arrive comfortably by plane for your holiday due to the international airport established there. You can book a direct or stopover, whereby considerably more airlines offer a flight with a stopover. The flight will then take you to the island of Mahé in Seychelles. Once you have arrived on the island of Mahé, the Port of Entry (Port Victoria) on this island is in the immediate vicinity. You can take a taxi to the charter bases and marinas on the island. Of course, if you wish, you can relax in a hotel for a night before your cruise. Many hotels here offer excellent breakfasts for your holiday and other services. Enjoy the view of the islets of Seychelles from your balcony, and look forward to your departure! With its large shopping mall, the harbour offers you numerous shopping opportunities (there is something for everyone here), so you are well-supplied for your entire holiday.
Climate and cruising conditions in SeychellesBasically, you can sail and enjoy the sea in Seychelles all year round. So why wait to fly there? From December to March, however, the light north-west wind blows, so rain showers are more frequent. From May to October, there is a strong southeast wind, which rarely brings rain and, instead, cloudless skies. The weather is comparatively dry and humid, with the high season in June and July. Many anchorages become unusable between May and October as the southeastern consumption washes large amounts of seaweed onto the southern shores. If you want to avoid this problem, it is better to arrive during the low wind months of April and November and book a flight for this time. You can also benefit from the clear water and ideal snorkelling conditions.
NightlifeThe nightlife in Seychelles is relatively low-key, but there are still plenty of options for those looking to have a good time. There are several bars and clubs on the islands, live music venues and casinos. Many hotels and resorts also have their own bars and lounges. Popular activities include going out for drinks and dancing, enjoying a sunset cruise, or watching a live band or DJ. Additionally, many of the islands in Seychelles are where you can spend your nights stargazing and watching stunning sunsets. The area has a small but vibrant club scene, with a mix of local and international DJs, bars, and nightclubs. After spending your day relaxing onboard, we recommend spicing up your nights with some of these popular clubs:
- The Pirates Arms: This club is located in Victoria
- The Plantation Club: This club is located in the north of Mahe
- The Pirates Island: This club is located in the north of Mahe
- The Blue Banana Club: This club is located in Victoria

You should also note that overnight stays on board cannot always be organised as quickly as in the Mediterranean. In the Indian Ocean, an uncomfortable wave can appear in the sea anytime. Often, the sailors' anchorages are not bays but are located in front of beaches that offer less protection. Nevertheless, an alternative location can always be found quickly should serious problems arise. If you book a skipper or crew with your cruise, they will also be familiar with the most suitable anchorages in Seychelles and all the islands there. The skipper can also design the perfect itinerary for your Seychelles cruise.
