While it’s busy and undeniably fishy, Sir Selwyn Selwyn-Clarke Market is a great place to get a slice of real Seychellois life. Traders come here to sell their fresh fish, vegetables, and various other local goods.

4. Zip-line through the treetops at Constance Ephélia

The restaurant right at the top of Eagles Nest mountain on La Digue is the spot for a perfect sunset, serving drinks and fantastic Creole food. It’s small though, so book ahead.
