Welcome to the Seychelles! Lying off the coast of East Africa and just below the equator, it is the land of Giant Tortoises, instagrammable beaches, year round summer, palm trees, Creole villages, coconut curries and home to the largest nut in the world, the iconic Coco De Mer.  Out of 115, Mahe is the main island of Seychelles and the most developed of all the islands. Only a dot on the world map, this island stretches over 28 km long and 8 km wide and is home to the smallest capital in the world, Victoria.

One of the top things to do in Seychelles is spending a few days on Mahe road tripping around the island. The best and most affordable way to do this is by hiring a rental car, which will allow you to visit the most popular beaches as well as hidden ones, drive into Victoria at your own leisure for some shopping and reach hiking trails that would otherwise be difficult to reach by bus. One main road encircles Mahe Island and a few other narrower roads crossing over the mountains.

Mahe is beautiful and the scenery is impressive, offering countless photo opportunities. A drive along the north east coast of Mahe will take you to quiet beaches such as North East point and Carana, great for surfingcar rental seychelles and sunbathing. Not too far away is Beau-Vallon beach, arguably the most touristic and popular beach on Mahe – a great place for beach barbecues and an opportunity to try local bars, restaurants and food markets. Cruising down the south will take you to Anse Royale Beach, the picturesque Anse Intendance and famous attractions such as the Jardin du Rois.

The well-developed road network will also take you through the mountains for a different experience. Cruise through luxurious vegetation, the tallest forest trees, freshwater springs, villages and small shops. Brave the curvy roads of Sans Souci and drive through the wild citronella and tea plantations stop at the several viewpoints including Mission Lodge to view the amazing granite hilltops, sea views and nearby islands.
