  1. The first waterfall on our list is a small yet beautiful and famous waterfall called the Valle de Mai Waterfall. This waterfall is said to be "the gem of Seychelles", due to its absence on google maps, and its incredible natural beauty. This waterfall is located in the Vallee de Mai National Park on Praslin Island, which was recognized by UNESCO as one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Seychelles. Therefore, many tourists agree that this waterfall is one of Seychelle’s must-see attractions.


    Valle de Mai Waterfall is a tiny waterfall that is only 2 meters high. But the tropical trees around it, and the sight of the waterfall's water falling down to the slippery rocks, creating small rainbows with sun rays is for sure a treat to your eyes. Visiting this waterfall, you will also have a chance to see "Coco De Mer" - the largest nut in the world, and the Black Parrot - the national bird of Seychelles in the Vallee de Mai National Park.


    Since you can't find the location of this waterfall on google maps, you'll need the help of regular maps, or local residents. The road towards Valle de Mai Waterfall is quite slippery, so remember to bring water shoes and be careful on the way there!

  3. Another beautiful natural waterfall on the Mahe island is the Port Launay Waterfall, or Port Glaud Waterfall. this waterfall is located just 1 km from the main road on the west coast of Mahe island, so it is also a very accessible waterfall that you should check out if you have a chance to be in Seychelles. According to many tourists, this waterfall is "the most impressive waterfall in Seychelles," or "one of the most beautiful natural wonders in Seychelles."


    Port Launay Waterfall is a tall waterfall with crystal clear water. The clear water makes a beautiful freshwater pool next to the waterfall which is best for swimming, especially on hot days when the weather is humid. Many people love coming here to relax on the cooling water and listen to the sounds of birds in the tropical forest surrounding the waterfall.


    Located in the wetlands of Port Launay, this waterfall is also very close to Port Launay's mangrove forest which is famous for being a splendid environment for various kinds of fishes, birds, and the endangered Sheath-tailed Bat. Therefore, it could be a great idea to visit this forest after you are done relaxing and taking photographs in the Port Launay Waterfall.

  4. After visiting Sauzier Waterfall and Port Launay Waterfalls, you might want to stop by the Grand Anse Waterfall on the west side of Mahe Island. Even though the trek to this waterfall is challenging, there are some small fees you'll have to pay to visit this waterfall, including an entrance fee on weekdays(around 25 rupees per person), and a guiding fee for local guides(around 150 rupees per person). However, the experience you have after visiting this waterfall will make it all worth it!


    Grand Anse Waterfall is famous for having a stair-like structure that cascades into a deep pool of dark-colored fresh water. The water is clear and a bit cold, but very refreshing to swim and dive. However, there are some big rocks inside the pool that are not easy to see from above, so don't jump in the pool without letting the local guide know, or you'll very likely hurt yourself and ruin your trip. If you're not a fan of swimming, this is a nice place for taking impressive pictures.


    The path to the Grand Anse Waterfall is long and a bit difficult to reach, that's why you will need a local guide. Propriate hiking shoes are much needed.

This trail is close to the river and gets steep in between, so it gets quite slippery in most parts. It’s advisable to wear non-slippery hiking shoes and walk with extra caution.
