Do[edit][add listing]

Eat[edit][add listing]

Seychelles has a number of restaurants in Victoria that serve fresh food and meats. Juice is slightly expensive (>$5USD per cup). 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. <p>

Drink[edit][add listing]

Mahe's nightlife is concentrated in Victoria.

Stay safe[edit]

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. <p> 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. <p>
