Silhouette island

Ultimate guide (April 2024)
Silhouette is a small island located to the northwest of major Mahe island in Seychelles. Strange, but most of tourists don't know about this wonderful place. However, in addition to the National Park (90% of island), there are also two hotels and even a local village. The island is beautiful - with many great beaches. It really have an island's feeling due to its small size. It is always possible to walk to the opposite side of the island and back - during one day. Hiking trails both inside the island, as well as along the coastline are often in poor condition, but still quite passable. Shore and seabed: sand, stones. [edit]
This island ranks #5 of the "Best islands in the Indian Ocean"

There are only two hotels in Silhouette Island. Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa is a 5-star property with rooms' rates starting from US$500 per night. There is also La Belle Tortue Lodge & Restaurant - a four-star hotel with rooms' rates starting from US$300 per night. Value for money is quite Ok, if compare with other islands in the Seychelles.

How to get there [edit]

Fly to Seychelles international airport (SEZ). Next get by the standard ferry, which runs several times a day between the islands of Mahe and Silhouette.

It is good to travel to Seychelles any time of year. The nature is more beautiful in the rainy season from October to April, while dry season will give you more sunny days.
