Exploring from Your Takamaka Beach Hotel
It’s easy to get around Mahé by car, bus or taxi, and there are several other local beaches you can explore from your Takamaka Beach hotel.

And outside of peak surfing season, it’s still a beautiful place to enjoy a lazy day and a romantic Seychelles sunset.
