Take the time to drink in the island’s beauty at one of our top spots for views in Mahé.

1. The Tea Factory, Sans Souci

Take the drive up winding roads through dense forest to discover the stunning mountaintop view from this, still-operational, Tea Factory. Nip into the factory and discover how tea is made and buy some local tea before venturing outside to enjoy panoramic views across the western slopes of Mahé to the ocean beyond.

2. Le Jardin du Roi Spice Garden, Anse Royale

Set on the mountaintop with stunning views down to the beautiful Anse Royale below, this renovated plantation still grows and sells local spices. Enjoy the views and local Creole dishes at the plantation’s small outdoor restaurant.

3. Mission Lodge, Sans Souci

Located just below the summit of Sans Souci, this ex-boarding school for freed slaves on Mahé’s west coast has some of the best views on the island. Drink in views across the ocean to Eden island, Cerf and St Anne’s Marine Park.

4. Morne Seychellois National Park

Take a 45 minute walk through the Jurassic forests of Morne Seychellois National Park and you’ll reach the summit of Morne Blanc with views across the island’s lush interior and out to the ocean beyond.

5. La Louise, Eden Island

With its luxury accommodation, eateries, marinas and shopping arcades Eden Island is a great place to visit in its own right. But cross the bridge from Mahé on to Eden and you get a rare view back at Mahé which takes in Victoria and the entire east coast. On the far side of the island are views across the ocean to Ile au Cerf, St Anne Marine National Park and a scattering of smaller islands.
