There are lots of great places to stay during your Seychelles holidays. Many visitors choose Mahé; it’s the largest of the islands and is where Seychelles International Airport is located.

Other choices for places to stay include Praslin, the second largest island and just 15 minutes from Mahé by domestic flight, although you can also take a ferry or fastboat. La Digue is the other main island, and has some wonderful luxury accommodation. No matter where you choose while in Seychelles, you’ll find something to your liking.
