IntroductionThis mountainous island, 20 mi/35 km northwest of Mahe, is a wonderful place for a hike and a view of the sunset. Granite peaks are interspersed with forests, and the whole place is enveloped in bird song and a riot of tropical color. There are no roads on the island, which can only be reached by boat (under optimal conditions, Silhouette is a two- to three-hour trip from Mahe). The only hotel is the Silhouette Island Lodge. Just north of Silhouette is North Island, home to a few farmers. http://www.labriz-seychelles.com.
