Charter a luxury yacht in the Seychelles and discover the endless beaches, coral reefs and nature reserves as well as some of the world’s rarest animals.
This archipelago of over 100 islands, cays and atolls boast white sand, palm-lined beaches, crystal clear blue waters and vibrant reefs. The tropical climate combines with the gentle trade winds to make it the perfect charter destination to relax and take it all in.
Victoria on the island of Mahé is one of the world’s smallest capital cities; explore the roads and alleys lined with Creole-style houses and wander the stalls and the Sir Selwyn Selwyn-Clarke market before taking in the tiny Hindu Temple, a hint of the South Asian influence on the islands. Finally, stop off in the French Cultural Quarter for some authentic Seychellois cuisine that consists of seafood cooked with a wide variety of spices.
If you’re feeling adventurous and active then Victoria is also the ideal starting point for the Copolia and Trois Freres trails. Both offer walks through stunning rainforests and views of the Indian Ocean as far as the eye can see.
With over 100 different islands, each with their own stunning beaches and secluded bays, there are endless opportunities to enjoy the beautiful vistas in privacy. Whether it’s watching the sun set with a cocktail on deck or grabbing a snorkel and discovering what lives beneath the surface, there’s always something to do.
As you’d expect, Seychelles is a mecca for marine wildlife ranging from sharks, sea turtles, countless coral fish, rays and the largest fish of all, the whale shark. Whale sharks are best seen in the Port Launay Marine National Park off Mahé Island. On dry land, walk with giant tortoises on Aldabra Atoll and see the rare black parrot on Aride and Bird Island.
A luxury yacht charter in Seychelles is your own slice of paradise.
Eden Island, Mahé
Start the first day of your charter at Eden Island, one of the most popular areas of the Seychelles' largest island. Due to its clear blue waters, snorkelling and other water sports are definitely recommended, or for those who want to go at a slower pace, Mahe's longest beach Beau Vallon is perfect for relaxing and in the sun. Why not try some of the local fishermen's fresh fish.
Port Launay National Park, Mahé
For the second day, Port Launay National Park is just on the other side of the island. Much quieter and calmer in comparison to Eden Island, this area is known for its beautiful coral reefs and wildlife including whale sharks!
Silhouette island is renowned for its biodiversity. Whilst this island is a great place for fishing and diving, the island is also perfect for those who like to hike and be more active during their charter. The thick forest is full of different trails and it is even possible to climb to the top of Mount Daubon whilst watching reptiles and exotic birds that inhabit the island.
Praslin is scattered with multiple bays and coves with soft, untouched sands. Explore deep into Valle de Mai; this UNESCO protected palm forest is a must for those who want to get off the beaten track and experience raw nature.
Fregate Island is a haven for those who like serious fishing. The Indian Ocean has a wide range of species, but sailfish is definitely a catch to aim towards! The island itself is a conservation area so it is an ideal way to come to a calming end of the charter. The most popular will be the huge tortoises which roam the beaches freely.
