Description:

Port Launay Marine Park can be found in the north-west of the Seychelles’ largest island, Mahe. Containing a number of beaches and small offshore islands, the area has plenty to offer in terms of beauty and intrigue. Thankfully, Port Launay (North) doesn’t disappoint, and lives up to this billing with gorgeous scenery, calm, shallow water, and plenty in the way of activities and attractions. The beach is especially popular with guests of the nearby Constance Ephelia Resort, who can easily reach the sand on-foot. However, guests coming from further afield will have no problems getting here thanks to the nearby road. Here, parking spaces and bus stops ensure that arrival by car, taxi, or bus is simple for all. Upon arrival, visitors may be struck at the sheer variety of activities available here. The calm ocean surface lends itself well to swimming and snorkelling, while the numerous rental options mean that visitors can try their hand at surfing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, scuba diving, fishing, sailing, or even kayaking and canoeing. Such a variety of activities is rare in the Seychelles, making this beach a great option for the more active Seychelles holidaymaker. That’s not to say that you can’t relax here either. The beautiful sandy surface and ample shade ensure that long, laid-back days relaxing in the tropical sunshine are just as rewarding as days spent surfing or scuba-diving. While the vast majority of visitors will likely be guests of the Constance Ephelia Resort, Port Launay (North) offers plenty to those willing to come from further afield. Extensive equipment rentals such as those on offer here are a rarity in the Seychelles, so be sure to make the most of it during your holiday on Mahé!
