Seychelles, West coast

On our second day we had a lovely sun shower after breakfast, so we were in no hurry to saddle up for the daily drive. We all had relaxed into vacation mode really quickly, and just enjoyed reading, swimming in the pool and chilling out.

All the beaches on the Seychelles are public beaches, and it's easy to find somewhere to swim. Around every corner of the road there was another beautiful beach, here's Anse Takamaka and Anse La Mouche:

We had heard that the beach by the Four Seasons Hotel is one of the prettier ones on the island, so we decided to head there to have a swim. We had to park outside the hotel area and walk down to the beach, a rather long hike, but it sure was worth it!

This beach, Anse Petite, felt like a lagoon, as it was protected and sheltered and had no waves at all.

Look at these colours!

We had lunch back at the southeast coast, down at a beachside café. It was really enjoyable thanks to the setting, and the chance to have lunch with our feet in the sand, but unfortunately the food wasn't all that.

In the late afternoon we decided to go back to the hotel and chill out, and the lovely host family offered to cook us up an easy meal so we wouldn't have to drive out again. We gratefully accepted and got offered some beef with mushroom, a pork dish AND - an island speciality, fruit bat curry!

Lucas and Nathan were brave and tested it out, apparently it tasted a bit like salted beef.
