Mondays to Sundays
Half day
All Year Round

Creole invites you to explore the various hiking trails on the islands of Mahé & Praslin, in the heart of the Seychelles wilderness, offering you splendid plunging views of the lagoon and spectacular 360° panoramas. All our hikes are supervised by experienced and passionate guides, who will be happy to share with you the wonders of the endemic plants and birds of the Seychelles.

This is a wild and scenic coastal walk with views of waves breaking on the granite boulders. The first part of the trail is through patches of open woodland areas, small river valleys and over exposed, rocky ridges. Enjoy spectacular views across the sea over Silhouette and North islands.

The trail continues over Glacis slopes, stretching above and below the path. The vegetation is mostly endemic and indigenous species, adapted to survive in such harsh conditions. Endemic birds such as Bulbul, Blue Pigeon Sunbirds may be seen. To get to the main beach, you must cross a small river outlet which emerges from a brackish water marsh. The sandy beach invites relaxation or snorkeling on the reef.

N.B. Not recommended for the physically challenged, parents with young children and pregnant women.
