If you stay in Beau Vallon, you will easily reach Victoria by bus. To get to Anse Intendance by bus will take a lot of time. Keep in mind wherever you go on Mahe, you have to change buses at Victoria bus terminal.

To get an overview about routes, visit Seychelles' Public Transportation website http://64.202.117.173/~sptc/time-table/

On Praslin the situation is similar. To get to the mentioned beaches requires a lot of time. Taxi is a more expensive solution of the issue.

As mentioned before you'll have to take the bus from Beau Vallon to town (Glacis via Beau Vallon or Glacis via Anse Etoile) and then from Victoria to those places. The Botanical Garden is in the district of Mont Fleuri, which can be reached by foot in around 15 minutes. Anse Intendance is in the south of the island (Takamaka) and it takes around an hour to get there. In my opinion this trip is worth it though. The hotel is located at Sans Souci, which you can reach by taxi from Victoria.

For Praslin I would recommend to take a taxi and the boat will arrive at Baie St. Anne (east side).

I will be staying in Beau Vallon next month also without a car.Is it also possible to get the bus to Main depot (Victoria) and then to Port Launay for some snorkelling?Is there anywhere of interest to stop along this route and how long is it from Victoria?

Hello Frankie,

You can get to Port Launay taking bus 20 or 21 from Beau Vallon to Victoria and from Victoria Terminal get bus no 14 to get to Port Launay (45 mins with bus no 14 through Sans Souci). Try to avoid buses no 13 and 9 which have as final destination Port Launay since the time to get there from Victoria exceeds one hour.
