On a trip to the Seychelles, water is your main playground. Activities range from leisurely cruises and island-hopping to more adrenaline-fuelled fun, such as jet-skiing and water-skiing. Fishing is also popular, with big-game expeditions a favourite among trophy hunters looking for marlin, sharks and rays.
However, if you would rather conserve game fish than hunt them, you can go on guided dives to the coral reefs that surround the islands, and meet these aquatic giants on their own terms.
If you prefer to stay on dry land, then there are plenty of sporting activities, usually arranged by your hotel or resort. From tennis to hiking, cycling to Pilates, you can be as active or as relaxed as you want. If you want to discover the island’s interior, there are several well-marked hiking trails on the main island of Mahé, and a few additional paths and trails on Praslin too.
