Catamaran sailing in Seychelles

Although the biggest islands are of granite origin, with bigger depths along the coast, most of them are basically atolls and cays, formed on coral reefs. These islands have more shallow parts and beautiful turquoise coves where you can get with your catamaran and drop anchor.

If you’re visiting Outer Islands, you’ll probably enjoy island hopping on Amirante Islands that has a small population and widely spread atolls.

Seychellois coast

Some islands have the combination of golden beaches with a lush vegetation that leans over the sea surrounding dark granite rock. Such place is Anse Source d'Argent beach on the island of La Digue.

Seychellois coast

Seychellois coast hides many wonders, such as Bird Island, the northernmost island of archipelago. This small coral island with population of only 38 is known for its birdlife, with lots of other species like Hawksbill sea turtle or Green sea turtle and it is ‘must go’ place for every sailor. There are hundreds of perfect places for rent a yacht and enjoy this tropic beauty.
