This attractive retreat is located on Silhouette Island – a large granite island 19 miles from Mahé with unspoiled jungles, towering mountains, and wide stretches of white-sand beach. Once home to pirates and plantations many years ago; the island is now home to a wide variety of holiday-goers and only 50 residents, though there are still a few plant nurseries and vegetable patches. The ambience here has that typical island vibe – tranquil, indulgent, and with a touch of fun.
NB – Timings are approximate and will vary according to road conditions, weather and traffic. Transportation in a shared 4x4 car with either 5 or 7 window seats.
After breakfast today you’ll transfer from the resort to the airport where you’ll catch your onward flight.
