Mahé is the largest and most populous island in the Seychelles, home to 90% of the country's population and its largest airport.
The Seychelles are a group of 115 islands, only a few inhabited, in the Indian Ocean that lie off the coast of East Africa, northeast of Madagascar.
The Seychelles were disputed between France and Great Britain during the age of colonialism, with Britain ending up in control in 1814 after the Napoleonic Wars. The islands achieved independence in 1976.
The only international gateway to the Seychelles is Seychelles International Airport (SEZ) near Victoria. Air Seychelles. International service is also available from Addis Ababa (Ethiopian Airlines), Nairobi (Kenya Airways), Dubai (Emirates), Abu Dhabi (Etihad) and Doha (Qatar Airways), and regular charter services from Frankfurt (Condor).
The strict controls imposed on cruising yachts in the early 1990s have been gradually lifted and rules and regulations are no longer so complicated. However, some restrictions remain in force, mostly for the sake of environmental protection as most of the islands are surrounded by coral reefs near the surface.
Air Seychelles operates multiple daily flights between Mahe and Praslin. Over two dozen flights vary in frequency from 15 minute to 2 hour intervals, depending on time of day.
Air Seychelles also operates once daily or several times per week between Mahe and the islands of Bird, Denis, Fregate, Desroches and Alphonse. Assumption Island and Coetivy can be reached by air charter.
Zil Air provides charter helicopter flights to/from most of the inner and outer Seychelles islands. It is the only scenic flight operator in the Seychelles. Scenic flights can be booked to cover the main islands of Mahé, Praslin, La Digue and the surrounding smaller islands of (among others) Cousine, Félicité, Grande Seour, Curieuse and Bird Island.
Seychelles is hot and humid, with an average yearly temperature of 84°F (29°C), and average sea temperature rarely dropping below 81°F (27°C). However, the heat is usually mitigated by refreshing sea breezes, especially by the beaches. The cooler season in Seychelles is during the southeast monsoon season (May to September) and the warmer season is during the northwest monsoon (November to March). April and October are "changeover months" between the two monsoons, when the wind is variable. The northwest monsoon season tends to be warmer with more rain, while the southeast monsoon season is usually drier and cooler.
Languages spoken in the Seychelles are Seychellois Creole, English and French. With the smallest ability in French you'll be able to get around just fine, and a little effort, even a few basic phrases, will assist.
Seychelles has a number of restaurants in Victoria that serve fresh food and meats. Juice is slightly expensive. Seafood is relatively inexpensive, and island curry meats are as well.
Unfortunately, there are not many stores open later beyond Victoria. Unless you happen to be near 24-hour stores, you will definitely want to stock up on food to eat during your stay - or else find yourself late at night without snacks or food
Seychelles has a cellular service and fees for sim cards and internet/3g service are relatively low ( <$50). You should bring a smartphone such as iPhone or even an iPad LTE so you have access to Google Maps and are able to call your hosts if necessary.
During night-time, bus service shuts down. The roads, paths and walk ways are excessively dark and you may want to keep a rechargeable flashlight with you if you have not rented a vehicle. Some stray animals such as dogs, spiders and bats exist and may be frightening at night.
