Self Catering Seychelles

Self Catering Holidays to the Seychelles are a very popular way of experiencing the Seychelles islands and some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, without breaking the budget.

Self-Catering Holidays in the Seychelles?

Why would you want to go on holiday and do your own cooking and washing up? It’s a fair question – but many people find that they end up eating out all the time on a Self Catering Holidays to the Seychelles anyway.

Eating out is generally inexpensive in the Seychelles (especially in Mahe, less so in Praslin) and if you have transport it’s often the preferred option for many.

What about the Lack of Facilities?

Sure, you’re not likely to have a pool or a tennis court – but then you will have the Indian Ocean, and most beaches in the Seychelles are ideal for swimming.

Where can I stock up on food?

There are plenty of local stores in the Seychelles where you can buy groceries. A bit of planning ahead helps – stores are very local, don’t expect Waitrose – sometimes they can run low on stock as well.

What about transport?

Car rental on Mahe is very good value indeed and if you’re going self-catering on Mahe we highly recommend renting a car.

This offers the flexibility of going exploring the island as well as popping down the shops to buy food or going out to eat.

What should I budget?

A typical one-week holiday to the Seychelles in low season staying at Chalet d’Anse Forbans on Mahe is £1,200 - £1,300 per person.
