Padangbai has serene beaches with crystal clear waters, ideal for snorkeling and diving. At the Blue Lagoon Beach, the coral is viewable from the shore. Bias Tegul Beach is all white sand and inviting waters, more isolated than the Blue Lagoon. On your walk to Bias Tegul, you will catch sight of Mount Agung, Bali's largest hilltop. Not far from Bias Tegul is another beach with black sands. Visit the Pura Silayukti Temple (11th century) and other temples throughout this small, walkable town.
Victoria on Mahé is one of the smallest capital cities in the world, and the only major port in the Seychelles. It's also the only town in the country - every other settlement is a village. The courthouse and main post office have been untouched since colonial times, but rebuilt streets emanating from the center give the town a clean and modern look. The Natural History Museum in the center of town houses an eclectic collection with bones of the extinct Seychelles crocodile, giant robber crabs, dried out fish, a deformed piglet in a jar and lots of glassy-eyed stuffed animals. Other displays include the wreckage of a ship which came to grief off the Amiranteds in 1570 and a display of gris gris artefacts. For history of the country's people, visit the National History Museum or the Seychelles People's United Party Museum, which celebrates the history of the party. Victoria's Botanical Gardens are highly recommended for short and shady walks among a variety of native and introduced trees. Within the gardens is a cafeteria, a pen of giant tortoises and an orchid garden.
