When you have time away from beaches, you should spare time for the visit of beautiful town, easily accessible .

Victoria is a small town with not a lot to see, you can walk to any point in town. The market is a good place to go for fresh produce and fish. There are interesting places to see such as the mini Big Ben clock in the town center.

Victoria is very small that you can walk everywhere in 20 min. By walking in Victoria you can see. Nothing important..

Most people go to Seychelles to see the beautiful beaches and parks. This place is away from the beaches. If you have booked a long visit, maybe it is worth visiting this place. Otherwise, I am not sure if it worth spending time to see it.

When visiting Victoria you cannot miss the "Little Ben". Originally erected in 1903. It is in good condition and gives everybody the correct time. Be careful when taking photographs as it stands in the middle of a small traffic roundabout. This is the replica of the time piece which stood in Victoria Street, London, not in Victoria Station, London. It... More

Very poor and not worth the time or money. You can lean much more just visiting villages and other islands
