I’ve actually moved my Seychelles-related posts to a new blog. But if you are still following me here, follow my tweets on twitter.com/sabrinasabino where I post updates on the floods we’re experiencing here in Seychelles. Search for #SeychellesFloods and you’ll get the updates. As far as I know, things are getting really bad and situations [...]

Recently I emailed my Vietnamese friends and I attached pictures I took here in Seychelles. They were recent pictures. She replied asking me if there were more than just beautiful natural scenery (“blues and greens”) in Seychelles. Woops! Come to think of it, I do annoyingly send out cliche pictures of beaches and everything else [...]
The following is a view that I’ve been trying hard to capture for quite a while now. It’s something we all see on our way to Beau Vallon beach or back to Victoria from the north. This view is only visible for a few seconds if you are going by car so thankfully I’ve been [...]
If I’m not mistaken this is Grand Anse Mahe Beach. A very lengthy one at that. Sea looks rough, probably not a good idea to swim here. Didn’t look like there was a lot of people there when I went, although interesting enough I did see a ‘tourism police’ sitting there having a snack. She [...]
This is possibly the weirdest beach stop I’ve ever experienced…a stop to view L’Islette island from Port Glaud. This is actually a privately-owned island, and within walking distance during low tide. It’s a beautiful little isle, and if you wake up to that view every morning it certainly is a pretty sight. I can’t say [...]
You might be able to spot a few pictures with the remnants of what used to be Mahe Beach Hotel. Picture was taken up at Morne Blanc. Tourists were constantly stopping right at this spot just to take photographs. This place is higher up in the mountains so the temperature was considerably cooler than places [...]
Anse Louis is the relatively small beach that sits right outside Maia Luxury Resort. There were a few people walking along the short length of the beach when I was there, but it’s definitely not the kind of beach I would recommend. Not that there’s anything seriously wrong with it. But the beach is surrounded [...]
A short distance from Port Launay beach near Constance Ephelia Resort is a very narrow road that leads up to rocks and a breath-taking panoramic view of the beach. There are cacti growing in their natural environment within the spaces of the rocks so be very careful if you’re interested in checking out this place.

I spent several days at a maisonette on Eden Island with my family and it was a rather interesting experience. I’m still on the fence about the buggy rides that need to be taken from the entrance to the residences and back. It might be less of a hassle for residents to actually be able [...]
QUESTION FROM INDIA: I need your help to know how much is the average monthly expenditure in Seychells for a family of 3 (Myself, my wife and my 3 year old son who is about to go to pre school). Information I am looking here is excluding Accomodation. Individual costing per month: Electricity, Water, Internet, [...]
I borrowed a bike and cycled from our hotel room to the jetty, this made taking random pictures of part of the island possible. We had a great time!
The following are random images taken at Hilton Labriz Seychelles on Silhouette island:
Here are a few images taken of Silhouette beach:
Here are pictures I took of our beach front villa room, I’m not an expert so it could have been taken a lot better but here’s a brief idea of the place anyway:
