This week, our destination is the paradisiac Seychelles Islands, where we will discover the magnificent island of Mahé.

Mahé, the largest island in the Seychelles, lies northeast of the country and is home to around 90% of the total population. The island is named after a former French governor of Mauritius, Bertrand-François Mahé de La Bourdonnais. Most of the population occupy the north and east of the island, where the international airport is also opened, opened in 1971. To the south are the Ternay Marine National Park and the Port Launay Marine National Park. The island was first visited by the British in 1609, and it was only during the expedition of Lazare Picault in 1742 that the Europeans returned to Mahe. Until 1814, it was under French ownership, at the time of the British colonization, which lasted until 1976, the year in which the Seychelles became independent.
