Seychelles, Mahe Island

by Jovana Lakic May. 23, 2020 430 views

Mahé is the largest island in the Seychelles archipelago, in the Indian Ocean off East Africa. Beaches and nature of the island are probably ones of the best I have ever seen in real life. We took a trip to the island in December 2012; part of these photos are from that trip, and some of the images of beaches are taken on one of the earlier trips. Nevertheless, the island has an eternal beauty.

The villa we stayed at was really beautiful. There are many over the top resorts on the island, but the stay at a bed and breakfast was just as perfect.

Even though Seychelles became an English colony in 1903, the language and the culture of the island remained French.

Hi Jovana, Lovely pics. Mahé is very nice. I got there quite by chance two years ago. I had one of “those Mondays” at work. I came back from work, checked where I could escape from my boss quickly and on Wednesday morning flew to the Seychelles for a long weekend. I was back at work on Tuesday. What a refresher! 😀

Thank you, Piotr. I wish I could teleport myself sometimes there, it is truly beautiful and relaxing..For now, I explore the nature, here in Ontario, until I travel somewhere nice to chill again.
