Quote: This was my first trip to the Seychelles, but because my other half originates from there I’d heard a lot about it’s beauty but other people’s words and photos cannot prepare you for the real experience. Our main base was on Mahe but we also visited Praslin.

Attraction | "Victoria's market is a great place to experience local life"

Quote:
The market in the Seychelles capital town of Victoria was an experience that I wanted to sample during my recent trip. Officially known as the Sir Selwyn Clarke Market (named after a former British Governor of the Seychelles) I'd been told it was it was an amazing place to see the local life and it didn't fail to live up to my expectations, well second time around at least.The market can be found right in the middle of the town, appropriately enough on Market Street, where it was first established in the 1840's as a place for the local fishermen to sell their fish. Today the local fishermen still arrive every morning but there are also stalls selling fruit, vegetables and other local prod...Read More

I visited here in June 2013 and my first impression was that it was very beautiful. My other half originates from Praslin so we were taken there by a cousin but our visit was very brief (approximately half an hour), but we returned a few days later on our own and spent several hours here. The beach is composed of the finest white sand fringed by native Palm trees but unlike most other beaches in the Seychelles th...Read More
