On Mahé there are more than 70 beaches with fine, white, powdery sand and lush vegetation. In addition, fantastic coral reefs and diving spots await visitors all around the island. The water is so clear that you can take terrific underwater photos. And there is no end to the colorful subjects: the coastal waters are home to 100 types of coral and 900 types of fish. And for those who would rather explore the underwater world from a boat, there are glass-bottom boat tours in St. Anne Marine National Park.
