Things To Avoid While Travelling To Seychelles

The Seychelles archipelago off the coast of Africa in the Indian Ocean is a marvellous treasure trove of natural beauty with spectacular beaches and exotic wildlife. It is also particularly popular with couples, a place definitely worth considering if you are thinking of where to holiday next with your better half.  

To make sure that the Seychelles retains its beauty and charm visitors are expected to follow certain etiquettes and exercise caution for their own safety. These are some of the travel mistakes to avoid so that you have a fantastic vacation and return with beautiful memories of your experiences in the Seychelles.


Do Not Disrespect The Environment

You are sure to be delighted by the inviting sight of the clear blue waters at Seychelles and its pristine sandy beaches, including the rare pink sand beaches at the island of La Digue. While enjoying Seychelles’ natural beauty and interacting with its amazing wildlife, which includes some rare species, take care not to do anything that could disturb or endanger the delicate ecological balance of these cluster of islands. You can do your bit to preserve its pristine state by not littering. As a responsible tourist, always bin your trash in the public garbage bins provided. If you are seen littering by the local authorities, you could end up paying a hefty fine.     

Also if you spot some exotic plants, seashells or a piece of coral washed ashore on the beach and are tempted to take it back home with you as a free souvenir, think twice. It is illegal to do so unless you obtain official permission and certificate from the authorities. So avoid getting caught on the wrong foot and have utmost respect for the environment while holidaying in the Seychelles.  

Be Cautious While Purchasing Packaged Food

Like with many other things most food items are imported into the Seychelles. If you need to buy a bottle of water, a carton of juice, milk, fruits or any provisions from the local supermarket ensure that you always check the ‘use by’ date on the packaging. Don’t buy any food stuff that is past the expiry date. Instead pick up fresh produce like fruits from the local market such as Victoria Market on the main island of Mahe. A much safer bet.   

Don’t Forget Insect Repellent And Sunscreen

Being a tropical country and an island you will be spending most of your time outdoors, enjoying the beaches and the native flora and fauna. It is advisable to apply sunscreen with a high SPF to protect your skin from burning and use insect repellent to keep away the creepy crawlies.

Following these tips can be quite useful when you are travelling to Seychelles. For more such handy tips get hold of our Seychelles Travel Guide.

Another important tip while planning your vacation and getting your Seychelles Visa, is to buy Travel Insurance for Seychelles. Travel insurance is a must when travelling overseas to cover you financially from any loss arising during your trip. You can check out international travel insurance policies online and buy the one that suits your requirements. 

Festivals on the island are great fun and a riot of colour, sound, food and music giving you a peek into the local Seychellois and Creole culture. Don’t miss out on some of the top festivals celebrated in Seychelles.
