Seychelles Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Rent a car at Seychelles Airport. Then head straight to the beach! Beau Vallon Beach is the most popular on Mahé Island, but others like Anse Major, Anse Forbans, and Anse Intendance are beautiful too. On Praslin, a couple of great options are Anse Georgette Beach and Anse Kerlan Beach. 

The population density in Seychelles is low, so it’s easy to find a secluded beach all to yourself. Wherever you end up, at low tide, look for flying fish and different kinds of crab. There are also plenty of opportunities to dive, snorkel, and windsurf. For a real adventure, head to Aldabra Atoll, the world’s largest coral reef, where, if you’re lucky, you’ll see manta rays, giant land tortoises, and tiger sharks.

Back on Mahé Island, Arulmigu Navasakti Vinayagar Temple in Victoria is a beautiful place to learn more about Hinduism, the island’s most widespread religion. On Praslin Island, visit the Vallée de Mai Nature Park to see a lot of unique fauna and flora. Whichever island you’re visiting, make sure to try the local cuisine—a mix of Indian and African influences featuring curry and seafood dishes. 

Seychelles is a great destination and not easy to reach, so once you’re there, why not stay longer and explore more? With a longer term car rental deal you can visit the smaller islands and atolls and the less touristy areas. You can even pick up your rental car at Seychelles Airport and drop it off at a different location. Start planning your adventure today!

Seychelles Airport is also known as Aéroport de la Pointe Larue and Victoria Airport.

Lots of beautiful beaches in mahe, you can visit mere in a single day with the car. Easy to drive through the island

Mahe island is beautiful. A small car like the i10 is perfect for this, given the narrow windy roads and low speed limits. Everywhere is easily accessible. The south and west sides are less busy with beautiful beaches, nice little restaurants, and local sellers of fresh produce. Eden island is worth a visit, and if your over there for a while, take a one day boat trip to Praslin and La Dique islands. The Takamaka distillery is also a must to visit, as are the botanical gardens, and for the more adventurous, a hike to the rock pool, although a reasonable level of physical fitness is needed for this as the trail is quite challenging.

Car is a must have on Seychelles. Do not even think of walking somewhere along main roads, no pavements. I recommend West Coast, less commercial, less people, "wilder"

Mahe might be small but it takes time to go around, especially with the speed limits and the curvy roads. A good planning will make a successful trip!

Seychelles is a must to see place and without car you won’t really find out what Seychelles looks like, but driving at night and in rain can be very treacherous and one has to be very careful as the roads are very narrow uphill and downhills with lots of steep curves and cliffs if you go out of the road by an inch.

Since it was a short trip with the weather being a bit unpredictable we decided to stay on Mahe and enjoy the mainland.

Having a car in mahe is a must! Safiya (and Daniel) was just perfect with us and helped us a lot when we needed ( I forgot something in the car 30 minutes before the boat leaves and they made all they can to bring my stuff back before leaving to praslin. I would like to thanks them again! I recommend discovers car to everyone visiting Mahe

We rented on three locations on the island, and all can be reached by bus. But it's much more convenient and efficient (we only had 8 days) to use a car. With the sometimes very steep road it's good to use a car with some power. I suggest not to rent the lightest car that can be found.

Would recommend buying a SIM card from Airtel once you arrive at the Seychelles airport, it’s worth the money and very useful for GPS and roaming.
