More than 100 years old, the garden is found in the heart of Victoria. Originally planted to experiment with growing crop species during the colonial era, the garden's purpose has since undergone metamorphosis and is a present-day park open to the public. See local bird species at play here, from the Seychelles Bulbul to the Seychelles Blue Pigeon. The garden is also home to the Coco De Mer, a world-renowned palm tree and Aldabran Giant Tortoises, one of the Seychelles Archipelago's 115 variant islands. A 45-minute drive from Banyan Tree Seychelles, Victoria is Mahe's largest settlement and the capital of the Republic of Seychelles. A third of all Seychellois reside in Victoria – a population of 23,300. With local shops and Eden Plaza, couples will enjoy the experience of winding through a postcard-perfect town. Taste Seychellian rum while delighting in flaky forkfuls of freshly barbecued fish at the Rum Shack on Intendance Bay. Visit the organic farm garden that supplies Banyan Tree Seychelles with almost three quarters of its fresh ingredients, and engage in an interactive cooking experience that will introduce you to Seychellois gastronomy. An array of food and crafts can be found at the market in Victoria. Couples strolling through hand in hand will see fishermen haul their catch to market, stalls offering fragrant spices and citronella, sellers purveying tea and local delicacies and a beautiful collection of local crafts. The locals fashion crafted items from the ubiquitous island coconut, and also make jewellery and silk paintings by hand. Banyan Tree Seychelles is a homing zone for turtles to lay eggs each year. Turtle season begins in October and ends in February, when the last nest hatches and the final baby turtle crawls to the sea safely to find life in the ocean. With its languid ways, time-honoured traditions and carefree lifestyle, La Digue is a scenic island where you can enjoy a refreshing coconut drink before experiencing plantation life firsthand at L'Union Estate. Swim in the waters of the world-famous Anse Source D'Argent, before feasting on a Creole lunch at La Domaine. Visit the neighbouring island of Praslin and embark on a guided tour to the enigmatic Vallée de Mai, where the legendary Coco-de-Mer grows in the shadow of a hidden valley. The site is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is believed to be the legendary Garden of Eden. This French-colonial-style Roman Catholic church was built in 1874 and is located in Victoria. It is the centre of religious life for many Seychellois and features a small garden with a graceful statue of the Virgin Mary. The island is a spiritual harbour for international sporting and recreational fisherman, who return each year to break fishing records. Numerous records have been set within the teeming archipelago; world records for Striped Bonito, Bonefish, Giant Guitarfish, Bigeye Trevally, Bluefin Trevally, Giant Trevally, Moustache Grouper, Humphead Maori Wrasse and Dogtooth Tuna are just some of them. With some of the world's ripest fishing waters, Seychelles has an abundance of Wahoo, Sailfish, Dorado, Tuna, Rainbow Runner and Marlin, making it a big-game fishing arena for both seasoned and novice fishermen.
