The annual Seychelles Regatta, held in August or September each year, is one of the most highly anticipated events on the Seychelles' social calendar. A jam-packed schedule of events, including live music performances, sports competitions, beach games and, of course, yacht races, spans over the full weekend, attracting hundreds of revellers to Beau Vallon, where the action takes place.
Countless restaurants and pop-up shops spill over into the busy streets during this festive weekend, as well as endless food stalls where you can sample local street food and Creole cuisine. Travellers will be treated to traditional music and sega dancing around bonfires, as the sun goes down.
How to get to there: Beginning early in the morning, reaching Beau Vallon by taxi is recommended as parking is limited. Beau Vallon is roughly one hour from the hotel, in the north of Mahé. A taxi from the hotel costs roughly EUR 55*.
