Step Away from the Screen: Why Seychelles is the Ideal Digital Detox Retreat

We are all guilty of having not so healthy habits when it comes to constantly checking our phones and devices, which is why it’s good to sometimes have a little digital detox and the Seychelles is the perfect place to do that.

The Seychelles wide variety of islands is what makes it such a special destination – each one is unique in geography, character and history.

With regular air and sea transport out of Mahé, you can explore the different islands hassle-free. Choose from ferry services, domestic flights and even helicopter transfers that are all available daily.

Just imagine: You wake up to the soothing sound of the ocean. The sun is beaming through your blinds. As you open the curtains, you’re greeted with golden sand and palm trees swaying in the breeze. There’s no need to check your feed. Only a sense of calm is present. Is it a dream? Not in Seychelles! With direct flights and affordable accommodation, this could be you.

After seeing the main islands, pop over to the peaceful outer islands such as Desroches and Alphonse. Privately owned, they remain part of the few untouched corners of the world.

In Descroches, explore the forest, lighthouse, village and other sights on 15 km of bike trails. The raw beauty will make you forget you ever had a Facebook.

Along with warm water and captivating scenery, you can expect uncrowded beaches in Seychelles. The most famous surfing spot is Grand Anse beach in La Digue. Aside from a beautiful shore, you’ll find great beach breaks.

Mahé is another popular choice offering pristine spots for different types of surfing and consistent waves on the east side of the island. Although you can hang ten throughout the year, the best time for surfing in Seychelles is April to September.

Whether you’re a serial Netflix binger, an office 9-5er or a casual computer and smartphone user, we could all do with some time away from the screens. If you’re ready to tune out, you won’t miss the gadgets in Seychelles.
