Sunset Beach Hotel, as you might guess from its name, is the best spot to watch the sunsets on Mahé Island. Head down to the beach to sink your toes in the sand, or opt for the hotel’s ‘sunset on the rocks’ restaurant for panoramic views.

Known locally as Sunset Rocks, the rocks on the corner of Anse Kerlan beach are a quite the location. Take a picnic and some drinks, look out over Cousin and Cousine islands, relax and enjoy!

Sunset cruise

There are countless charter boat companies in Seychelles, most of which will offer a sunset cruise. This is an exciting and romantic way to see the sunset, and many of the larger hotels, such as Constance Lémuria on Praslin, offer this directly to their guests. What’s more, the skipper will be able to take you to the spot with the clearest skies on that particular evening – a luxury you can only enjoy by boat.
